Abstract : This paper details how LINC a coordination middle-ware, can fasten the development of prototypes that integrate several equipment. A case study of rapid prototyping is presented. It illustrates how a smart parking prototype has been built from several independent and autonomous equipment, coming from different vendors. This has been achieved by parallel development thanks to the resource based approach offered by LINC. This paper also describes how LINC helps building rich user interfaces quickly and easily. I. INTRODUCTION Embedded systems have been part of our daily life for decades. Most of the industrial or consumer products embed multiple processors, sensors and actuators. The next step is the opportunity to build new products, systems, and usages, combining together several of these products. In such innovative and quickly evolving context it is necessary to build prototypes to test, validate, and challenge new products usages or solutions. This paper considers prototypes including several equipment, possibly from different vendors. Such prototypes can be used to exhibit demonstrations in a trade fair, to convince investors of the viability of an idea or to verify the adequacy of the solutions for early adopters. To succeed in today-s highly competitive market, a prototype should be more than a few items wired together with a command line interface. Targeted prototypes are real-life demonstrations of new products or technologies with a high end-user experience. Moreover, a prototype should be included in its targeted environment e.g. a house, a building or a parking. The development of prototypes is vital during the validation stage of new products as they may help to:
