Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu2 (16)ARTEMIS• The ARTEMIS technology platform brings together actors fromindustry, small and medium-sized enterprises, universities, researchcentres and European public authorities in the field of EmbeddedSystems.• One of its core objectives is to define a common strategic researchagenda that will become a reference in its own domain and attractcommitment of all stakeholders in the sector.• ARTEMIS will help to create the necessary critical mass and coordinateresearch efforts and initiatives across Europe in order toestablish and implement a coherent and integrated Europeanresearch and development

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu4 (16)Embedded Systems are Everywhere• Embedded Systems are specialised computers used in everywhere.• They are increasingly becoming an integral and often invisiblecomponent of the world around us.• Embedded Systems add computing and communication capability toeveryday products, equipping them with new, exciting functions andalso add new value to traditional goods.• Already, 90% of computing devices are in Embedded Systems, andwith current growth rates the number of embedded programmablecomponents will reach 16 billion by 2010 (nearly 3 embeddeddevices per person on earth) and over 40 billion worldwide by 2020.• But as the pervasiveness of embedded devices increases, so do thechallenges in technology, interoperability, standardization,methodology, safety, and security.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu5 (16)Embedded Systems Matter in Europe• Embedded Systems (ES) are an important enabler of productdifferentiation and user friendliness. ES take on the challenges ofdiversity and decentralization in Europe and turn it into a strength.• While other economies in the world are leading in the primary ITsector, Europe has to exploit its strength in the ES sectors.• In these sectors, safety and reliability are critical and as such are acrucial part of the strategic research agenda for this domain.• ES will make possible the emergence of completely new societyscaleapplications, affecting cities, regions or entire continents inareas such as energy, environment, or social well-being.• Europe needs to keep a leadership position, as the development ofthese sectors not only improves our economic strength but alsodirectly affects the quality of life of our society

