When developing simulation software, the development team has to rely on the competence of subject matter experts (SMEs) in different areas and with expertise from a multitude of domains, such as mechanics, power electronics, avionics, and more. In general, expecting SMEs to translate their domain knowledge into an imperative programming language is quite unrealistic, leading to the use of domain-specific languages.The purpose of this project is to define a methodology for hiding software complexity from SMEs by automating the software generation, mapping and optimization according to inputs from SMEs and hardware and software experts.
* What we expect from you:
The postdoc working on the project will have the following objectives:
-Define a DSL language for describing the architecture of a simulation platform and how a simulator will run on this architecture.
-Develop a compiler that takes as input the descriptions of a target platform and generates an application ready for the deployment on a distributed platform
- Validate the effectiveness of the methodology using a Full Mission Simulator
MIST is a lab dedicated to computer engineering targeted towards space technologies. The lab is located in the Lassonde Building, at Polytechnique Montreal, situated on the campus of the University of Montreal. The lab is just a few metro stops away from Montreal’s lively downtown area.
