Distributed Modeling and Framework for Collaborative Embedded System Design
XuanFang Zha, Ram D. Sriram
In this paper, we develop distributed design models and framework for collaborative embedded system design. Based on the component-based approach, a unified design-with-modules scheme is proposed to model the embedded system design process and a web-based distributed module modeling and evaluation (WebDMME) framework is developed as a collaborative cyber-infrastructure to support distributed network-centric embedded system design. The framework intends to link distributed, heterogeneous hardware/software (HW/SW) design models and tools and assist designers in evaluating design alternatives, visualizing trade-offs, finding optimal solutions, and making decisions on the web. It also enables designers to build integrated design models using both the local and distributed resources (e.g., local and distributed HW/SW modules) and to cooperate by exchanging services. The client (browser) / knowledge server architecture allows embedded system design models to be published and connected over the web to form an integrated intelligent models/modules network. Finally, as an illustration, a model for modular microrobotic systems design is developed.
