The kick-off meeting of PEGASE project (Guaranteed Performances for communicating embedded systems) was held in Toulouse on October 8. This 3 year project, partly funded by ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche), focuses on deriving mathematical methods that can provide tight bounds on maximum network delays in airplane (AFDX) and space communication systems (SpaceWire). RTaW is the software developer in this project. The other partners making up the consortium are Thales Research and Technologies, Thales Alenia Space, Thales Avionics, ONERA, ENS Cachan, LIP Laboratoire de l’Informatique du Parallélisme and INRIA Rhône-Alpes.
