The INTERESTED Project

INTERESTED stands for INTER-operable Embedded Systems Tool chain for Enhanced rapid Design.

The  INTERESTED project, funded under the 7th Framework Programme, achieved its goals in terms of significantly reducing the cost and improving the quality and time-to-market of safety-critical embedded systems.

The INTERESTED project has created an integrated and open reference tool chain for complex safety and mission-critical embedded systems and software development that is not only highly dependable, safe and efficient but also reduces design and deployment costs by up to 50%. The INTERESTED reference tool chain successfully assimilates tools from leading European embedded tool vendors into three distinct design domains - system and software design, networking and execution platform, and timing and code analysis - covering the full spectrum of embedded systems and software development.

The European embedded tool vendors who participated in the INTERESTED consortium included AbsInt Angewandte Informatik (Germany), Atego (UK), Commissariat
