Project description

Improve the functional and non-functional performance of tomorrow’s transportation systems with common digital models

Today, the shift to more globally connected and distributed systems at controlled cost constitutes the major challenge of innovation and competitiveness. In fact, the new generations of equipment will have to be able to integrate monitoring, communication and optimization functionalities while ensuring the efficient and safe execution of the basic functions of control/command. This issue leads us to rethink the design and deployment environments of application software. In addition, the environments for system simulation, software design and the platforms for embedded execution have so far been too often designed and developed in a weakly coupled way, ultimately involving a significant effort in the integration and validation phases of the developed system.

Launched in 2016 for a period of three years, the PST project aims to develop solid expertise in the assessment of the performance and operational safety of tomorrow’s transport (railway and aviation). For this, the project provides methodologies of systems and software engineering as well as embedded technology bricks that will contribute to improving the performance of these systems.

  • Evaluate and qualify the functional and non-functional performance of system components;
  • Capture the optimal value of these components in digital models.
