DESERVE aims at designing and developing a Tool Platform for embedded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to exploit the benefits of cross-domain software reuse, standardised interfaces, and easy and safety-compliant integration of heterogeneous modules to cope with the expected increase of functions complexity and the impellent need of cost reduction.

The DESERVE Platform will provide the environment for ADAS design, development and pre-validation and even pre-certification of software and hardware modules to be integrated in ADAS applications. Safety critical requirements will be considered in the design and systems development making integrated, trusted, interoperable tools and tool-chains available.


The main objectives include designing and building an ARTEMIS Tool Platform which will be based on the standardization of the interfaces, software reuse, development of common non-competitive software modules, and easy and safety compliant integration of standardized hardware or software from different suppliers. It will also achieve to build an innovation ecosystem for European leadership in ADAS embedded systems, based on the automotive R&D actors, with possible applications in other industrial domains.

The DESERVE key innovation aspects are:

  • A standard platform for development of a new generation of ADAS
  • Natural active support as the standard intervention
  • Vehicle-Driver sharing control
  • Actual deployment of model-based approach including holistical driver – vehicle– scenario
  • Easy extension towards cooperative systems
  • Flexibility at sensors/actuators/vehicles/architecture/HMI levels
  • High reliability and Fail Safe
  • Low cost via SW reuse and sharing of HW (i.e. standard components and interfaces)
  • Decision support on heterogeneous system-on-chip-architectures (cost modelling on basic building blocks for next generation implementations)
  • Virtual testing of the applications


  • Implementation of requirements and specification for a common software platform for the selected embedded automotive modules
  • Design of development tools and development of software of the main components
  • Definition of HMI concept and of driver model
  • The design of the functionalities of the four prototypes (two passenger cars, two heavy good vehicles) is the major on-going work
