MCSmartOS: A Dependable OS for Compositional Embedded Systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), there will
be an explosion in the number of connected embedded
systems. These systems will be present in every kind of
environment, and even the simplest and smallest objects
will execute software while interacting with others. This
development will also lead to an increased demand for
new computing platforms with hard guarantees on safety,
security, real-time, maintainability, and compositionality.
An underestimated challenge is the need for running
software from different suppliers on the same device, and
to also integrate/update/remove new or existing modules
at runtime in order to achieve a long lifetime of the
device. These changes also have to be performed
dependably, and will lead to a massive number of
coexisting software variants, reflecting different user
requirements, changing legislations, service features,
locations, etc.
Those characteristics will be present in a wide variety of
fields, as the atutomotive industry, power electronics,
house automation, etc.
Therefore, MCSmartOS offers a highly flexible design
approach, enabling suppliers to develop software
modules independently, and to dynamically compose
them into existing systems with one or more processor
cores. Apart, it aims on minimal porting effort to support
the expected big diversity of hardware architectures.
