English abstract:
The ever-increasing functionality and the nonfunctional
constraints that must be satisfied by
embedded systems lead to an enormous growth in the
complexity at the system level. In this paper we
investigate the notion of cognitive complexity and
argue that it is not the embedded system, but the
models of the embedded system that must be simple
and understandable. The introduction of appropriate
levels of abstraction in modeling and the associated
concept formation help to reduce the emerging
complexity by focusing on the relevant properties and
omitting irrelevant detail, thus leading to a simpler
representation of the evolving artifact. In the second
part of the paper we present examples of basic-level
concepts that we find essential in the design of
distributed embedded systems and summarize the
insights by presenting a set of concise design patterns
that support the component-based design of
embedded systems.
