The idea of the statistical study is born some years ago in informal discussions between Adriana Gogonel, PhD in statistics and Liliana Cucu-Grosjean, Inria researcher. The similarity of weather forecasting problems treated by Adriana in her thesis and estimating the execution times of a program on a processor (Liliana’s research topic) was not obvious at first.
The discussions motivate the beginning of a more formal collaboration that started in 2012 at Inria, having the purpose of creating a tool for the estimation of the worst case execution time of the programs running on a processor.
6 years and two patents later we decide to create this startup that transfers the technology towards the industry, having for ambition to become the leader in the analyze of temporal behavior of the programs in the embedded systems area.
Our solution is a measurement based one making it appropriate either for the programs for which the user has acces to the code as well as for blackbox programs.
