The core scope of the Amalthea4public project was to enable efficient and effective software engineering for embedded multi-core systems. The focus was predominantly automotive systems but can be applied in aerospace and other systems design contexts. The goal of AMALTHEA4public was to integrate the results of various publicly funded projects with new developments and use the results of the forerunner AMALTHEA project to foster the transfer into application and to establish a community around the combined and continuous tool chain platform.

The open-source tool chain framework is positioned to be a de-facto standard for future software engineering design flows for automotive and other embedded systems. AMALTHEA’s result was an Eclipse-based open-source tool chain infrastructure with a basic set of tools included. AMALTHEA4public moved ahead with this by adding unique selling points (USPs), showing success stories and integrating recent and new research results. The project added features such as testing, verification and validation, safety, systems engineering, product line engineering and manycore support. It also addresses additional domains like ICT and automation. For current work see Eclipse APP4MC and Eclipse Capra.

This project was running from September 2014 to August 2017
