Traces is a Research group on Architectures and Compilers for Embedded Systems. It belongs to the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse.

Our current activities focus on the timing analysis of time-critical systems. This includes determining worst-case execution times (WCET) and supporting safe task scheduling.

We develop OTAWA, an open-source toolset dedicated to static WCET analysis.
