INTERNET-BASED EMBEDDED SYSTEM ARCHITECTURES - End-User Development Support for Embedded System Applications

Miroslav Sveda, Radimir Vrba

Abstract

This paper presents an approach to industrial embedded system networking that offers a reusable design pattern for the class of Internet-based applications. It deals with an integrated networking framework stemming (1) from the IEEE 1451.1 smart transducer interface standard, which is an object-based networking model supporting among others publish-subscribe approach to group messaging, and (2) from the Internet Protocol (IP) multicast communication, mediating efficient and unified access to smart sensors through Internet. The kernel of this paper focuses on adaptations and tuning of those concepts and on their utilization for a gas pipes pressure measurement system as an application example. Furthermore, the contribution brings this scheme in form suitable not only for framework builders, but also for end-user developers.
