Assystem Germany is a partner for research and development, participating in numerous national and international, european projects.

TESTOMAT - Test Automation

Duration: 10/2017 - 09/2020
Sponsor: ITEA / EUREKA
Topic: Software, Test Automation, agile development

Nowadays, quality software has come to mean “easy to adapt” because of the constant pressure to change. Consequently, modern software teams seek a balance between reliability and agility. The TESTOMAT project will support software teams to strike the right balance by increasing the development speed without sacrificing quality. The project will ultimately result in a Test Automation Improvement Model, which will define key improvement areas in test automation, with the focus on measurable improvement steps.

Assystem Germany is a TESTOMAT project partner.

APPSTACLE - open standard APplication Platform for carS and TrAnsportation vehiCLEs

Duration: January 2017 - December 2019
Sponsors: ITEA / EUREKA
Topics: Smart Mobility, Software, Car2Car, Car2X, Cloud, 5G, Security

Today automotive software-intensive systems are developed in silos by each car manufacturer or original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in-house. This approach cannot meet the long-term challenges of the industry. One solution is to establish a standard car-to-cloud connection, open for external applications and the use of open source software wherever possible without compromising safety and security. The APPSTACLE result will include an open and secure cloud platform that interconnects a wide range of vehicles to the cloud via open in-car and Internet connection and is supported by an integrated open source software development ecosystem.

Assystem Germany is a project partner for test assurance (methodical, prototypical, tooling).

CrESt - Collaborative Embedded Systems / Model-based development of collaborative embedded systems

Duration: February 2017 - January 2020
Sponsors: BMBF
Topics: Embedded systems, software, model-based development

With the transition from classical embedded systems to networked, collaborative embedded systems, a wide range of new application possibilities for the German industry is created. In the CrESt project, 23 partners from industry and science have joined forces to implement new techniques and methods for the development of collaborative embedded systems based on the results of the SPES projects. The Collaborative Embedded Systems (CRESt) project aims to provide a comprehensive framework for the development of collaborative embedded systems, addressing the emerging challenges of developing collaborative embedded systems in dynamic system interconnects based on the SPES development methodology.

Assystem Germany is project partner for the areas of security, safety engineering, variation management, autonomous driving and tool integration (test design / TESTONA).

AMASS - Architecture-driven, Multi-concern and Seamless Assurance and Certification of Cyber-Physical Systems

Duration: April 2016 - March 2019
Sponsors: ECSEL JU / EU HORIZON 2020

AMASS will create and consolidate the de-facto European-wide open tool platform, ecosystem, and self-sustainable community for assurance and certification of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets including automotive, railway, aerospace, space, energy. The ultimate goal of AMASS is to lower certification costs for CPS in face of rapidly changing features and market needs. This will be achieved by establishing a novel holistic and reuse-oriented approach for architecture-driven assurance (fully compatible with standards such as AUTOSAR and IMA), multi-concern assurance (for co-analysis and co-assurance of e.g. security and safety aspects), and for seamless interoperability between assurance and engineering activities along with third-party activities (e.g. external assessments and supplier assurance).

Assystem Germany is Research partner for the following subject areas:

  • WP1: CaseStudy Platooning
  • WP3: Seamless Assurance (Safety)
  • WP5: Tool-Integration (TESTONA)

ASSUME - Affordable Safe & Secure Mobility Evolution

Duration: September 2015 - August 2018
Sponsors: ITEA / EUREKA, BMBF and others
Topics: Smart Mobility, Software

Future mobility solutions will increasingly rely on smart components that continuously monitor the environment and assume more and more responsibility for a convenient, safe and reliable operation. Currently the single most important roadblock for this market is the ability to come up with an affordable, safe multi-core development methodology that allows industry to deliver trustworthy new functions at competitive prices. ASSUME will provide a seamless engineering methodology, which addresses this roadblock on the constructive and analytic side.

Assystem Germany is involved as a project partner with the following topics:

  • Research on development and evaluation of static analysis techniques to measure model quality and identify hotspots of weak quality in model-based development projects, e.g. for Matlab / Simulink models
  • Development of a guided assessment process to identify potential security issues and attack scenarios on the basis of implementation defects detected by static analysis tools used in the Assume project
  • Research on static analysis techniques for software
  • Evaluation of static analysis methods and tools developed in the ASSUME project on Assystem case studies

INTELEKT - Generic simulation model for power modules in the electric drive

Duration: 2014 - end of 2016
Sponsors: BMBF / IKT 2020
Topics: Simulation, Failure Analysis, E-Mobility, ECU

Electronic power modules in areas such as powertrain, batteries, or on-board electronics are exposed to high electrical and mechanical stress in electric vehicles. Part of the results of the InTeLekt project will therefore be the future availability of a new simulation environment that permits faster assessment of the reliability and lifetime of power electronics. By the conclusion of the project in 2016, it should be possible to simulate error modes and their effects up to the vehicle level. The generic approach along with the experience and discoveries gained from simulation can then be reused in future projects by the industrial and research partners.The new simulation approaches from Assystem Germany (befor 1/2017: Berner & Mattner) obtained during the project will support better error analysis for the entire electric motor controller environment. That means that it will not only be possible to analyze functional components – error combinations and their effects on the entire electric/hybrid vehicle system can be derived more easily and earlier. Thanks to realistic simulation data, the industrial and research partners participating will benefit from significantly shorter development times and higher safety standards.Assystem Germany is project partner in the fields of simulation environment, modeling, safety engineering.
