Towards Translation of Timing Constraints during Vehicular Embedded Systems Development


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


Component-Based Software Engineering and Software Architecture


In the vehicular industry, different models are used at various abstraction levels and phases during the development of embedded real-time systems. Among other artifacts, timing requirements and specified timing constraints should be unambiguously translated among these models at various abstraction levels. In this context, we aim to provide unambiguous translation of timing constraints among various models, methodologies and languages for vehicular embedded real-time systems. This allows the holistic timing analysis to be performed not only at the implementation level but also at higher abstraction levels. As a first step, we propose translation of timing constraints, that are specified at higher abstraction levels using the Timing Augmented Description Language (TADL2), to an industrial model the Rubus Component Model.
