ImocaGen: A Model-based Code Generator for Embedded Systems Tuning

Goulven Guillou, Jean-Philippe Babau

Abstract

IMOCA is a model-based architecture model dedicated to embedded process control systems in disturbed environment. These systems depend on various parameters which are difficult to set because they are bound to environment changes. In this paper we propose to extend IMOCA with the meta-model ImocaGen for managing the aspects of the code generation. ImocaGen allows to target multiple platforms and different programming languages, generates both embedded code as well as tuning and reconfiguration tools, takes into account different communication protocols and offers a mechanism for integrating handwritten code. This approach is tested on a basic control application for a NXT brick for which three generations are performed: the first one for a PC with an USB connection, the second one for an Android tablet with a Bluetooth connection and the last one for a simulator in Java.
