    Demonstration of xLuna on an Autonomous Rover - European Space Agency

    The xLuna project aims at extending an existing free/open-source kernel making it fit for use in on-board space applications, both for payloads and avionics. The rationale behind xLuna is to supply the European Space industry with a reliable Linux based kernel that can be used for both payload and avionics applications. It will include features such as standard programming interfaces (e.g. POSIX), co-existence of real and non real time tasks, and context isolation.

    The goal of this project is to test and demonstrate the xLuna system in a real scenario.

    Main tasks:

    -Development and specification of performance tests.


    Primary technologies and tools: RTEMS, Snapgear, Leon2, C, Python.



    Phileas – Guidance Control System - APTS

    Phileas is a vehicle concept developed by APTS. The purpose of the guidance control system (GCS) is to control the vehicle motion in semi-automatic mode. It performs precision docking on the raised platforms and automatic steering on routes specifically prepared for this purpose. In these routes, a trail of magnetic reference markers has been laid in the road surface. Automatic steering and precision docking makes it possible to stop with a constant minimal distance between the door thresholds and the platform edge. The result is a flush step alignment enabling passengers to quickly enter and exit the bus, thus limiting stop times and keeping the average speed as high as possible. Critical Software has been working alongside APTS in the Guidance Control System software. The GCSW is an high integrity software and has to respect the demanding safety standards applicable to railways solutions of this kind. High software SIL levels must be achieved.

    Main tasks:

    - CanOpen protocol requirement specification respecting SIL 3;

     -CanOpen architecture specification respecting SIL 3 requirements.

     -J1939 protocol requirement specification;

     -J1939 architecture specification.


    Primary technologies and tools: Doors, SysUML, Green Hills Multi.
