Abstract: • Control systems for large physics experiments (such as telescopes and particle accelerators) are intrinsically complex embedded systems.
• Similar to mechatronics systems in industry, they require the joint appli-cation of systems, mechanics, electronics, and software design.
• Model-based engineering (MBE) is widely used in industry and experi-mental physics, but it leads to disparate domain-specific models that cannot be integrated easily.
• Knowledge-based engineering (KBE) promises better integration (so-called “semantic integration”) of domain-specific models, but very few success stories of real-life control systems exist up to date.
• By synthesizing some of the best practices in industry and experimental physics, we are able to design, implement and verify new control systems for the Mercator Telescope using a novel knowledge-based engineering methodology and an in-house developed tool chain.
