EU project promotes robust design
The EU has announced an €18million EU project designed to make technology ranging from mobile phones to satellites more robust and reliable.
The DEPLOY project will work across five important industry sectors – transportation, automotive, space, telecommunication and business information – to create new ways of building resilient computer systems.
Professor Michael Butler from the University of Southampton’s School of Electronics and Computer Science, pictured, said: “What is encouraging about this project is that our industry partners are really enthusiastic and have recognised the importance of incorporating robust design into their computer systems. We are using mathematical models to provide analysis of these designs, which will help eliminate errors before the systems are put together.”
The DEPLOY project, being led by Newcastle University, also features University of Dusseldorf, ETH (Zurich) and Aabo Academy (Finland), as well as Siemens, Bosch, Space Systems, Nokia and SAP.
