Chapter 4Direct Realization Of System Control Software

The task and state specification for a project, along with the auxiliary documentation, should constitute a complete engineering specification for the operation of a mechatronic control system. The realization stage of the project is the translation of the specification into computer code. The computer code is ideally constructed independently of specific computational environments. It is ideal in the sense that choice of language and level of code formality will have an effect on computational environments into which the code could be ported. For example, if the language C++ is chosen to prototype a problem that will ultimately be implemented in a minimally equipped microcontroller, the ...
