Model Based CAE Technology for the Development of Automotive Embedded Distributed Control System 2005-01-3133
Automotive embedded DCS is widely used to solve automotive control problems. This paper presents a model-driven development technology for such systems. Models of automotive embedded DCS are built up strictly complying with the four-layer-model architecture, which is presented by Model-Driven Architecture (MDA). Three kinds of models are used to describe the protocol data structure, the algorithm process and visualization aspects of automotive embedded DCS. Corresponding XML databases are created based upon these models. As a single data source, these databases play key roles in further development phases, including generating the protocol specification, MC&D systems and embedded programming, etc. Some demonstrative applications are presented in this paper.
