Title Automatic Analysis of a Safety Critical Tele Control System Type Conference Article
Year 2005 Publication 24th International Conference on: Computer Safety, Reliability, and Security (SAFECOMP) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 94-107
Keywords
Abstract We show how the Mur$\varphi$ model checker can be used to automatically carry out safety analysis of a quite complex hybrid system tele-controlling vehicles traffic inside a safety critical transport infrastructure such as a long bridge or a tunnel. We present the Mur$\varphi$ model we developed towards this end as well as the experimental results we obtained by running the Mur$\varphi$ verifier on our model. Our experimental results show that the approach presented here can be used to verify safety of critical dimensioning parameters (e.g. bandwidth) of the telecommunication network embedded in a safety critical system.

Title Electric Power System Anomaly Detection Using Neural Networks Type Conference Article
Year 2004 Publication 8th International Conference on: Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems (KES) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 1242-1248
Keywords
Abstract The aim of this work is to propose an approach to monitor and protect Electric Power System by learning normal system behaviour at substations level, and raising an alarm signal when an abnormal status is detected; the problem is addressed by the use of autoassociative neural networks, reading substation measures. Experimental results show that, through the proposed approach, neural networks can be used to learn parameters underlaying system behaviour, and their output processed to detecting anomalies due to hijacking of measures, changes in the power network topology (i.e. transmission lines breaking) and unexpected power demand trend.

Title Fluid Petri Nets and hybrid model checking: a comparative case study Type Journal Article
Year 2003 Publication Int. Journal on: Reliability Engineering & System Safety Abbreviated Journal
Volume 81 Issue 3 Pages 239-257
Keywords
Abstract The modeling and analysis of hybrid systems is a recent and challenging research area which is actually dominated by two main lines: a functional analysis based on the description of the system in terms of discrete state (hybrid) automata (whose goal is to ascertain conformity and reachability properties), and a stochastic analysis (whose aim is to provide performance and dependability measures). This paper investigates a unifying view between formal methods and stochastic methods by proposing an analysis methodology of hybrid systems based on Fluid Petri Nets (FPNs). FPNs can be analyzed directly using appropriate tools. Our paper shows that the same FPN model can be fed to different functional analyzers for model checking. In order to extensively explore the capability of the technique, we have converted the original FPN into languages for discrete as well as hybrid as well as stochastic model checkers. In this way, a first comparison among the modeling power of well known tools can be carried out. Our approach is illustrated by means of a ’real world’ hybrid system: the temperature control system of a co-generative plant.

Title Exploiting Transition Locality in the Disk Based Mur$\varphi$ Verifier Type Conference Article
Year 2002 Publication 4th International Conference on Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design (FMCAD) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 202-219
Keywords
Abstract The main obstruction to automatic verification of Finite State Systems is the huge amount of memory required to complete the verification task (state explosion). This motivates research on distributed as well as disk based verification algorithms. In this paper we present a disk based Breadth First Explicit State Space Exploration algorithm as well as an implementation of it within the Mur$\varphi$ verifier. Our algorithm exploits transition locality (i.e. the statistical fact that most transitions lead to unvisited states or to recently visited states) to decrease disk read accesses thus reducing the time overhead due to disk usage. A disk based verification algorithm for Mur$\varphi$ has been already proposed in the literature. To measure the time speed up due to locality exploitation we compared our algorithm with such previously proposed algorithm. Our experimental results show that our disk based verification algorithm is typically more than 10 times faster than such previously proposed disk based verification algorithm. To measure the time overhead due to disk usage we compared our algorithm with RAM based verification using the (standard) Mur$\varphi$ verifier with enough memory to complete the verification task. Our experimental results show that even when using 1/10 of the RAM needed to complete verification, our disk based algorithm is only between 1.4 and 5.3 times (3 times on average) slower than (RAM) Mur$\varphi$ with enough RAM memory to complete the verification task at hand. Using our disk based Mur$\varphi$ we were able to complete verification of a protocol with about $10^9$ reachable states. This would require more than 5 gigabytes of RAM using RAM based Mur$\varphi$.

Title Integrating Automatic Verification of Safety Requirements in Railway Interlocking System Design Type Conference Article
Year 2001 Publication High Assurance Systems Engineering, 2001. Sixth IEEE International Symposium on Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 209-219
Keywords
Abstract A railway interlocking system (RIS) is an embedded system (namely a supervisory control system) that ensures the safe, operation of the devices in a railway station. RIS is a safety critical system. We explore the possibility of integrating automatic formal verification methods in a given industry RIS design flow. The main obstructions to be overcome in our work are: selecting a formal verification tool that is efficient enough to solve the verification problems at hand; and devising a cost effective integration strategy for such tool. We were able to devise a successful integration strategy meeting the above constraints without requiring major modification in the pre-existent design flow nor retraining of personnel. We run verification experiments for a RIS designed for the Singapore Subway. The experiments show that the RIS design flow obtained from our integration strategy is able to automatically verify real life RIS designs.

Title Linearising Discrete Time Hybrid Systems Type Journal Article
Year 2017 Publication IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control Abbreviated Journal
Volume 62 Issue 10 Pages 5357-5364
Keywords
Abstract Model Based Design approaches for embedded systems aim at generating correct-by-construction control software, guaranteeing that the closed loop system (controller and plant) meets given system level formal specifications. This technical note addresses control synthesis for safety and reachability properties of possibly non-linear discrete time hybrid systems. By means of syntactical transformations that require non-linear terms to be Lipschitz continuous functions, we over-approximate non-linear dynamics with a linear system whose controllers are guaranteed to be controllers of the original system. We evaluate performance of our approach on meaningful control synthesis benchmarks, also comparing it to a state-of-the-art tool.

Title Hardware Verification, Boolean Logic Programming, Boolean Functional Programming Type Conference Article
Year 1995 Publication Tenth Annual IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 408-418
Keywords
Abstract One of the main obstacles to automatic verification of finite state systems (FSSs) is state explosion. In this respect automatic verification of an FSS M using model checking and binary decision diagrams (BDDs) has an intrinsic limitation: no automatic global optimization of the verification task is possible until a BDD representation for M is generated. This is because systems and specifications are defined using different languages. To perform global optimization before generating a BDD representation for M we propose to use the same language to define systems and specifications. We show that first order logic on a Boolean domain yields an efficient functional programming language that can be used to represent, specify and automatically verify FSSs, e.g. on a SUN Sparc Station 2 we were able to automatically verify a 64 bit commercial multiplier.
