Press Release: Open Source: Using ERNEST, developers can pinpoint flaws in the early stages of software design

Press Release, August 19, 2015

To give as many developers as possible the opportunity to validate their software, Fraunhofer ESK is making the basic version of its ERNEST framework, which is designed to examine the runtime performance of model-based software, available via open source. Developers who download the framework from the GitHub platform can use it for free, plus they have full access to the source code. That allows them to adapt the framework to their own requirements. ERNEST was created specifically for developers who design model-based software, such as for vehicle systems. The ESK framework helps developers identify flaws in non-functional aspects of the software architecture, such as runtime performance, during the early stages of design, resulting in both time and cost savings.


Poster: Communication Technologies for Smart Grid and Smart Market

Monitor, control and transmit data. Smart grids and smart energy markets are only possible with the help of communication technologies. The question is, what must these technologies be capable of in order to support the variety of applications and which ones are best suited? Engineers at Fraunhofer ESK have created a poster that depicts the requirements and recommended technologies.
