Use Case Diagram Taxi Service UML. This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Use Case Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This sample shows the work of the taxi service and is used by taxi stations, by airports, in the tourism field and delivery service. Read more
"RT-middleware (Robotics Technology Middleware) is a common platform standards for Robots based on the distributed object technology. RT-middleware supports the construction of various networked robotic systems by the integration of various network enabled robotic elements called RT-Components. The specification standard of the RT-component is discussed / defined by the Object Management Group (OMG). ...
In the RT-middleware, robotics elements, such as actuators, are regarded as RT-components, and the whole robotic system is constructed by connecting those RT-components. This distributed architecture helps developers to re-use the robotic elements, and boosts the reliability of the robotic system.
Each RT-component has port as an endpoint for communicating other RT-components. Every port has its type and the ports which have the same type can be connected each other.
RT-components also has its state, so the RT-components behaves as state machines. The states that RT-components can have are CREATED, INACTIVE, ACTIVE, and ERROR, and the states and behaviors are controlled by the execution-context. If developers want to change the behavior of their RT-components, the execution-context can be replaced at run-time." [RT middleware. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Ports and Flows" contains 26 SysML symbols.
Use it to design your SysML diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"The main motivation for specifying ports and flows is to enable design of modular, reusable blocks with clearly defined
ways of connecting and interacting with their context of use. This clause extends UML ports to support nested ports, and
extends blocks to support flow properties, and required and provided features, including blocks that type ports. Ports can be typed by blocks that support operations, receptions, and properties as in UML. SysML defines a specialized form of Block (InterfaceBlock) that can be used to support nested ports. SysML identifies two kinds of ports, one that exposes
features of the owning block or its internal parts (proxy ports), and another that supports its own features (full ports). Default compatibility rules are defined for connecting blocks used in composite structure, including parts and ports, with association blocks available to define more specific ways of doing this. These additional capabilities in SysML enable modelers to specify a wide variety of interconnectable components, which can be implemented through many engineering and social techniques, such as software, electrical or mechanical components, and human organizations. This clause also extends UML information flows for specifying item flows across connectors and associations." [www.omg.org/spec/SysML/1.3/PDF]

This example was drawn on the base of SysML activity diagram on the page 8 of "SysML Modelling Language explained" document from the Official OMG SysML site.
"The activity diagram represents steps of a process, often making use of “input and output pins” that respectively correspond to the element type required as the input of an activity or action, and the element generated as an output.
If an action or activity corresponds to a block operation, it is possible to ensure that the types of the input and output of this activity are consistent with the block operation signature.
All the activity diagrams definitions used in UML also apply to SysML.
SysML has added a couple of extensions:
- With UML, control can only enable actions to start. SysML extends control to support disabling of actions that are already executing.
- Definition of the flow rate : continuous or discrete
- Definition of the rate and probability on the control or object flows"

SysML

Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a general-purpose modeling language for systems engineering applications. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with SysML Solution from the Software Development Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park specially to help systems engineers design various model systems with SysML.

The vector stencils library "Requirement diagram" contains 21 SysML symbols.
Use it to design your requirement diagrams using ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A requirement specifies a capability or condition that must (or should) be satisfied. A requirement may specify a function that a system must perform or a performance condition a system must achieve. SysML provides modeling constructs to represent text-based requirements and relate them to other modeling elements. The requirements diagram described in this clause can depict the requirements in graphical, tabular, or tree structure format. A requirement can also appear on other diagrams to show its relationship to other modeling elements. The requirements modeling constructs are intended to provide a bridge between traditional requirements management tools and the other SysML models.
A requirement is defined as a stereotype of UML Class subject to a set of constraints. A standard requirement includes properties to specify its unique identifier and text requirement. Additional properties such as verification status, can be specified by the user.
Several requirements relationships are specified that enable the modeler to relate requirements to other requirements as well as to other model elements. These include relationships for defining a requirements hierarchy, deriving requirements, satisfying requirements, verifying requirements, and refining requirements." [www.omg.org/spec/SysML/1.3/PDF]

"The use case diagram describes the usage of a system (subject) by its actors (environment) to achieve a goal, that is
realized by the subject providing a set of services to selected actors. The use case can also be viewed as functionality and/
or capabilities that are accomplished through the interaction between the subject and its actors. Use case diagrams include the use case and actors and the associated communications between them. Actors represent classifier roles that are external to the system that may correspond to users, systems, and or other environmental entities. They may interact either directly or indirectly with the system. The actors are often specialized to represent a taxonomy of user types or external systems." [omg.org/spec/SysML/1.3/]
