Following the Diva STREP project, we keep an active collaboration with the SINTEF institute. Fran√ßois Fouquet visited SINTEF for 8 weeks. During this visit, we combined the results of Kevoree and the result of the Moderate from SINTEF project to provide a dynamic component model for a micro-controllers based Internet of Things. Indeed, as the Internet of Things promises new ways for humans to interact with computing systems by seamlessly integrating resource constrained devices and traditional computing environment. These new computing environments are highly volatile and force applications to embed self-adaptive behaviors. The contribution of this collaboration is Œº-Kevoree: a plain C implementation of the Kevoree runtime which can be deployed on poor in resources micro-controllers. Evaluation of memory usage, reliability and performance shows that Œº-Kevoree is a viable solution with strong benefits over adaptation through dynamic firmware upgrades.
Following the MoCAA Equipe associée, we keep an active collaboration with Colorado State University. Benoit Baudry and Benoit Combemale visited CSU in April 2012 and Philippa Bennett spent a 4-monhts internship in Triskell. We continue the collaboration with Prof. Sanjay Rajopadhye (from the optimizing compiler domain) to cross-fertilize both HPC and MDE. Results of this collaboration were published in the Journal of Software and Systems in October 2012.
