Keynote 3 — Foundations of Programming Cyber-Physical Systems
Foundations of Programming Cyber-Physical Systems
by Rupak Majumdar, Max Planck Institute for Software Systems
CPS applications tightly integrate computation, communication, geometric reasoning, and dynamics. Despite many advances in robotics and programming languages research individually, we still lack language abstractions and reasoning principles for such systems. In this talk, I will describe work on the PGCD project, where we develop programming models and reasoning principles for multi-robot coordination. PGCD models concurrent components communicating through message passing as well as executing continuous-time motion primitives in physical space. We show how a combination of choreography types, assume-guarantee reasoning, and reactive synthesis can lead to formal verification of correctness for global specifications. We have compiled PGCD programs to ROS and show that it is feasible to verify non-trivial multi-robot coordination programs.
