6. Work plan: Model checking for real-time systems allows to ensure that a system (the model) verifies the required temporal properties. To be useful, the model must be automatically inferred/translated from the system source code. In the scope of the RESCUE project, it was developed a translation from HTL (a coordination language for concurrent real-time systems) to timed-automata networks of the UPPAAL system. Based on this experience, it is intended to extend/adapt this framework To the ADA/Spark language. The work will include the construction of a translator able to abstract ADA tasks coordination and provide a model for which temporal properties can be analysed.
