Abstract [en]

Software component technologies have not yet been generally accepted by embedded-systems industries. In order to better understand why this is the case, we present a set of requirements, based on industrial needs, that are deemed decisive for introducing a component technology. The requirements we present can be used to evaluate existing component technologies before introducing them in an industrial context. They can also be used to guide modifications and/or extensions to component technologies, to make them better suited for industrial deployment. One of our findings is that a major source of requirements is non-technical in its nature. For a component technology to become a viable solution in an industrial context, its impact on the overall development process needs to be addressed. This includes issues like component life-cycle management, and support for the ability to gradually migrate into the new technology.

Abstract [sv]

Control-systems for heavy vehicles have advanced from an area where Industrial Requirements on Component Technologies for Embedded Systemsmainly mechanic and hydraulic solutions were used, to a highly computerised domain using distributed embedded real-time computer systems. To cope with the increasing level of end-customer demands on advanced features and functions in future vehicle systems, sophisticated development techniques are needed. The development techniques must support software in numerous configurations and facilitate development of systems with requirements on advanced functionality, timeliness, and safety-criticality. In order to meet these requirements, we propose the use of component-based software engineering. However, the software component-technologies available on the market have not yet been generally accepted by the vehicular industry. In order to better understand why this is the case, we have conduced a survey - identifying the industrial requirements that are deemed decisive for introducing a component technology. We have used these requirements to evaluate a number of existing component technologies, and one of our conclusions is that none of the studied technologies is a perfect match for the industrial requirements. In addition, we have implemented and evaluated the novel component model SaveCCM, which has been designed for safety-critical automotive applications. Our evaluation indicates that SaveCCM is a promising technology which has the potential to fulfil the industrial requirements. However, tools are still immature and incomplete. In the final part of this work, we propose the use of monitored software components, as a general approach for engineering of embedded systems. In our approach, a component's execution is continuously monitored and experience regarding the behaviour is accumulated. As more and more experience is collected the confidence in the component grows.
