Abstract:The future will see the advent of home automation systems: all kinds of home appliances will be connected to a network that enables them to communicate with each other. In such a home automation system a mechanism is needed that integrates the individual devices into a single system. Service Discovery protocols provide this mechanism, but the existing protocols are not well suited for use in a home automation environment. Therefore a new Service Discovery protocol has been developed within the At Home Anywhere project: FRODO. This thesis presents the development of a model of FRODO. For this model an Executable Architectural Description Language, named Rapide will be used, only Rapide is not widely used and therefore little is known about the strengths and weaknesses of this language. That is why modelling FRODO will serve two purposes: creating a simulation environment that will be used to validate the protocol specification of FRODO, and evaluating Rapide. The created simulation environment will be used to simulate a number of scenarios that compare the characteristics of FRODO to those of current Service Discovery protocols.
