Integrating components and systems with Franca

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

Proper handling of interface definitions is key when designing the architecture of large multi-component systems. Model-based tools are needed for transforming interfaces between various languages and formats, specifying the dynamic behavior of interfaces and applying formal checks for verification and validation. Franca is an Eclipse-based open source framework which provides these features and many more.

Franca arose in early 2012 from the work of the international GENIVI consortium ( Meanwhile, it is used also in other domains as well as in some research projects. A demo during the session will provide some insight of how the Car Infotainment community is using Franca to build their in-car navigation and multimedia devices.
