English abstract:
Due to the upcoming paradigm of the Internet of Things (IoT), integrating building automation systems (BASs), like KNX, into the Internet is becoming increasingly important. Nonetheless, a lot of different standards and technologies have to be kept in mind. Gateway technologies, like Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX), which offer Web services (WSs), can be used as interfaces between BASs and remote building management systems (BMSs). For an efficient and common way, an automated integration process needs to be defined.
Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) provides a model-centric solution to establish such an automated integration process by defining appropriate modeling languages and transformations. In the underlying work, OMG's MDE initiative, Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), is utilized to specify the model-driven approach consisting of two modeling languages and a three-stage transformation process. Additionally, a proof of concept implementation, which is based on Eclipse and the IoT integration middleware IoTSyS, shows the functional capability of the developed approach. An experimental KNX network is modeled using configuration data from the Engineering Tool Software (ETS). This model is integrated into an oBIX gateway to show the functionality of the model-driven approach and the proof of concept implementation.
