ALL-TIMES: Integrating European Timing Analysis Technology

ALL-TIMES is a medium-scale focused-research project within the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme on Research, Technological Development and Demonstration. The project was carried out Dec. 1st, 2007 - May 31st, 2010.

The project has been concerned with embedded systems that are subject to safety, availability, reliability, and performance requirements. More often than not, these requirements relate to correct timing, most notably in the automotive and aerospace areas. Consequently, the need for appropriate timing analysis methods and tools is rapidly growing.

However, the existing timing analysis technology by far have not exploited the full potential of state-of-the-art approaches and recent research results. In the daily practice, there has been a lack of efficient methods and tools for timing assessment.

This is where ALL-TIMES comes in. Led by the WCET analysis group at Mälardalen University, an internationally recognized research group in the field of timing analysis, the project has aimed at:

ALL-TIMES has enabled the interoperability of the various tools from leading commercial vendors and universities alike, and developed integrated tool chains using open tool frameworks and interfaces. In order to evaluate the tool integrations, a number of industrial case studies have been performed towards different end-user companies.
