We present a framework based on constraint satisfaction that adds self-integration capabilities to component-based embedded systems by identifying correct compositions of the desired components and their dependencies. This not only allows autonomous integration of additional functionality but can also be extended to ensure that the new configuration does(More)
The use of models is becoming increasingly prominent in the development processes for safety and time critical systems (e.g. in automotive or aerospace). However, oftentimes the models of a component, its implementation properties and execution parameters are only loosely coupled. This missing association complicates system maintainability and becomes an(More)
When modelling software components for timing analysis, we typically encounter functional chains of tasks that lead to precedence relations. As these task chains represent a functionally-dependent sequence of operations, in real-time systems, there is usually a requirement for their end-to-end latency. When mapped to software components, functional chains(More)
The IoT will host a large number of co-existing cyber-physical applications. Continuous change, application interference, environment dynamics and uncertainty lead to complex effects which must be controlled to give performance and application guarantees. Application and platform self-configuration and self-awareness are one paradigm to approach this(More)
In this paper we address the issue of change after deployment in safety-critical embedded system applications. Our goal is to substitute lab-based verification with in-field formal analysis to determine whether an update may be safely applied. This is challenging because it requires an automated process able to handle multiple viewpoints such as functional(More)
Self-awareness has been used in many research fields in order to add autonomy to computing systems. In automotive systems, we face several system layers that must be enriched with self-awareness to build truly autonomous vehicles. This includes functional aspects like autonomous driving itself, its integration on the hardware/software platform, and among(More)
Due to increased bandwidth and scalability demands, Ethernet technology is finding its way into recent in-vehicle networks. Tomorrow’s heterogeneous networks will feature legacy buses [e.g. controller area network (CAN) or FlexRay] as well as high-speed Ethernet devices, connected by switches and gateways. As Ethernet offers significantly larger frame sizes(More)
For the development of complex software systems, we often resort to component-based approaches that separate the different concerns, enhance verifiability and reusability, and for which microkernel-based implementations are a good fit to enforce these concepts. Composing such a system of several interacting software components will, however, lead to complex(More)
