Next generation embedded ICT systems are interconnected and collaborating including through the Internet of things, and providing citizens and businesses with a wide range of innovative applications and services in living and working environments. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) need to comply with essential requirements like safety, security and near-zero power consumption as well as size, usability and adaptability.
Work is complementary to the activities addressed by the Electronic Components and Systems Joint Undertaking (ECSEL), which are focussed on large scale federating projects and integrated demonstrations and pilots.
H2020 calls for research and innovation actions focus in two specific areas:
Projects are expected to be driven by industrial requirements, to be well balanced between industry and academia, and to include a demonstration and validation phase with realistic use cases.
The innovation actions will connect innovators across diferent value chains, in two themes:
The expected impact consists of a strong reduction by 30% of the development time for CPS, together with a stronger collaboration across value chains. It will result on developing a competitive offer for next generation core ICT platforms in Europe.
