Project: Automatic Control in Distributed Applications (AIDA 2)


In the AIDA2 project the goals are to provide a modelling framework, a prototype tool-set and an accompanying method to support the design of machine control systems that are increasingly implemented in embedded distributed computer systems.



An industrial reference group for AIDA and PICADOR has been formed. The following companies are participants: Combitech, Adtranz, Arcticus systems. Volvo components (Volvo CE) and Scania.
