Embedded systems are present in virtually all application domains (automotive, robotics, smart production, home automation, etc.),
and the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) will lead to an even higher ubiquity. Becoming a global super-infrastructure for our
society, we will rely on an unprecedented number of connected devices within the IoT. Providing even the most critical services,
these systems must guarantee high levels of availability, reliability, safety, integrity, confidentiality, and maintainability for real-time
and secure operation.
In order to develop highly dependable and efficient systems, we envision massive HW/SW co-designs for future IoT devices. With
application-specific hardware that can be reconfigured and updated dynamically at runtime, future embedded platforms will also
become much more flexible and maintainable. In order to solve the problem of dynamically recomposing systems over long lifetimes,
we present a holistic concept consisting of a real-time operating system (RTOS) and a reconfigurable microcontroller unit (MCU).
These are co-designed to jointly satisfy the requirements of current and future embedded systems.
