Model-Based Engineering (MBE) aims at increasing the effectiveness of engineering by using models as key artifacts in the development process. While empirical studies on the use and the effects of MBE in industry exist, there is only little work targeting the embedded systems domain. We contribute to the body of knowledge with a study on the use and the(More)
Model-based engineering (MBE) aims at increasing the effectiveness of engineering by using models as important artifacts in the development process. While empirical studies on the use and the effects of MBE in industry exist, only few of them target the embedded systems domain. We contribute to the body of knowledge with an empirical study on the use and(More)
Software testing is an essential means of evaluating software quality. System and acceptance tests aim to validate a system's conformance to its requirements on a high level of system abstraction. Therefore, they are generally performed by executing end-user scenarios through the system's graphical user interface (GUI). However, to the authors' best(More)
In model-driven software engineering, model transformations are used for the specification of model changes. Similar to programs also model transformations can exhibit bad smells which indicate possible weaknesses. In this paper, we address bad smells which can negatively affect the performance of the application of model transformations, particularly,(More)
3D data collected by a laser scanner has great potential for robotic applications. Exact geometrical models of the environment surrounding the robot can be created from these point clouds. But, before creating any model, the 3D point cloud has to be segmented and depending on the size and quality of the point cloud, this can be a very challenging task. This(More)
In many areas, such as automotive, healthcare, or production, we find softwareintensive systems with complex real-time requirements. To efficiently ensure the quality of these systems, engineers require automated tools for the validation of the requirements throughout the development. This, however, requires that the requirements are specified in an(More)

Model-driven software engineering in industrial practice has been the focus of different empirical studies and experience reports. Particularly, positive effects of model-driven software engineering have been reported in the domain of embedded and safety-critical systems. We report in this paper on the experiences of the openETCS European research project(More)
The selection of a suitable modelling language influences the success of software modelling. Several experiments comparing the comprehensibility of graphical modelling languages have been published. However, no published study comparing the comprehensibility of functional requirements modelled in different graphical modelling languages exists. This paper(More)
Motivated by their success in software development, companies implement agile methods and their practices increasingly for software-intense, large products, such as cars, telecommunication infrastructure, and embedded systems. Such systems are usually subject to safety and regulative concerns as well as different development cycles of hardware and software.(More)
