identification of the requirements of embedded high-performance computing for industrial time critical environments

Objectives and Approach

CLEOPATRA represents a cluster of applications having in common the introduction of HPC into industrial real-time systems. The high performance computing hardware and software appears as an embedded system rather than a stand-alone marketable product.

A main project deliverable will be a set of procedures to aid the efficient transfer of algorithmic know-how into embedded real-time HPC parallel systems. This will capture the experience gained by the whole consortium and will include the issues involved in third-party hardware and software procurement.

The selected application demonstrators to be developed represent next generation products for well established running business:

The results achieved in the HAMLET (6290) and ARVISA (5225) projects provide the basis for CLEOPATRA.
