    Abstract

    The method and software tool presented here, aims at supporting the development of control software for mechatronic systems. Heterogeneous distributed embedded processors are considered as target hardware. Principles of the method are that the implementation process is a stepwise refinement from control laws to efficient computer code and that all phases are verified by simulation. Simulation is also used as verification tool during physical-system modelling and control law development. Data flow diagrams are used as description language for controller implementations, whereas the physical-system models are expressed in bond graphs. Future work comprises the building of the complete tool, although individual parts are ready.
