Development Platform
for Safe and Efficient Drive 

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

The DESERVE objectives were:

  • exploiting the benefits of cross-domain software reuse;
  • standardising the automotive software component interfaces;
  • allow easy integration of heterogeneous modules.


ICOOR contributed to the definition of the requirements and specification and it brought its experience in the drawing up of a handbook and guidelines concerning the methods and tools investigated and employed in the DESERVE project.

ICOOR lead the development of the driver model and the specification of integrated HMI needs, and it participated in the design of an innovative integrated HMI. ICOOR worked on the test case functions, and in particular on the warning and automated functions, as well as on the integration and test activities by carrying out lab and road tests, the validation and evaluation. ICOOR was also the leader of dissemination and exploitation activities.

ICOOR members: University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
