Software development for the control of mechatronic systems in industry still suffers from the lack of integration of the domains involved, the lack of verification tools, and the fact that the physical structure of mechatronic systems, irregular situations, and service functions are often insufficiently taken into account. To address these problems, we present a framework and a set of tools with which a multidisciplinary product development team can (almost) automatically generate control software for mechatronic systems.
