In this paper we use the Activity diagram of the System Modeling Language (SysML) in combination with the new UML profile for Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded systems (MARTE) in order to validate functional, timing and low power requirements in early phases of the embedded system development life-cycle. However, SysML lacks a formal semantics and hence it is not possible to apply, directly, mathematical techniques on SysML models for system validation. Thus, a novel approach for automatic translation of SysML Activity diagram into Time Petri Net with Energy constraints (ETPN) is proposed. In order to depict the practical usability of the proposed method, a case study is presented, namely, pulse-oximeter. Besides, the estimates obtained (execution time and energy consumption) from the model are 95% close to the respective measures obtained from the real hardware platform.
