Abstract

The IEC 61499 standard defines an architecture and software tool requirements for the encapsulation, embedding, deployment and integration of intellectual property (IP) in intelligent devices, machines and systems. A reference framework and engineering methodology is presented for the use of IEC 61499 in the design, development, simulation, testing and implementation of distributed control and automation systems employing intelligent mechatronic components.
