Fault-tolerant Embedded Platforms

Fraunhofer IKS develops fault-tolerant embedded systems.

Embedded systems cannot be allowed to shut down during interruptions. Instead, they must continue to provide critical functions in a dependable manner. For this reason, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS develops fault-tolerant embedded systems that offer the following advantages:

  • Understandable architecture descriptions for adaptive systems
  • Flexible and adaptive architecture building blocks
  • Less hardware redundancy
  • Platforms that are ASIL-D-compliant
  • Cost-effective development
