Executive Summary

Component-based development promises many improvements in developing software for embedded systems, e.g., greater reuse of once written software, less error-prone development process, greater analyzability of systems and shorter time needed for overall development. One of the aspects commonly left out of component models is communication of software components with hardware devices such as sensors and actuators. As one of the main characteristics of embedded systems is the interaction with their environment through hardware devices, the effects of this interaction should be fully included in component models for embedded systems.
