HERCULES project provides the required technological infrastructure to obtain an order-of-magnitude improvement in the cost and power consumption of next generation real-time applications. It offers an integrated framework to allow achieving predictable performance on top of cutting-edge heterogeneous CTOS multi-core platforms, implementing real-time scheduling techniques and execution models.

Thus, HERCULES contributes to the Alliance in High-Performance Real-time Architectures for Low-Power Embedded Systems.
