Successful Completion of Project PANORAMA



Automotive systems have undergone a radical shift in the past decade, impacting the design and approach to software and hardware development. The ITEA3 research project PANORAMA, launched in 2019, examined model-based methods and tools that improve how heterogenous embedded hardware and software systems are designed and built by heterogenous teams. Drawing on resources from Germany, Finland, Portugal, Sweden, and Turkey, the project explored best practices and novel analytical approaches that lead to new development guidance.

Project Goals and Outcomes

The main course of action focused on extending the scope and interoperability of current system-level model-based analysis approaches, particularly by enhancing existing abstract performance metamodels. Its aims included the enhancement of metamodels and the related tool frameworks with a common and open platform to support collaborative development.

The work focused on the Amalthea model, an open metamodel for timing issues used to exchange and collaborate on models. One outcome of the project was an importer, an open-source tool created by INCHRON that brings AMALTHEA models into INCHRON’s metamodel. The importer is based upon the EMF4CPP framework, a C++ implementation and type mapping for the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) core that INCHRON also contributes to.

The AMALTHEA model was also extended and consolidated during the project, for which INCHRON provided critical input. This also led to appropriate extensions of the INCHRON metamodel.

As of March 2022, the PANORAMA project is officially complete. 23 partners were involved in this timing analysis behavior project, including Bosch, Siemens Saab, and Vector. INCHRON extends its thanks to our project partners for three fruitful years of collaboration as well as the BMBF for the European ITEA3 funding, without which such projects would be exceptionally difficult to support.
