The CIP method

Hugo Fierz
1999 Software engineering notes  
This problem is solved by means of techniques and tools adapted to the technology of the interface devices.  ...  The problem of constructing an embedded system is decomposed into a functional and a connection problem. The functional problem is solved by constructing a formal reactive behavioural model.  ...  The functional behaviour of a CIP system is specified by an operational model of cooperating extended state machines. 'Operational' means that the model is formally executable [4] .  ...

Formal Specification and Verification of Autonomous Robotic Systems: A Survey [article]

Matt Luckcuck, Marie Farrell, Louise Dennis, Clare Dixon, Michael Fisher
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Specially, it identifies and categorises the challenges posed by, the formalisms aimed at, and the formal approaches for the specification and verification of autonomous robotics.  ...  Though commonly used, testing and simulation alone are insufficient to ensure the correctness of, or provide sufficient evidence for the certification of, autonomous robotics.  ...  Formal techniques can be used to provide trust and certification evidence, but it is clear that current techniques are insufficient.  ...
