We present a toolchain to model and automatically generate executable simulation code for networked embedded systems applications. First, we provide a UML extension for modeling the network in distributed embedded systems. Second, we present a toolchain to automatically translate the UML model into an intermediate description and then to SystemC executable code. Finally, the developed simulation framework is based on the state-of-the-art network simulator named SCNSL which also provides a comprehensive library of well-tested simulation models for communication networks. The framework is explained on two different case studies related to wired/wireless network applications, one for home automation and the other for agriculture applications.Key words: UML, SystemC, Embedded systems, Network modeling, Simulation

Abstract

We present a toolchain to model and automatically generate executable simulation code for networked embedded systems applications. First, we provide a UML extension for modeling the network in distributed embedded systems. Second, we present a toolchain to automatically translate the UML model into an intermediate description and then to SystemC executable code. Finally, the developed simulation framework is based on the state-of-the-art network simulator named SCNSL which also provides a comprehensive library of well-tested simulation models for communication networks. The framework is explained on two different case studies related to wired/wireless network applications, one for home automation and the other for agriculture applications.Key words: UML, SystemC, Embedded systems, Network modeling, Simulation
