Platform-Specific Code Generation From Platform-Independent Timed Models, Baekgyu Kim, Lu Feng, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee Mar 2016

Platform-Specific Code Generation From Platform-Independent Timed Models, Baekgyu Kim, Lu Feng, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee

Oleg Sokolsky

Many safety-critical real-time embedded systems need to meet stringent timing constraints such as preserving delay bounds between input and output events. In model-based development, a system is often implemented by using a code generator to automatically generate source code from system models, and integrating the generated source code with a platform. It is challenging to guarantee that the implemented systems preserve required timing constraints, because the timed behavior of the source code and the platform is closely intertwined. In this paper, we address this challenge by proposing a model transformation approach for the code generation. Our approach compensates the platform-processing ...


From Requirements To Code: Model Based Development Of A Medical Cyber Physical System, Anitha Murugesan, Mats Heimdahl, Michael Whalen, Sanjai Rayadurgam, John Komp, Lian Duan, Baekgyu Kim, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee Mar 2016

From Requirements To Code: Model Based Development Of A Medical Cyber Physical System, Anitha Murugesan, Mats Heimdahl, Michael Whalen, Sanjai Rayadurgam, John Komp, Lian Duan, Baekgyu Kim, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee

Oleg Sokolsky

The advanced use of technology in medical devices has improved the way health care is delivered to patients. Unfortunately, the increased complexity of modern medical devices poses challenges for development, assurance, and regulatory approval. In an e ort to improve the safety of advanced medical devices, organizations such as FDA have supported exploration of techniques to aid in the development and regulatory approval of such systems. In an ongoing research project, our aim is to provide effective development techniques and exemplars of system development artifacts that demonstrate state of the art development techniques.

In this paper we present an end-to-end ...


Verified Ros-Based Deployment Of Platform-Independent Control Systems, Wenrui Meng, Junkil Park, Oleg Sokolsky, Stephanie Weirich, Insup Lee Mar 2016

Verified Ros-Based Deployment Of Platform-Independent Control Systems, Wenrui Meng, Junkil Park, Oleg Sokolsky, Stephanie Weirich, Insup Lee

Oleg Sokolsky

The paper considers the problem of model-based deployment of platform-independent control code on a specific platform. The approach is based on automatic generation of platform-specific glue code from an architectural model of the system. We present a tool, ROSGen, that generates the glue code based on a declarative specification of platform interfaces. Our implementation targets the popular Robot Operating System (ROS) platform. We demonstrate that the code generation process is amenable to formal verification. The code generator is implemented in Coq and relies on the infrastructure provided by the CompCert and VST tool. We prove that the generated code always ...

Automatic Verification Of Linear Controller Software, Miroslav Pajic, Junkil Park, Insup Lee, George Pappas, Oleg Sokolsky Mar 2016

Automatic Verification Of Linear Controller Software, Miroslav Pajic, Junkil Park, Insup Lee, George Pappas, Oleg Sokolsky

Oleg Sokolsky

We consider the problem of verification of software implementations of linear time-invariant controllers. Commonly, different implementations use different representations of the controller’s state, for example due to optimizations in a third-party code generator. To accommodate this variation, we exploit input-output controller specification captured by the controller’s transfer function and show how to automatically verify correctness of C code controller implementations using a Frama-C/Why3/Z3 toolchain. Scalability of the approach is evaluated using randomly generated controller specifications of realistic size.

A Data-Driven Behavior Modeling And Analysis Framework For Diabetic Patients On Insulin Pumps, Sanjian Chen, Lu Feng, Michael Rickels, Amy Peleckis, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee Mar 2016

A Data-Driven Behavior Modeling And Analysis Framework For Diabetic Patients On Insulin Pumps, Sanjian Chen, Lu Feng, Michael Rickels, Amy Peleckis, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee

Oleg Sokolsky

About 30%-40% of Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) patients in the United States use insulin pumps. Current insulin infusion systems require users to manually input meal carb count and approve or modify the system-suggested meal insulin dose. Users can give correction insulin boluses at any time. Since meal carbohydrates and insulin are the two main driving forces of the glucose physiology, the user-specific eating and pump-using behavior has a great impact on the quality of glycemic control.

In this paper, we propose an “Eat, Trust, and Correct” (ETC) framework to model the T1D insulin pump users’ behavior. We use machine ...

Low-Cost Stereo Vision On An Fpga, Chris A. Murphy, Daniel Lindquist, Ann Marie Rynning, Thomas Cecil, Sarah Leavitt, Mark L. Chang Jul 2012

Low-Cost Stereo Vision On An Fpga, Chris A. Murphy, Daniel Lindquist, Ann Marie Rynning, Thomas Cecil, Sarah Leavitt, Mark L. Chang

Mark L. Chang

We present a low-cost stereo vision implementation suitable for use in autonomous vehicle applications and designed with agricultural applications in mind. This implementation utilizes the Census transform algorithm to calculate depth maps from a stereo pair of automotive-grade CMOS cameras. The final prototype utilizes commodity hardware, including a Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGA, to process 320times240 pixel images at greater than 150 frames per second and deliver them via a USB 2.0 interface.


Automated Least-Significant Bit Datapath Optimization For Fpgas, Mark L. Chang, Scott Hauck Jul 2012

Automated Least-Significant Bit Datapath Optimization For Fpgas, Mark L. Chang, Scott Hauck

Mark L. Chang

In this paper, we present a method for FPGA datapath precision optimization subject to user-defined area and error constraints. This work builds upon our previous research which presented a methodology for optimizing the dynamic range- the most significant bit position. In this work, we present an automated optimization technique for the least-significant bit position of circuit datapaths. We present results describing the effectiveness of our methods on typical signal and image processing kernels.

Transparent Fault Tolerance For Web Services Based Architectures, Vijay Dialani, Simon Miles, Luc Moreau, David De Roure, Michael Luck Dec 2001

Transparent Fault Tolerance For Web Services Based Architectures, Vijay Dialani, Simon Miles, Luc Moreau, David De Roure, Michael Luck

Vijay Dialani

Service-based architectures enable the development of new classes of Grid and distributed applications. One of the main capabilities provided by such systems is the dynamic and flexible integration of services, according to which services are allowed to be a part of more than one distributed system and simultaneously serve different applications. This increased flexibility in system composition makes it difficult to address classical distributed system issues such as fault-tolerance. While it is relatively easy to make an individual service fault-tolerant, improving fault-tolerance of services collaborating in multiple application scenarios is a challenging task. In this paper, we look at the ...
