The vision of the SDK4ED (Software Development ToolKit forEnergy Optimization and Technical Debt Elimination) project is to minimize the costs, the development time and the complexity of low-energy software development processes by providing tools for automatic optimization of multiple quality requirements.
Access to SDK4ED has now been distributed internally at CNet to CheckHealth, where the SDK4ED tools provide a technical solution to ensure the required quality demands as specified in current tenders for medical device systems in which CheckHealth participates. The CNet group of companies will use SDK4ED tools to ensure product quality, efficient energy usage and management of design decisions. With a growing number of products and large code base, we believe SDK4ED can provide real benefits to our software development lifecycle.
SDK4ED is developing tools and methods to minimize the cost, the development time and the complexity of low-energy software development processes. The project will provide tools for automatic optimization of multiple quality requirements, such as technical debt, energy efficiency, dependability and performance in Internet of Things applications.
SDK4ED was assessed by a group of independent experts which found the project has made excellent progress during its first 18 month and gave the project green light for the second project phase.
Technical debt in embedded networked products like Internet of Things is becoming an increasingly complex issue since products often contains both software and hardware, technology is rapidly developing with new software versions released frequently. Our new project SDK4ED intends to tackle these issues by providing tools for automatic optimization of technical debt, energy efficiency, dependability and performance in IoT products.
This project is partially funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 780572.
