About this book


This book focuses on the design and testing of large-scale, distributed signal processing systems, with a special emphasis on systems architecture, tooling and best practices. Architecture modeling, model checking, model-based evaluation and model-based design optimization occupy central roles. Target systems with resource constraints on processing, communication or energy supply require non-trivial methodologies to model their non-functional requirements, such as timeliness, robustness, lifetime and “evolution” capacity. Besides the theoretical foundations of the methodology, an engineering process and toolchain are described. Real-world cases illustrate the theory and practice tested by the authors in the course of the European project ARTEMIS DEMANES. The book can be used as a “cookbook” for designers and practitioners working with complex embedded systems like sensor networks for the structural integrity monitoring of steel bridges, and distributed micro-climate control systems for greenhouses and smart homes.

About the editors

Zoltan Papp received his MSc and doctoral degree at Technical University Budapest, Hungary in 1978 and 1982, respectively, both in electrical engineering. Before joining TNO he served as faculty member at the Department of Measurement and Instrument Engineering of the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary. He held a visiting professor position at School of Engineering, Vanderbilt University, USA, while on leave from TNO. His professional interest covered model-based signal processing and control, distributed real-time systems, multi-agent systems and sensor networks. During the recent years he was involved in projects as system architect covering space robot arm path planning, a real-time simulator for multi-agent systems, control of intelligent transportation systems and wireless sensor network based monitoring.

Georgios Exarchakos is an assistant professor of dependable communications. His primary focus areas are complex network dynamics, internet of things, network resource management and smart cross layer optimizations. Georgios joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2009 as postdoctoral researcher of network management. Since 2011, as assistant professor at the same department has managed two multinational EU projects and has been teaching computer networks and network overlays. He is co-author of Networks for Pervasive Services: six ways to upgrade the Internet (Springer) and editor of one edited book (IGI-Global). George is the author of more than 50 journal articles and conference papers. He received his doctoral degree on peer-to-peer overlays from University of Surrey, Guildford in 2009 and his MSc degree from Imperial College London in 2005.
