Abstract [en]

The increasing complexity of real-time embedded systems requires appropriate methods and techniques to support the development including the specification and analysis of different architectural aspects. A large number of architectural description languages (ADL) have been proposed with varying focus and application domains. There is a need for harmonization of these ADLs. This can be from develoloping and  understanding of how they differ or could be synergistically combined for increasing the overall development efficiency and fulfilling the ever increasing functional and non-functional requirements on a system. This paper addresses this issue and focuses on four different ADLs: EAST-ADL, AUTOSAR, AADL and Rubus[MT1] . In this work we compare these ADLs, identify possible usage scenarios involving more than one ADL and discuss some of the underlying challenges. A representative industrial case study of a brake-by-wire system is used to support the work.
