The goal of TIMMO is to establish a standardised infrastructure for the handling of timing for the European automotive market. This requires major industrial players in the field as well as leading European research institutes to participate. Therefore, the TIMMO consortium consists of four groups:

Vehicle manufactures,
System suppliers,
Tool vendors,
Research institutes.

The consortium thus combines the leading industrial partners in Europe both on the manufacturers' and suppliers' side as well as advanced research in the field. The manufacturers and the system suppliers will bring in their knowledge about the industrial development processes and system architectures as well as their requirements and scenarios for the exchange of timing information. This input as well as their active participation in the project will ensure the transferability of the project results into practice. The tool vendors will provide their expertise in architectural modelling, timing analysis, and tool development for real-time system development. The participation of all three groups (vehicle manufacturers, system suppliers, and tool vendors) is a prerequisite for a successful validation. The research institutes will investigate the state-of-the-art and provide their expertise in modelling and analysis of real-time embedded systems. Additionally, they play a vital role in disseminating the project results into the academic and educational world.

The individual partners and their roles given below

Continental Automotive GmbH Besides being the project co-ordinator, Continental Automotive GmbH contributes requirements, scenarios, and architectures as a technical basis of the project from a supplier's point of view.

Audi Electronics
Venture GmbH
Audi Electronics Venture GmbH introduces its knowledge of software-oriented automotive development processes into TIMMO consortium. Its focus will be mainly on the applicability of TIMMO's results to OEM's need for advanced development methodologies with regards to timing aspects.

Volkswagen AG Volkswagen contributes with its expertise in the realization of complex electronic systems with several parties involved which becomes important using AUTOSAR. In this project Volkswagen focuses on a methodology to improve collaboration issues and to have an early prove of feasibility.

Volvo Technology AB Volvo, being an OEM, contributes with their experience in overall modelling and construction of vehicular electronic systems.

DENSO Europe DENSO as a major automotive supplier supplements the development of the TIMMO process definitions and timing augmented description language.

Mentor Graphics Mentor Graphics actively contributes to the definition of the Timing Augmented Language Description (TADL), It brings in its experience from EAST-ADL2 and AUTOSAR

Robert Bosch GmbH Bosch contributes in all WPs in the role of a system supplier having very good experience in realization and development of electronic automotive systems. Main contribution are in the field of industrial requirements, development of methodology and validation of concepts. Furthermore, Bosch acts as leader in WP1.

Siemens AG Siemens focuses on the collaboration issues in the design process between automobile manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers. The results will be part of a methodology for cross-company usage of this TADL description language.

ZF Friedrichshafen AG ZF acts as a supplier for drivetrain and chassis systems and contributes requirements as well as know-how about real time embedded systems and automotive software development. Within the main focus are framework definition, methodology definition and validation.

ETAS GmbH As a partner of the automotive industry ETAS offers a complete spectrum of products and services for the development, manufacturing, and service of automotive industry embedded systems. ETAS brings in its expertise in developing real-time automotive ECU software and contributes to the validator development with its tooling.

Symtavision GmbH Symtavision brings in its expertise in system-level timing, scheduling and performance analysis. Furthermore, Symtavision will extend its SymTA/S scheduling analysis tool suite to support AUTOSAR models and the new TIMMO TADL.

TTTech Computertechnik AG TTTech brings in FlexRay network scheduling and node configuration tools for AUTOSAR systems (TTX-Tools). These tools are extended to integrate into the TIMMO framework, allowing to import and process timing information that is expressed in the TADL.

CEA-LIST CEA LIST provides its expertise on design of modelling languages and facilitates access and understanding of the UML MARTE standard.

Chalmers University of Technology Using their knowledge within the area of dependable computing and scheduling theory, Chalmers will contribute to the formalization and understanding of timing constraints used in the different development stages of TADL.

Paderborn University C-LAB Paderborn University contributes with its expertise in the areas of embedded systems design and verification. It is active in the TADL development and in the definition and implementation of validators. In project management, Paderborn University leads workpackage 4.
