FRESCOR: Framework for Real-time Embedded Systems based on contracts

Frescor is a consortium research project funded in part by the European Union’s Sixth Framework Programme. The main objective of the Frescor project is to develop the enabling technology and infrastructure required to effectively use the most advanced techniques developed for real-time applications with flexible scheduling requirements, in embedded systems design methodologies and tools, providing the necessary elements to target reconfigurable processing modules and reconfigurable distributed architectures. The Frescor project started on 1st June 2006. The partners include: 6 leading European universities and 5 industrial partners. Rapita Systems is contributing research and development effort and access to its VirtualTime simulation tool. For more details visit http://www.frescor.org
