End-to-end Timing Model Extraction from TSN-Aware Distributed Vehicle Software


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


Euromicro Conference Series on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications


Timing requirements in predictable distributed embedded software systems can be verified by performing end- to-end timing analysis. To perform such an analysis, end-to-end timing information should be extracted form the Software Architectures (SWA) of these systems. In this paper, we first present a comprehensive end-to-end timing model of distributed embedded software systems that use Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) for network communication. This is the first timing model that captures comprehensive timing information of TSN as part of the end-to-end timing model. We then present a systematic automated method to extract the end-to-end timing model from the SWA of distributed embedded systems. As a proof of concept, we implement the timing model and extraction method in an industrial component model, namely the Rubus Component Model (RCM), and in its tool chain. We evaluate the proposed method and demonstrate its usability on an industrial use-case from the vehicular domain.
