Embedded Software Platform for the Eclipse Community (sponsored by IS2T)

This talk will aim to dissect MicroEJ’s rich set of tools to quickly build a Virtual Device featuring rich User Interface, Internet communication, and fast numerical processing. MicroEJ main features will be introduced, explaining how to develop an application for a specific MCU. This session covers several tools: Platform design and configuration, using a Virtual Device on desktop PC, multi-languages support (both high and low level), synchronous and asynchronous communications, RTOS, drivers, and libraries integrations. Tiny-footprint and high-speed execution will also be detailed, using a typical GUI-based application with MicroEJ.

The e(fx)clipse e(f)xperience

Last year, we took on a project to replace an aging web application with a new and improved rich client. Since a modern UI was one of the requirements, we opted to use JavaFX despite the fact that this was new technology for the developers on the team. We also wanted to use an application framework with which the developers were familiar: Eclipse e4. Enter e(fx)clipse...

APP4MC - support for embedded multicore

The new Eclipse project APP4MC provides an open source tool platform for embedded multi- and many-core systems. It is intended as a de-facto standard to exchange timing information and to integrate tools for all major design steps. The initial codebase of APP4MC is the result of the publicly funded projects AMALTHEA and AMALTHEA4public (see:

The talk will include a description and demo of the current tool platform, the application in the automotive industry and the new challenges of embedded many-core systems.

Building Smart Grids with Eclipse IoT Technology: Electrical Substation Automation Revisited

Ten years ago I was working on two separate projects for building SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Systems for monitoring and controlling of electrical substations. The first system was based on a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) as a RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) in the substation and a commercially available SCADA in the remote monitoring and controlling center. The second system had a custom controller as a RTU and a custom build SCADA System.

openMDM5: From a fat client to a scalable, omni-channel architecture

The handling of measured data goes way beyond simple data storage and retrieval. A measured data management system must provide reliable long-term archival, including provenance, and efficient search mechanisms while ensuring proper access restriction across different teams, departments, and even companies. However, the required functionality widely differs between these parties.

openETCS - Eclipse in the Rail Domain

Eclipse is used in many domains, and the rail domain is the latest addition. The ITEA2 project openETCS was launched in 2012 and aims to provide an Eclipse-based tool for developing the on-board controllers for trains (amongst other things). The main objective of the project is to improve interoperability of equipment from various manufacturers, and to ensure long-term support of tools and system model.
