MBAT Exhibition at ITEA/ARTEMIS Co-Summit Paris Oct 2012
The MBAT Project has been shown at the ITEA/Co-Summit in Paris, France, 30 & 31 October 2012. Check out this video on youtube consisting of the slides shown at the MBAT booth and some photos made there: http://www.youtube.com/user/mbatproject .
3rd Full Plenary Meeting Vienna 5 & 6 September 2012
The 3rd MBAT full plenary meeting (FPM) took place in Vienna, Austria, 5 & 6 September 2012, and has been hosted by AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology). In addition there has been a technical meeting on 4 Sept and Steering Board & Technical Project Committee meeting on 7 Sept. These meetings had in sum 80 participants representing 35 of 38 MBAT partners (companies & research institutions). Compared with the two previous FPMs in Stuttgart and Copenhagen which had stronger focus on project structure (e.g. sub project & work package status presentations), the meeting in Vienna had much more focus on the use cases dealt within MBAT as these are seen as the driving element of the project. Thus, for each of the use cases there have been presentations and discussions. Many of these use cases are already in good shape and several of these are planned to be shown in form of demonstrators during the upcoming first MBAT live review for ARTEMIS-JU end of 2012. Beside the use case discussions the MBAT RTP (Reference Technology Platform) in its first version has been discussed which is also in a good status to be provided in form of a fast track version in short terms, but in any case for the upcoming review. In addition, it is planned for future FPMs to have the use case discussion supported by demonstrator exhibitions in form of so-called market places to make the project even more lively by showing tangible & running results.
The next MBAT full plenary meeting is planned for mid of May 2013 in Cambridge, UK, and will be hosted by MBAT partner Ricardo.
2nd Full Plenary Meeting Copenhagen 23 & 24 May 2012
The second MBAT full plenary meeting took place in Copenhagen, lasted two days and was hosted by Aalborg University. It had 75 participants representing 35 of 38 partners (companies & research institutions). Besides the status & planning sessions for all sub projects and work packages, a very important topic has been the launch of the use cases already planned for the project. For this, a special session on the second day has been fully dedicated to this topic in which use case drivers and use case supporters (technology providers) had the chance to come together and to plan for the use case developments. The use cases serve as the most lively means to show the benefit which can be gained from the combination of static analysis and testing technologies available in the project. These use cases will also be used as basis for demonstrators showing exactly this benefit.

ARTEMIS Spring Event, 28.2.-1.3.2012, Nuremberg
ARTEMIS is very pleased to announce that the ARTEMIS Spring Event 2012 takes place on 28 & 29 February and 1 March 2012 in the Nurnberg Messe in Nuremberg, Germany.
MBAT co-hosting ARTEMIS Technology Conference 2012 Nuremberg, March 1, 2012
The aim of the 2012 ARTEMIS Technology Conference on Interoperability is to permit the different system engineering approaches towards interoperability for critical embedded systems to converge and to derive a common vision for an interoperability standard for this field of application whose realization can outlive the duration of a specific project. An ecosystem of projects and initiatives is envisaged to follow the path towards an interoperability standard and, in the end, to contribute to a joint ARTEMIS Reference Technology Platform (RTP).
Exchange Workshop -European projects on safety for cross-domain applications
January 31st, 2012 (14h-18h) - Toulouse, France
(detailed timing and location information available under DOWNLOADS, top bar)
Several European projects address safety certification/qualification for cross domain applications. Although each of these projects has its own specific goals, it seems clear that cross fertilization potential between those projects is important hence our suggestion to meet together.
