Many model-based approaches have been suggested to improve and accelerate the development process of complex distributed embedded systems (DES) from design to deployment. In this approach, abstract models of the system are created and then transformed systematically into concrete implementations. Modeling focuses on commands and information being distributed reliably throughout the system with minimized latency to maintain acceptable QoS. In this research, an irrigation system is developed. Model-based development was used to model the architecture and communication of distributed nodes. However, the complexity of the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications used by the irrigation system requires a model with very high sophistication in the bottom-up modeling approach. A distributed irrigation system is implemented as a proof of concept using an experimental Bluetooth Low Energy based network topology and protocol, and the data was observed to verify the correct operations.
