S. Wolny, A. Mazak, B. Wally: An Initial Mapping Study on MDE4IoT, Workshop Paper, ACM/IEEE 21st International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS), Copenhagen, Denmark, October 14-19, 2018 paper


The term “Internet of Things” (IoT) refers to a distributed network of physical objects and applications that create, transform and consume data. Due to the growing interest in digital transformationand Industry 4.0 topics, IoT is becoming more and more important. However, in order to correctly implement IoT concepts that are mostly highly complex, solutions and techniques must be provided to tackle a multitude of challenges such as heterogeneity, collabora-tive development, reusability of software artifacts, self-adaptation, etc. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) uses the abstraction power of models to handle the complexity of systems and thus it may act as a key-enabler for IoT systems and applications. Therefore,we present an initial mapping study on the state-of-the-art in thefield of MDE4IoT. This study aims to identify to which extent MDEtechniques are currently being applied in the field of IoT, and which challenges are addressed.
