Verification and Validation for Intelligent and Trustworthy Autonomy Laboratory (VeriVITAL)

Location: ERB105B

Leading Faculty:Taylor T. Johnson

Mission: Software defects in embedded systems are rampant and are becoming more prevalent as exemplified by frequent product recalls in industries like automotive, medical devices, telecommunications, and industrial control systems. Defects in such cyber-physical systems (CPS) often result from the interaction of cyber and physical components in the systems. In VeriVITAL, we develop new automated formal verification and validation (V&V) methods at the intersection of software engineering and embedded systems to ensure CPS meet their specifications. VeriVITAL makes fundamental advances in techniques and tools from hybrid systems, formal methods, and model-based design applied to CPS application areas such as power/energy, robotics, and transportation systems.
