Special Issue on: "Development of Embedded Systems: Modelling, Verification, Scheduling, Implementation and Reconfiguration"

Guest Editors: Dr. Mohamed Khalgui and Prof. Dr. Hans-Michael Hanisch, Martin Luther University, Germany

The development of mechatronic and embedded systems (MES) is not an easy activity because they have to satisfy user requirements in addition to their time-to-market that has to be ever shorter these days. Nowadays in academia and also in industry, several rich and interesting research works have been carried out to optimise the development process of such systems in order to accelerate their deployment. This special issue is interested in optimal models, architectures, verifications, implementations and reconfigurations of embedded systems.
