Abstract
Model-driven engineering (MDE) has been successfully adopted in domains such as automation or embedded systems. However, in many other domains, MDE is rarely applied. In this paper, we describe our experiences of applying MDE techniques in the domain of neurorobotics -- a combination of neuroscience and robotics, studying the embodiment of autonomous neural systems. In particular, we participated in the development of the Neurorobotics Platform (NRP) -- an online platform for describing and running neurorobotic experiments by coupling brain and robot simulations. We explain why MDE was chosen and discuss conceptual and technical challenges, such as inconsistent understanding of models, focus of the development and platform-barriers.
