Everyone is talking about model-based development and code generation nowadays - with the help of domain-specific languages, developers can use these to obtain the highest possible benefit. At the joint booth of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, visitors to embedded world 2010 will be able to find out how this is done.
Many software defects are created when the solution idea is transferred into individual program logic structures and algorithms.
Domain-specific languages map the solution space to the problem world, i.e., they can do without transferring the solution idea into classical modeling languages or programming languages. Thus, the engineer can simply combine sensors and actuators with controls, for example, and formulate event chains in the application's nomenclature - the rest will be done by a generator, cost-efficiently and with predictable quality.
How such a domain-specific language can be developed easily, which tools are required to do so, and for which applications this technology is most suitable will be shown by Fraunhofer IESE at this year's embedded world.
Using unbalance detection as an example, it will be shown how complex concepts can be expressed and modified in a simple manner so that variants or system modifications become very easy.
These methods, which were developed in the context of the Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster for Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology, have already been used several times for product development and now have tool assistance for use in product development.
In the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group, we are cooperating with other Fraunhofer institutes on developing trend-setting key technologies for the future. Fraunhofer IESE is one of 59 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Together we have a major impact on shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's competitiveness in international markets.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
