During the last years, different projects and initiatives addressed the main high-level research topics related to mixed criticality: certification by design, reconfiguration, fault detection, fault isolation and redundancy. However, some important challenges remain, being one of them the power consumption management and optimization in dependable mixed-criticality systems. Power is another resource (together with time and space) that has to be shared among different applications and the available energy has to be shared by all running applications in a mixed criticality system.
SAFEPOWER will advance the state-of-the-art towards a low-power reference architecture combining periodic time-triggered and event-triggered rate-constrained activities with power-efficient techniques for fault isolation, temporal predictability and determinism.
The main objective of SAFEPOWER is to enable the development of cross-domain mixed-criticality systems with low power, safety and security requirements by means of the following key contributions:
The external assessment with respect to safety certification standards (e.g., IEC-61508) of the certifiable subset of the architecture and the power management techniques in order to pave the way towards the early adoption of the technology for the development of mixed criticality CRTES with safety requirements.
The definition and implementation of built-in security mechanisms that support the safety and low-power management of the system (e.g., authenticity, availability). These contributions will, for the first time until now, enable the use of low-power features in mixed critical embedded systems with no or at least controllable impact on safety and security features. This will enable the development of low power mixed criticality CRTES under the strict safety requirements imposed by current safety standards (e.g., IEC-61508).
