Eclipse Working Group aims to improve tools for embedded system development through open innovation
Ottawa, Canada and Embedded World, Nuremberg, Germany – February 23, 2015 - PolarSys, a working group of the Eclipse Foundation, is pleased to announce five new industry solutions for embedded system development. The new solutions target the key aspects of embedded system development, including Systems and Software Engineering, Software Development, and Verification and Validation. The first PolarSys solutions will be available for download in March, 2015.
PolarSys is a collaboration among some of the world’s largest systems engineering companies, including Airbus, Ericsson, CEA List, and Thales. This group is dedicated to creating an environment of open innovation that will create better tools and methods for systems engineering. It is expected that the resulting solutions will be better suited to the requirements of modern engineering teams and will provide more flexible extensibility and customization that makes it easier to adopt the tools to the methods and processes of software engineering teams.
The new PolarSys solutions include the following:
All of the PolarSys solutions are based on technology and tools that have been deployed by large-scale systems engineering teams. All the solutions are open source and are provided free of charge under the Eclipse Public License (EPL).
"The innovation required to advance systems engineering tools needs to be led by the key system engineering companies," explains Dominique Toupin, Chair of the PolarSys Working Group and Product Manager at Ericsson. "This is why we believe the PolarSys Working Group is a perfect environment for open innovation that can include many different companies participating in the development of future tools to systems engineers."
The Eclipse Foundation and the PolarSys Working Group will be demonstrating the PolarSys solutions at the Embedded World conference on February 24-26 in Nuremberg, Germany. The Eclipse Foundation booth will be in Hall 4, booth 160. Representatives of the Eclipse Foundation will also be presenting at the Embedded World conference: Gaël Blondelle will present "How to Test Complex Systems" on February 25 at 1:30pm and Benjamin Cabé will present “Building the Internet of Things with Eclipse IoT Stack and Java” on February 26.
PolarSys is an industrial working group dedicated to open source tools for embedded systems development. It addresses the full range of systems engineering activities, including modeling, requirements engineering, simulation, code and debugging, and testing and verification.
PolarSys is led by large organizations such as Airbus, Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA), Ericsson, and Thales.
Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools, and runtimes for building, deploying, and managing software across the lifecycle. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities, research institutions, and individuals extend, complement, and support the Eclipse Platform.
The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects. Full details of Eclipse and the Eclipse Foundation are available at www.eclipse.org.
