Modeling Basic Aspects of Cyber-Physical Systems
2012 (English)In: 3rd International Workshop on Domain-Specific Languages and models for ROBotic systems (DSLRob-12), 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
Designing novel cyber-physical systems entails significant, costly physical experimentation. Simulation tools can enable the virtualization of experiments. Unfortunately, current tools have shortcomings that limit their utility for virtual experimentation. Language research can be especially helpful in addressing many of these problems. As a first step in this direction, we consider the question of determining what language features are needed to model cyber-physical systems. Using a series of elementary examples of cyber-physical systems, we reflect on the extent to which a small, experimental domain-specific formalism called Acumen suffices for this purpose.
