Soft component automata: Composition, compilation, logic, and verification

Tobias Kappé, Benjamin Lion, Farhad Arbab, Carolyn Talcott
2019 Science of Computer Programming  
Lastly, we implement a toolchain that compiles our automata to Maude, allowing us to apply the rich model checking capability of Maude to verify agent behavior.  ...  We extend linear temporal logic with two unary connectives that reflect the compositional structure of actions, and show that it is decidable whether all behaviors of a given automaton satisfy a formula  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Vivek Nigam and the anonymous referees for their valuable feedback.  ...

congruence, and composition.  ...  In Sections 6 and 7, we subsequently present two approaches for computing the composition of constraint automata w/mc using the operations defined in Section 5.  ...  In our compiler, we use constraint automata to compositionally represent connector behavior, and our compiler therefore needs to compose small constraint automata into larger ones as efficiently as possible  ...

Specification of Embedded Control Systems Behaviour Using Actor Interface Automata [chapter]

Christo Angelov, Feng Zhou, Krzysztof Sierszecki
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The above modeling technique has implications for system design, since interface automata can be used as design models that can be implemented as application or operating system components.  ...  It has also implications for system analysis, since actor interface automata are essentially timed automata that can be used as analysis models in model checking tools and simulation environments.  ...  It has also implications for system verification, since interface automata are essentially timed automata that can be used as analysis models for verification tools like e.g., Uppaal or simulation environments  ...

Testing Real-Time Embedded Systems using Timed Automata based approaches

M. Saeed AbouTrab, Michael Brockway, Steve Counsell, Robert M. Hierons
2013 Journal of Systems and Software  
This research addresses the problem of testing RTESs from Timed Automata (TA) specification by the following.  ...  First, a new Priority-based Approach (PA) for testing RTES modelled formally as UPPAAL timed automata (TA variant) is introduced.  ...  Model checking is a verification method that checks the entire specification model according to some logical properties.  ...

The synchronous languages 12 years later

A. Benveniste, P. Caspi, S.A. Edwards, N. Halbwachs, P. Le Guernic, R. de Simone
2003 Proceedings of the IEEE  
This paper discusses the improvements, difficulties, and successes that have occured with the synchronous languages since then.  ...  Today, synchronous languages have been established as a technology of choice for modeling, specifying, validating, and implementing real-time embedded applications.  ...  It appears in automata, in the discrete-time dynamical systems familiar to control engineers, and in synchronous digital logic familiar to hardware designers.  ...

An Application of Specification-Based Design of Self-stabilization to Tracking in Wireless Sensor Networks [chapter]

Murat Demirbas, Anish Arora
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In previous work, we have designed a tracking protocol, Stalk, for wireless sensor networks and proved it to be self-stabilizing at the pseudo-code (I/O automata) level.  ...  In this paper, we present a lightweight and practical method for specification-based design of stabilization and illustrate this method on the Stalk protocol as our case study.  ...  Even if the implementation of Tracker i automata is performed manually, the verification process for ordinary refinements are, in general, easier than that of fault-tolerance preserving and compositional  ...
