This volume describes novel and state-of-the-art approaches to solving problems arising in the domain of embedded real-time systems. It is based on the GI-Dagstuhl research seminar MBEERTS (Modelling-Based Engineering of Embedded Real-Time Systems), which took place from November 4th to 9th in 2007, at Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany. Using models throughout the development bears several advantages. Not only can they be used as a tool for abstraction... more...
