SHIFT and SMART-AHS: A Language For Hybrid System
Engineering Modeling and Simulation
Marco Antoniotti and A. Göllü
University of California, Berkeley
SHIFT is a new programming language, whose aim is to facilitate the
implementation of reusable simulation frameworks by teams of
engineers. SHIFT incorporates system theoretic concepts emerging
from the field of Hybrid Systems analysis and modeling. The
SMART AHS framework is a collection of SHIFT libraries devoted to
the construction of Hybrid System based simulation of
Automated Highways Systems. In this paper we describe how the
SHIFT simulation environment and language have impacted on the
development of the SMART AHS framework. Our claim is that SHIFT
provides the proper level of abstraction for engineers who face
complex modeling and simulation tasks, where phase changes and
continuous variables interact in subtle ways.
