Exploring for optimal system architecture


My primary research interest is to provide automated support for system configuration of AUTOSAR architecutre with design space exploration (DSE) methodes. The purpose is to automaticly make optimal architectural decisions (e.g. the allocation of software components to ECUs) subject to the constraints from feasibility, resource utilization, timing, safety, etc.

Other research interests includes (1) architecture recovery for automotive embedded systems, which means to extract architectural model from implementational artifacts (e.g. source code); (2) timing analysis of distributed real-time systems and (3) varibility management of automotive embedded systems.
