Investigation of Formal Methods Based on Algebraic Specifications for Sensor Systems

Masaki Nakamura, Akira Urashima, Tomoji Toriyama, Takahiro Seino, and Kokichi Futatsugi
Abstract—We propose a way to use CafeOBJ algebraic specification language for describing formal specifications of sensor systems and for verifying desired properties to be satisfied by the systems. We give a way to not only verify specifications but also generate test cases from the results of verifications. Although we take a simple mobile device application using an acceleration sensor as an example, our approach may be applied to practical sensor systems.

Index Terms—Algebraic specifications, formal methods, sensor systems, test case generation.
