Eclipse is an open development platform and application framework for building software. VTT's first contribution to the Eclipse community is a tool designed for managing a software architectural knowledge base.
Eclipse represents part of the implementation process for VTT's technology policy. In order to express VTT's support to the Eclipse community, VTT has joined the Eclipse Foundation as an associate member.
VTT has recently contributed to the Eclipse ecosystem by developing a tool called "Stylebase for Eclipse". The tool provides assistance for software architects and designers. It has been implemented as an Eclipse extension and published under the GNU General Public License, the most well-known open source software license.
Eclipse is known as the most popular open source development environment and a universal platform for tool integration. Eclipse forms an independent open eco-system around royalty-free technology. The Eclipse community has developed new features that have helped evolve the platform towards integrating not only tools but also applications and services. New features also make Eclipse a strong force in the embedded market and expands the community even further internationally. Today, Eclipse is more than "just" a development environment, it has become a powerful platform that serves the entire application life cycle.
The Eclipse Foundation is a non-profit entity formed to advance the creation, evolution, promotion, and support of Eclipse. It has a full-time management organization that works with commercial developers and consumers, academic and research institutions, standards bodies, tool interoperability groups, and individual developers. The foundation co-ordinates nine open source projects with more than 50 sub-projects.
Stylebase is a re-use repository of software architectural models and patterns. It is an important part of the quality-driven software architecture design and analysis methodology. Stylebase for Eclipse is a tool for browsing and maintaining the stylebase. It aims to improve the quality of software products by helping architects and designers in selecting models that best provide the desired quality goals.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
