Tool-Assisted Verification of Behaviour Networks

Christopher Armbrust, Lisa Kiekbusch, Thorsten Ropertz, and Karsten Berns. Robotics Research Lab, Department of Computer Science, University of Kaiserslautern (Germany).   Abstract—This paper deals with the problem of assisting developers when verifying properties of complex behaviourbased systems. A central aspect of behaviour-based systems is the interaction between the behaviours, as a lot of the functionality of a system typically arises from this interaction. Hence, verification has to deal with the specialities of behaviour interaction.
