DPAC - Dependable Platforms for Autonomous systems and Control

The DPAC profile establishes a leading research profile targeting dependable platforms for autonomous systems and control, hosted at Mälardalen University in the Embedded Systems (ES) research environment. This will be accomplished through close collaboration and interaction between ES research groups and the participating industrial companies. DPAC will leverage our solid track record of close cooperation to conduct excellent research, knowledge transfer, and support commercialization with industrial partners. DPAC shall create synergy effects between the partners and a significant increase in coproduction is to be expected.

The research is organized around three main research areas:

  • Predictability and dependability in parallel architecture
  • Autonomous systems and control
  • Design methodologies

DPAC brings a wide industrial participation ranging from small-medium enterprises to large multinational corporations:
