This book offers readers broad coverage of techniques to model, verify and validate the behavior and performance of complex distributed embedded systems. The authors attempt to bridge the gap between the three disciplines of model-based design, real-time analysis and model-driven development, for a better understanding of the ways in which new development flows can be constructed, going from system-level modeling to the correct and predictable generation of a distributed implementation, leveraging current and future research results.
Describes integration of heterogeneous models
Discusses synthesis of task model implementations and code implementations
Compares model-based design vs. model-driven approaches
Explains how to enforce correctness by construction in the functional and time domains
