Wireless Sensor Networks are becoming one of the most successful choices for the development and deployment of a wide range of applications, from intelligent homes to environment monitoring. In response to the growing demand for fast development of WSN applications, we extend an existing UML-based approach for the design and code generation of Agilla applications with functional simulation and timing analysis capabilities through executable UML models. The proposed approach makes use of both a UML profile and an executable model library for Agilla. Execution times, annotated on Agilla instructions and patterns in the library, are given as additional input parameters during the model execution to carry out a timing analysis of the simulated Agilla applications. Modeling and simulation activities rely on MagicDraw© and Cameo Simulation Toolkit©. A running case study is provided to show the approach and the supporting tools at work.

Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks are becoming one of the most successful choices for the development and deployment of a wide range of applications, from intelligent homes to environment monitoring. In response to the growing demand for fast development of WSN applications, we extend an existing UML-based approach for the design and code generation of Agilla applications with functional simulation and timing analysis capabilities through executable UML models. The proposed approach makes use of both a UML profile and an executable model library for Agilla. Execution times, annotated on Agilla instructions and patterns in the library, are given as additional input parameters during the model execution to carry out a timing analysis of the simulated Agilla applications. Modeling and simulation activities rely on MagicDraw© and Cameo Simulation Toolkit©. A running case study is provided to show the approach and the supporting tools at work.
