Challenges and Objectives

The MYRTUS project aims at unlocking the new living dimension of CPS, embracing the principles of the  EUCloudEdgeIOT Initiative, integrating edge, fog and cloud computing platforms. This integration requires the reinvention of programming languages and tools to orchestrate collaborative distributed and decentralised components. Additionally, components must be augmented with interface contracts covering both functional and non-functional properties. MYRTUS solutions play a crucial role in enabling sustainable computing and trustworthiness in CPS.

MYRTUS / Pillar 1

MYRTUS Reference Infrastructure

MYRTUS reference infrastructure represents the enabler for seamless optimal execution of complex computational workflows across a heterogeneous continuum, in an energy-efficient and trustworthy manner.

Centralized solutions struggle to meet scalable and low latency application needs, and privacy related matters. Edge computing helps solving those latter with proximity, but hardly satisfies intense computing and storage requirements.


MYRTUS defines a reference infrastructure where a diversity of fog-level and edge-level devices converge with the cloud to form a computing continuum capable of addressing the needs of complex and dynamic systems, including CPS with a living dimension.

MIRTO Cognitive Engine

MIRTO Cognitive Engine enables continuous workload/system optimization, strategic to foster a sustainable computing approach, across the continuum.

Cloud, edge and end-devices are currently handled as different isolated silos, preventing an application to be seamlessly deployed and dynamically updated for continuous optimization, strategic to foster a sustainable computing approach, across continuum.


MYRTUS features a 360° dynamic runtime orchestration scheme, embodied within the MIRTO AI-powered cognitive engine, to guarantee high performance and energy efficiency, preserving security and trust.

MYRTUS / Pillar 3


The MYRTUS DPE integrates tools and standard formats, with a strong focus on interfaces and interoperability, facilitating the MYRTUS solutions uptake at large scale.

Read more…


The more a system is heterogeneous, complex, and required to be adaptive, the more it is likely for designers to rely on partially integrated toolchains / methodologies tuned for specific aspects. Frameworks and tools are there, but effective interoperability is still to be reached.


MYRTUS provides a reference design and programming environment for continuum computing systems, featuring interoperable support for cross-layer modelling, threat analysis, design space exploration, application modelling, components synthesis, and code generation.
