Adaptive Software

Fraunhofer IKS makes embedded systems adaptive and extendable.

In order to adjust to changing operational conditions, autonomous systems must exhibit a high degree of adaptability and extendability.  For this reason, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS develops adaptive software architectures that enable:

  • Fast and cost-effective development of your adaptive systems
  • Flexible and adaptive architecture building blocks
  • Updates and upgrades to safety-critical functions
  • Continuous overview of all safety and real-time requirements
  • Shorter certification intervals
