This book describes model-based development of adaptive embedded systems, which enable improved functionality using the same resources. The techniques presented facilitate design from a higher level of abstraction, focusing on the problem domain rather than on the solution domain, thereby increasing development efficiency. Models are used to capture system specifications and to implement (manually or automatically) system functionality. The authors demonstrate the real impact of adaptivity on engineering of embedded systems by providing several industrial examples of the models used in the development of adaptive embedded systems.
Discusses development of adaptive embedded systems both from an architectural and methodological point of view
Includes state-of-the art information on system architecture, software architecture, system design, and adaptive control
Demonstrates how system modeling can facilitate the development of adaptive embedded systems
Validates methods described using real examples from industry
