The major problem addressed by this research is how to improve an existing real-time software system's readability, maintainability, stability and portability using reengineering techniques. A fundamental portion of the Model- based Mobile robot Language (MML) was the real-time system chosen as the basis for this study. The approach taken was to create a new system design. The new design was based on system specifications obtained by conducting static and dynamic analysis on the existing system. The results are that a new core system was implemented using a design that focused on creating independent software sub-systems while encapsulating data. Hardware dependencies were localized and assembly code minimized. The new system is easier to understand and modify and is portable to other hardware platforms.
