Dependable Embedded Systems
Embedded systems are electronic devices built in products that control one or several functions, with limited resources and in hostile environmental conditions. Transport systems such as lifts, trains and cars that we frequently use contain a large number of embedded systems in charge of controlling the movement, connectivity, self-diagnose, energy management, comfort and safety of the people, among other functions.
In this area, we are advancing in the development of these processing systems that integrate hardware, software, FPGA and communications, thus providing objects where certain capabilities are integrated, such as dependability (safety, availability, reliability, and maintenance), security, “intelligence”, connectivity, energy management, interaction with the environment and productivity.
Typical use cases
ELEVATION / VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION SECTOR
Fleet of 500,000 lifts worldwide (50,000 with teleservice)
Industry 4.0 oriented Cyber Physical Systems.
Digital train (CBM power converters, system reliability, RAMS-LLC.)
Functional safety systems up to SIL4 with secure train-land communication.
