Raising Abstraction in Timing Analysis for Vehicular Embedded Systems through Model-Driven Engineering


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


Software Technologies: Applications and Foundations


The complexity of vehicular embedded systems is continuously increasing and this can negatively a ect their development cost and time to market. One way to alleviate these issues is to anticipate analysis of system properties at design time for early architectural re- nements. In this paper, we present a licentiate work which aims at contributing to this e ort. In particular, considering the importance of timing constraints typical of vehicular embedded systems, we leverage Model-Driven Engineering for realizing an automatic approach which allows the developer to perform timing analysis on design models, without having to manually specify timing elements. The proposed approach, starting from a high-level model of the vehicular embedded application, generates a set of candidate models enriched with timing elements in a semi-automatic manner. Timing analysis is run on the generated models and, based on its results, the approach supports the selection of the best candidate model for a speci c, non-empty, set of timing constraints
