Abstract:
Complex technical systems, such as mechatronic systems, can exploit networking as well as the computational power available today to achieve an automatic improvement of the technical system performance at run-time through self-optimization. To realize this vision, appropriate means for the design of such self-optimizing mechatronic systems are required. Well-established techniques and tools for the modeling of cognitive behavior, reflective behavior, and control behavior exist. However, to really enable self-optimization and its full potential, these different aspects have to be safely integrated in a manner that remains comprehensible to the designer. In this article, we present how this required integration has been realized at the semantic level by extending the unified modeling language (UML), and at the tool level by integrating the CAE tool CAMeL and the CASE tool Fujaba real-time tool suite. The presented Mechatronic UML approach supports the design of verifiable, complex, reconfigurable mechatronic systems using the multi-agent system metaphor.
