ACTORS addresses the challenging problem of efficient design of embedded systems for complex and demanding high-performance applications. The project approach is to raise the abstraction level of the specifications and computing models, to include resource-constrained design exploration stages and real-time resource adaptation by developing the appropriate models and
tools supporting the design from the specification down to the embedded implementation. Three main innovative technologies will
- high level dataflow specification and programming models for design space exploration,
- virtualization and
- feedback-based resource scheduling.
The targeted execution platforms are Linux- based multiprocessor/multicore systems and FPGAs. Three design cases
will be developed to validate and demonstrate the new approach:
- multimedia processing on cellular phone terminals
- embedded control and
- high-performance video systems.
