Quality-Driven Synthesis of Embedded Multi-Mode Control Systems
Design Automation Conference (DAC), San Fransisco, California, USA, July 26-31, 2009, pp. 864-869.
At runtime, an embedded control system can switch between alternative functional modes. In each mode, the system operates by using a schedule and controllers that exploit the available computation and communication resources to optimize the control performance in the running mode. The number of modes is usually exponential in the number of control loops, which means that all controllers and schedules cannot be produced in affordable design-time and stored in memory. This paper addresses synthesis of multi-mode embedded control systems. Our contribution is a method that trades control quality with optimization time, and that efficiently selects the schedules and controllers to be synthesized and stored in memory.
