- Control flow graph layout
Connect the KIELER layout algorithms to an external tool for control flow graphs used in compiler development.
- SyncCharts and actor model visualization
Develop an integrated viewer for SyncCharts and KAOM models using KLighD, including view management techniques such as focus & context and structure-based editing.
- Validation manager for models
Develop an integrated, flexible and generic validation framework for models (e.g. Esterel or SyncCharts).
- Railway track layout
Use KLighD to visualize railway tracks.
- Transformation from SyncCharts to Esterel
Develop a transformation in Xtend2 to generate Esterel code for SyncCharts.
- Instruments for data visualization
Develop visualizations of data values (e.g. through charts) and integrate them in the KIELER environment.
- Multicore Layout
Find good ways of distributing layout tasks in hierarchical diagrams to the different cores of multicore CPUs. Also, evaluate when a multithreaded approach starts to make sense, and how best to implement it.
- Expression language and modularization
Develop an expression language with a type system for SyncCharts. Implement modularization of SyncCharts models.
- FPGA Statecharts
Development of a Statecharts editor, based on .NET, WPF, MS Silverlight. Synthesis onto FPGAs with a data-flow-based intermediate format.
Integrate the synchronous Quartz language into KIELER for validation purposes and teaching.
- Esterel / SyncCharts Validation
Automate the validation for a (generic) SyncCharts simulator employing the Esterel simulator and the Esterel to SyncCharts transformation.
