European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space 2015

This page captures the students who make proposals as well as those who work on projects for RTEMS as part of ESA SOCIS 2015.

Students' Proposals

Start filling in this table for yourself as soon as possible and update as needed.

Student Completed Hello IRC Handle Proposal Title Google Docs URL
NAME Yes or No nick on #rtems Project Title Link to Google Docs for proposal (shared with mentors)
Hermann Felbinger Yes hermann_19829 Improve Code Coverage Analysis Meeting Aviation and Automotive Standards Proposal
Saeed Ehteshamifar Yes salpha RTEMS Fault tolerance: Get a fault injection tool to work with RTEMS Proposal

The columns are to be filled in as follows:

  • The Student column is for your name.
  • The Completed Hello column lets us all know whether or not you completed the require Hello World project. Based upon our experience, students who have successfully compiled and run an RTEMS application have a MUCH MUCH higher chance of success on the proposed project.
  • The IRC Handle column is your handle on IRC. RTEMS folks hang out in #rtems on
  • The Proposal Title should be self-explanatory.
  • The Google Docs URL is your proposal in Google Docs that can be reviewed and commented on by mentors. The proposal template should be copied and used as a baseline. This can be shared with mentors for review. Mentors can insert comments for you.

WARNING: The Google Docs version of the proposal is a WORKING copy. You MUST submit the official and final proposal using the Google Melange site. If you do not submit the final proposal via the Google Melange site, you cannot be considered

Students' Summer of Code Tracking Table

Students whose GSoC project is accepted by RTEMS shall fill in a slot with their information in the following table, which helps to centralize SoC Project Management.

Student IRC Handle Project Link Repository Link Blog
NAME nick on #rtems Link to Project Wiki page Link to project's public Github repository Link to your development blog
Hermann Felbinger hermann_19829 Wiki GitHub Blog
Saeed Ehteshamifar salpha TBD GitHub Blog

The columns are to be filled in as follows:

  • The Student column is for your name.
  • The IRC Handle column is your handle on IRC. RTEMS folks hang out in #rtems on
  • The Project Link is a link to the Wiki page for your project.
  • The Repository Link is a link to the github repository for your project.
  • The Blog is a link to your blog with entries about your project. It should be updated regularly during the summer.

Student Status Updates

Each student has a section below for putting in notes from the weekly IRC meetings.


  • May 19: Added the Status Updates page, and created this subsection as an example. For next week, I will talk to any students who missed the meeting and follow-up on any problems that were identified.


  • May 19: Was notified that I am selected to be part of SOCIS 2015. Gedare asked me to provide some links to coverage reports after the release of RTEMS 4.11.
  • May 26: Unfortunately missed the meeting. Analyzed the QEMU emulator capabilities to check which BSPs are supported. To get familiar with the tools I am working on building the tool set for LEON2 CPU which should work with the QEMU Sparc32 emulator. To execute the test cases and run a coverage analysis I have to define a proper config file for covoar which currently only exists for pc386 BSP.


  • May 19: Not yet admitted.
  • May 26: Admitted. Updated this page to add an entry for my proposal. Built RTEMS build tools via RSB.
  • Jun 02: Built RTEMS 4.11, gone through GRINDER, found the abstraction layer to modify (and re-implement) in order to invoke Qemu (running RTEMS). Made a repository and a blog and put the links above.
