To manage the complex engineering information for real-time systems, the system under development may be modelled in a high-level architecture description language. This high-level information provides a basis for deployment space exploration as it can be used to generate a low-level implementation. During this deployment mapping many platform-dependent(More)
—During the design and deployment of increasingly complex distributed embedded systems, engineers are challenged by a plethora of design choices. This often results in infeasible or sub-optimal solutions. In industry and academia, general and domain-specific optimization techniques are developed to explore the tradeoffs within these design spaces, though(More)
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is an open and standardized automotive software architecture, jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers and tool developers. Its design is a direct consequence of the increasingly important role software plays in vehicles. As design choices during the software deployment phase may have a large(More)
A designer often has to evaluate alternative designs during the development of a system. A multitude of Design-Space Exploration (DSE) techniques exist in the literature. Integration of these techniques into the modelling paradigm is needed when a model-driven engineering approach is used for designing systems. To a greater or lesser extent, the integration(More)
