CONVIDE: Consistency in the View-Based Development of Cyber-Physical Systems


Modern cyber-physical systems (CPS), such as cars or production plants, are full of electronic and mechanical components controlled by software. The system as a whole can only function if all these parts interact perfectly. Designing such systems presents the challenge of keeping the system architecture consistent at all times.

Project goals

New methods are being developed in the Collaborative Research Center "Consistency in the View-Based Development of Cyber-Physical Systems" (Convide) at KIT with a budget of 11 million euros over four years. Software methods for structuring and organizing work in the development of CPS are being researched. They are to ensure faster development cycles in industry.

Share of ITIV in the project

In the project, ITIV will explore new consistency-based methods and processes for incremental safety analysis and validation of cyber-physical systems, such as automated vehicles.
