Abstract: Massively distributed embedded systems are rapidly emerging as a key concept for many modern applications. However, providing efficient and scalable decision making capabilities to such systems is currently a significant challenge. This paper proposes a model and a specification language to allow automated synthesis of distributed controllers, which implement and interact through formalisms of different semantics. The paper refers to a case study to illustrate the main capabilities of the proposed concept.


Keywords: Cyber-physical systems, Networks of sensing systems, Goal-oriented programming
