Success stories

State-of-the-art software in new vehicles must react in milliseconds, but there are no tools to validate this timing. The EU-funded MASTECS project developed innovative validation technology to assess the timing of software on complex processors and prepared it for commercial use. The technology could make aircraft and automobiles more environmentally friendly and safer for citizens.
