Abstract: In this thesis, we proposed a unified design framework to manage the complex development of BSN application with the aims of enhancing modularity and reusability. The proposed framework consists of a set of Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.0 profiles for both software and hardware designs. The UML profiles abstract the low-level details of the application, and provide a higher level of description for application developers to graphically design, document and maintain their BSNs applications that consist of both hardware and software components. Using profiles for hardware platforms, we are able to customize a UML based hardware model for new BSN application. Customized simulator can be automatically generated after refining system model or re-configuring the hardware parameters. Key design issues, such as timing and energy consumption can be tested on this automatically generated simulator. The framework ensures a separation of software and hardware development while maintaining the close connection between them.
