The vision of SDK4ED is to minimize the cost, the development time and the complexity of low-energy software development processes, by providing tools for automatic optimization of multiple quality requirements, such as technical debt, energy efficiency, dependability and performance. SDK4ED will develop methods and accompanying software tools capable of parsing software artefacts, (source code, design models, test cases, etc.) and analyzing these items from the perspective of technical debt liability, considering the targeted hardware platform and the provided quality requirements. The corresponding tools will provide reports with deficiencies, ranked by importance and urgency to be resolved, considering the past history of changes of these items and the probability of future maintenance. Beyond the identification of design flaws, energy monitors and tools for the identification of security vulnerabilities will feed the technical debt optimization process.
Neurasmus B.V. joins the project as an application provider, providing embedded software applications for secure implantable devices related to the SINS research theme.
