I am working at itemis as a project manager and business development manager (automotive) supporting and promoting the use of Eclipse and Open Source tooling for the implementation of integrated tool chains and the support of model driven (software) engineering.

Managing Machine Learning Software Integration with Conan

In recent weeks, we have been working on a project to support machine learning development in the automotive domain with an integrated development environment. In addition to setting up an IDE based on Eclipse (including many interesting features), we also investigated how to support the work of the development team in managing the dependencies of the embedded projects (in terms of C/C++ libraries).

Navigating AUTOSAR models with complex queries

In the previous blog posts I showed you how the basic features of Eclipse and Artop can be used to perform basic searches and navigation on AUTOSAR models. However, there are also often cases, where a user wants to perform more complex queries on AUTOSAR models.  Read more >

Weaving Testing into the Web of Traceability

In the development of safety-critical systems it is essential to prove that the developed product fullfills all requirements (including system requirements, safety requirements and security requirements) to ensure the correct functionality and to prove that engineering is up to the state-of-the-art for legal reasons.

UML as a Standard: Where the Promise fails

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is well established as a modeling language in many domains. One strong argument for the use of UML is the fact, that it has been standardized by the Object Management Group (OMG). Since a model-driven approach with UML mainly adds value if the model is used to generate additional artifacts such as code or custom reports, one might expect that writing such as transformation would be straightforward with some knowledge of the UML specification. However, the standard is often not well reflected by the APIs of UML tools. Read more >

Search in and Navigate through AUTOSAR Models

In the previous post "How to configure your free AUTOSAR model viewer" I showed how to use the ARTOP project and Eclipse to configure an Eclipse RCP which can be used to view AUTOSAR model at no cost. In this post, I will add information about the default search and navigation functionality by the tooling. In a following post, I will introduce even more powerful functionality through scripting.

How to configure your free AUTOSAR model viewer

Viewing and analyzing AUTOSAR models is a recurring task in automotive software development. Very often this is done by just inspecting the XML, which is cumbersome. Some companies have smarter "simple" tools in their portfolio, but they are often included in their commercial offering only. However, there is a no-cost solution, based on the community-source AUTOSAR tool platform Artop which supports some interesting features.  Read more >

How to fix Artop memory problems

In the automotive domain, itemis and others make intensive use of the community project Artop (Autosar Tool Platform) – an Eclipse (EMF) based implementation of the AUTOSAR meta-model. Artop supports the conversion of models between the many revisions of the AUTOSAR standard.  Read more >

Specification-By-Example for Model Transformations

At itemis one of our core development activities in a lot of our projects is the specification and implementation of model-to-model transformations. In a large project in the automotive domain we have been implementing a huge code base of transformations to and from a common domain model.  Read more >

How to use a textual editor for the Autosar Adaptive Platform

AUTOSAR is about to release its new specification for the Autosar Adaptive Platform. According to AUTOSAR, the difference to classic AUTOSAR is: "In comparison to the AUTOSAR Classic Platform the AUTOSAR Runtime Environment for the Adaptive Platform dynamically links services and clients during runtime."

BMW builds AUTOSAR backbone with open source projects sponsored by itemis

On September 28th the 9th AUTOSAR Open Conference took place in Gothenburg. From an Eclipse/Open Source point of view, Bernd Jäger's (BMW) talk on their Symphony project is very interesting. Read more >
