For three days at the end of February, researchers of two academic partners of the project met at Science Park in Amsterdam. Dolly Sapra and Lukas Miedema from the Parallel Computing Systems group of the University of Amsterdam, and Florian Haas from the Embedded Systems group of the University of Augsburg joined to connect their tools together:
- The Cecile Coordination Compiler
- The Design Space Exploration
- The scheduling and timing analysis tool Faktum
- The Artie Runtime.
These had been developed within the ADMORPH project and span across multiple work packages. With the project approaching its final months, the three researchers pursued their objective of delivering a live demonstration of the interaction of their tools, which represent all the layers in the software stack of the project. Collaboratively pointing at diagrams helped to identify obstacles in the integration, which were dismantled successfully. An application specification provided by Qmedia can now be compiled into the exchange format used throughout the project, and fed to the design space exploration for elaborating the best hardware platform that enables a fault-tolerant real-time execution of the application. The scheduling framework then finds suitable schedules for redundant execution, which are executed by the runtime system. At the end, the graduate student and the both postdocs enjoyed the blinken lights of the demonstrator.