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu6 (16)Embedded Systems are Drivers of theEuropean Economy (1/2)• Intelligent functions embedded in components and devices will be akey factor in revolutionising industrial production processes, fromdesign to manufacturing and distribution.• These technologies add intelligence to the control processes inmanufacturing shop floors and improve the logistic and distributionchains.• The possibility to deliver systems with new functionality or improvedquality within a competitive time frame has ensured substantialmarket shares for the European economy. In this way, EmbeddedSystems directly impact on European competitiveness.• Another key factor is the increase of the share of the value ofembedded electronics components in the value of the final product.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu7 (16)Embedded Systems are Drivers of theEuropean Economy (2/2)• In the next five years, the share of the value of embeddedelectronics components is expected to reach significant percentagesin areas such as Industrial Automation (22%), Telecommunications(37%), Consumer Electronics and Intelligent Homes (41%) andHealth/Medical Equipment (33%). Moreover, the value added to thefinal product by embedded software is often orders of magnitudehigher than the cost of the embedded devices themselves.• The impact of this increase can be best illustrated by the automotivesector. Given that 20% of the value of each car today is due toembedded electronics and that this is expected to increase to anaverage of 35-40% by 2015, more than 600.000 new jobs will becreated in Europe in automotive ES alone.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu8 (16)Technology for Small and Large Industry• The design and production of ES has become a major driver for theEuropean IT industry. It has also generated eco-systems of SME,large industry actors, and research organisations.• The ARTEMIS SRA for Embedded Systems will look to theseproduction chains and take the whole innovation environment intoconsideration. The ARTEMIS agenda will support methods, tools anddevices for timely development of reliable and safe products.• SMEs are a natural and important constituency in this environmentthat will exploit increased co-operation in research for ESarchitectures, design, or standards and create new marketopportunities for European suppliers.• These novel opportunities will in turn bring new challenges, e.g. forimproved interoperability of ES, for systems tools, designmethodology, IPR protection, and certification.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu9 (16)Technology Challenges and EconomicOpportunities (1/2)• Cost, security, interoperability, reliability, and productivity are only afew of the challenges threatening European competitiveness in EStoday. Europe needs to address these challenges in a co-ordinatedand focused way.• ARTEMIS will establish an environment supportive of innovation inwhich both co-operation and competition in technologicaldevelopment are enhanced.• It will stimulate the emergence of a new supply industry forcomponents, tools and design methodologies. It will focus researchand development efforts, thus avoiding fragmentation and makingmore effective use of resources, and it will facilitate the take-up ofresults.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu10 (16)Technology Challenges and EconomicOpportunities (2/2)• Improvements in ES development time and reliability through theuse of tools will create a significant competitive advantage forEuropean industry.• European ES tool makers today are often small and medium sizedenterprises that are closely linked with both academic researchcentres and with large industry players.• Improved interoperability, reliability, and security at lower costs andhigher productivity will strengthen SME’s in European value chainsand at the same time help to secure and create jobs at industrylevel in the EU.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu11 (16)ARTEMIS Application Domains• The ARTEMIS approach consists of removing barriers betweenapplication sectors, stimulating creativity and yielding multi-domainreusable results.• The application contexts include Industrial Systems, i.e. large,complex and safety critical systems in areas such as automotive,aerospace, manufacturing, and specific growth areas such asbiomedical systems.• Nomadic Environments refers to enabling devices such as PDA’s andon-body systems to communicate in changing and mobileenvironments that offer users access to information and serviceswhile on the move.• Private Spaces includes homes, cars and offices for improvedenjoyment, comfort, well-being and safety.• Finally, Public Infrastructure refers to major infrastructure such asairports, cities, and highways that embrace large scale deploymentof systems and services.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu12 (16)Objectives and Priorities (1/2)• Primary research objectives of the ARTEMIS SRA are novel technicalsolutions to address the extreme complexity of new systems.• Research focused on industrial priorities will cover reference designsand architectures, seamless connectivity, middleware, designmethods, implementation processes and tools.• This will be complemented by foundational science and technologyresearch that will offer new solutions with a scientifically rigorousbasis to the technical barriers that hinder progress towards thegoals in the applications context.• The results will be embodied in the methods and tools of ARTEMISso that the artefacts produced with them will be guaranteed to havethe required properties.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu13 (16)Objectives and Priorities (2/2)• Foundational science and technology research in ARTEMIS willgenerate new solutions to recognized problems and will explore the“unknown” so that a steady flow of innovative ideas in the field ofnovel Embedded Systems is maintained.• ARTEMIS not only targets research projects, but also optimizing theinnovation environment for Embedded Technologies.• Overcoming fragmentation - in markets and RTD policies - will helpin the acceleration of product development, but also in developingstandards and regulations, e.g. in certification and safety.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu14 (16)Making it Happen (1/2)• The common pan-European strategic research agenda is a tool forrealizing the industry driven and long-term vision of the ARTEMIStechnology platform. It will support a joint financing policy andimpact assessment and assist in optimally allocating programmesand resources to different technology and policy challenges.• It will also help monitor alignment and co-ordination of researchpolicies in Europe such as the EU Framework programme, nationaland regional research programmes and a Joint Technology Initiativein the field of Embedded Systems.• ARTEMIS supports the creation of a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI)as a Public-Private Partnership to create the necessary critical massrequired for implementing selected parts of the strategic researchagenda. Its core should be an industry-driven programme forcollaborative RTD that focuses on the downstream part of the SRA.

Ennakkotiedote 29.4.2006 sivu15 (16)Making it Happen (2/2)• The European Commission, Member States and Industry will createa joint strategy for trans-national funding of Embedded Systemsresearch and development. ARTEMIS has established a governanceand integration framework where industry, research organisationsand public authorities across the EU join forces.• The strategic research agenda is an important tool in co-ordinatingjoint efforts and optimally implementing the JTI. Rules ofprocedures are designed to ensure openness, fairness, andtransparency to all the stakeholders in the field.• Now is the time to pull European forces together in order tomaintain leadership in one of the most dynamic, pervasive,fascinating and promising areas of information technology:Embedded Systems.
