About the Authors
  • This tutorial reference takes the reader from use cases to complete architectures for real-time embedded systems using SysML, UML, and MARTE and shows how to apply the COMET/RTE design method to real-world problems. The author covers key topics such as architectural patterns for distributed and hierarchical real-time control and other real-time software architectures, performance analysis of real-time designs using real-time scheduling, and timing analysis on single and multiple processor systems. Complete case studies illustrating design issues include a light rail control system, a microwave oven control system, and an automated highway toll system. Organized as an introduction followed by several self-contained chapters, the book is perfect for experienced software engineers wanting a quick reference at each stage of the analysis, design, and development of large-scale real-time embedded systems, as well as for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in software engineering, computer engineering, and software design.

    • Provides a concurrent object-oriented analysis and design method for real-time embedded software
    • Includes comprehensive case studies
    • Provides a catalog of Architectural design patterns for real-time embedded systems, with examples of their use in several case studies
    • Includes performance analysis of real-time designs using real-time scheduling and timing analysis on single and multiple processor systems

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book reports on a comprehensive, practical, and thorough approach to model-driven requirements, analysis, architecture, and design of real-time embedded systems. Another very interesting feature is the numerous, detailed case studies illustrating the proposed methodology. I strongly recommend Hassan Gomaa’s new book to faculty members teaching software development, computer science students, and software engineers."
    Lionel Briand, IEEE Fellow, Professor and Vice-Director, SnT Centre, University of Luxembourg

    "A thoroughly modern and comprehensive work. Gomaa has managed to successfully combine in a single volume a reference book for experienced practitioners and a highly readable pedagogical text for students. It covers all the key facets of current embedded software design: from requirements specification to implementation, from architecture to coding."
    Bran Selić, Malina Software Corp.

    "This textbook contains material that is "battle-tested" in graduate courses, and includes in-depth case studies that allow readers to see concepts applied. The book describes a hands-on design method, coupled to an industry standard notation and applied to a wide array of software design challenges."
    Kevin Mills, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Maryland
