Mitsubishi Electric R&D Europe (2015-2018)

  • Title: Analysis and verification for correct by construction orchestration in automated factories

  • Inria principal investigator: Jean-Pierre Talpin, Simon Lunel

  • International Partner: Mitsubishi Electric R&D Europe

  • Duration: 2015 - 2018

  • Abstract: The primary goal of our project is to ensure correctness-by-design in cyber-physical systems, i.e., systems that mix software and hardware in a physical environment, e.g., Mitsubishi factory automation lines. We plan to explore a multi-sorted algebraic framework for static analysis and formal verification starting from a simple use case extracted from Mitsubishi factory automation documentations. This will serve as a basis to more ambitious research where we intend to leverage recent advance in type theory, SMT solvers for nonlinear real arithmetic (dReal and δ-decidability) and contracts theory (meta-theory of Benveniste et al., Ruchkin's contracts) to provide a general framework of reasoning about heterogeneous factory components.
