RT-DESCRIBE: Self-describing components for self-adaptive distributed embedded systems
In this paper the Fraunhofer ESK presents in cooperation with CEA LIST a novel integrated model-driven methodology for developing selfadaptive distributed embedded systems. Software components of the design model are enriched with self-descriptions which provide information at runtime that is necessary for adaptation decisions. Therefore, a new self-x profile and the tool-chain with the essential model transformations are introduced. The iterative development process, including early feedback through an integrated simulation framework, enables an early refinement of the self-adaptive system.
