By Fabrice Kordon, Jérôme Hugues, Agusti Canals, Alain Dohet

Because the building of the 1st embedded approach within the Sixties, embedded structures have endured to unfold. they supply a always expanding variety of prone and are a part of our everyday life. the improvement of those structures is a tricky challenge which doesn't but have an international answer. one other trouble is that structures are plunged into the true international, which isn't discrete (as is usually understood in computing), yet has a richness of behaviors which occasionally hinders the formula of simplifying assumptions because of their ordinarily independent nature and so they needs to face most likely unexpected events (incidents, for example), or maybe events that lie open air the preliminary layout assumptions.
Embedded platforms offers the cutting-edge of the improvement of embedded structures and, particularly, concentrates at the modeling and research of those structures through “model-driven engineering”, (MDE2): SysML, UML/MARTE and AADL. A case examine (based on a pacemaker) is gifted which permits the reader to monitor how different features of a method are addressed utilizing the various ways. All 3 platforms are very important in that they supply the reader with a world view in their probabilities and display the contributions of every strategy within the assorted phases of the software program lifecycle. Chapters devoted to studying the specification and code iteration also are awarded.

Example text

The main reason for this is the need to elaborate programs that have a small memory footprint because they are usually deployed on very compact architectures1. More costly development techniques have been gradually created. These development techniques are mainly based on an in-depth assessment of the requirements, intensive tests as well as very strict development procedures, which ensure a safety standard satisfying the expectations of the general public. However, these systems that often accomplished critical missions frequently involved very expensive developing strategies, thereby being limited to a specific usage such as space travel, aeronautics, nuclear use and railroad transportation.

Previously only familiar with SysML and MARTE through presentation and tutorial, I expanded and sharpened my understanding of their adaptability to each user’s (company’s) needs. From UML, SysML and MARTE come notations that neither prescribe nor proscribe design methods or tools. The power of defining one’s own semantics comes at the cost of defining one’s own semantics. In the domain of embedded electronic control systems using software, AADL reigns supreme. I serve on SAE International AS-2C standard subcommittee that issues the AADL standard and its annex documents, so please understand my enthusiasm in the context of a true believer.

The overview diagram allows us to show a concatenation of diagrams in the shape of an algorithm that is similar to the activity diagram. However, the activities and actions are in themselves diagrams. This gives us better readability throughout the specification of complex concatenations. The timing diagram (derived from electronic engineering) facilitates the modeling of behaviors that are sequenced by time events (for instance, the time constraints between different states of several objects).
