LESSONS LEARNED IN APPLYING MDE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

Abstract

Home Automation (HA) systems represent a domain of interest to evaluate the benefits and difficulties of adopting the well known Model Driven Engineering (MDE) approach. This is due to the existence of determining factors in the development of such systems that makes MDE applicable with some considerations. This article presents the lessons learned after the definition of a methodology and the implementation of a set of tools to support the MDE-base development of HA systems. In particular, the definition of a Domain Specific Language has made possible the generation of code although we have identified some peculiarities and differences from a classical MDE perspective. These results can be extrapolated to other domains with similar characteristic.
