SIMULATION-BASED TO VERIFICATION OF TEMPORAL PRECEDENCE

Sayan Mitra, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
January 9, 2014,10:00 am, NASA Langley, Bldg 1220, Rm 212

Abstract:
Design defects in embedded systems can be elusive and expensive. The simulation to verification research program aims to exploit finite data generated from simulation tools or from system’s executions to provide formal guarantees about uncountable sets of executions. In this
talk, Dr. Mitra will present recent developments in this area on sound and relatively complete simulation-based verification algorithms for nonlinear and switched systems. The approach introduces the new type of model annotations which are used to verify bounded time temporal precedence properties of moderately high dimensional systems. Dr Mitra will discuss results of applying these technique to an alerting system for a SAPA/ALAS-inspired parallel landing protocol.
