SAFEDMI: Safe Driver Machine Interface for ERTMS automatic train control PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: IST-031413
Involvment type: subcontracted
Start date: 2006-01-09
End date: 2008-01-08

The objective of the SAFEDMI project is to design and develop a DMI system that distinguishes itself from other trainborne DMIs currently available on the market by being able to satisfy at least SIL2 (Safety Integrity Level 2) according to CENELEC specifications (with all the related implications) and to integrate in such safe DMI safe wireless communication interfaces for configuration, SW and firmware downloading and diagnostic purposes.

The detailed proposed objectives are: (a) to design and develop a safe DMI integrated with the current on-board ERTMS systems developed according to the ERTMS Interface specifications; (b) to study and develop all the HW and SW solutions to properly address the safety and fault tolerance issues generated by the SIL 2 requirements; (c) to integrate in the safe DMI safe wireless communication interfaces for configuration, SW and firmware downloading and diagnostic purposes; (d) to design and develop a HW and SW tool infrastructure to support automatic test execution, simulating driver's action.

The safety issues to be tackled by the SAFEDMI project are related to: visualization, driver input data acquisition, data communication between on-board system components, data processing and wireless communication interface.

CRUTIAL: CRitical UTility InfrastructurAL Resilience PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: IST-2004-27513Involvment type: subcontracted
Start date: 2006-01-01
End date: 2008-12-31

The project, funded by European Community, addresses new networked ICT systems for the management of the electric power grid, in which artefacts controlling the physical process of electricity transportation need to be connected with information infrastructures, through corporate networks (intranets), which are in turn connected to the Internet.

HIDENETS: HIghly DEpendable ip-based NETworks and Services PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: IST-2004-26979
Project website:
Involvment type: participant
Start date: 2006-01-01
End date: 2008-12-31

HIDENETS - a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) in the European 6th Framework Program running in the period from January 2006 to March 2009. It developed and analyzed end-to-end resilience solutions for distributed applications and mobility-aware services in car-to-car communication scenarios with infrastructure service support.

CAUTION++: Capacity and Network Management for Increased Utilisation of wireless Systems of Next Generation++ PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: IST-2001-38229
Involvment type: subcontracted
Start date: 2002-11-01
End date: 2005-05-31

The main objective of the project is the smooth transition from existing wireless systems to new generation ones. CAUTION++ will exploit knowledge and system platform developed under the framework of CAUTION project and extend this to UMTS and systems beyond.

HIDE: High Level Integrated Design Enviroment for Dependability PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: Esprit Project 27439
Involvment type: subcontracted
Start date: 1998-06-15
End date: 1998-12-14

The main objective of HIDE is the creation of an integrated environment for the practitioner designer, allowing him to use UML (Unified Modelling Language) as front-end for the specification of both the system and the user requirements. The designer can easily validate his design, since the entire background mathematics will be hidden from him. From the basic UML model automatic transformations will derive the individual mathematical models for formal and quantitative validation. The results gained will be back annotated for presentation into the same UML model without any interaction of the user. HIDE eliminates the need for both a specific expertise in abstract mathematics and the tedious manual re-modelling of the system for mathematical analysis.

GUARDS: Generic Upgradable Architecture for Real-Time Dependable Systems PDF Print E-mail

Project contract: Esprit Project 20716
Project website:
Involvment type: subcontracted
Start date: 1996-02-01
End date: 1999-02-01

Objective: Led by three major industrialists in the Space, Nuclear and Railways fields, the GUARDS project addresses the development of methods, techniques and tools to support the design, implementation and validation of safety-critical real-time systems.

Achievements: The gap between the costly proprietary architectures targeted at very high dependability and cheap commercial architectures with less stringent requirements provides evidence of a lack of an intermediate class of architectures based on an acceptable compromise between high dependability, low cost and openness : this is the main objective of GUARDS.
