DESERVE aims at designing and developing a Tool Platform for embedded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to exploit the benefits of cross-domain software reuse, standardised interfaces, and easy and safety-compliant integration of heterogeneous modules to cope with the expected increase of functions complexity and the impellent need of cost reduction. The DESERVE Platform will provide the environment for ADAS design, development and pre-validation and even pre-certification of software and hardware modules to be integrated in ADAS applications. Safety critical requirements will be considered in the design and systems development making integrated, trusted, interoperable tools and tool-chains available.
