Investigating Techniques to Model Real-Time Network Communication for the Industrial Component Model

Publication Type:

Journal article


Information-An International Interdisciplinary Journal

We investigate several techniques to provide model- and component-based support for real-time network communication in the industrial component model, the Rubus Component Model (RCM). RCM is used for the development of software for real-time embedded systems in the automotive domain. We select and introduce new components in RCM that will support state-of-the-practice development of Distributed Real-time Embedded (DRE) systems. We also show the applicability of our approach by modeling the automotive distributed real-time application, i.e., steer-by-wire system.
