Abstract

We propose a framework for developing and reasoning about hybrid systems that are comprised of a plant with multiple controllers, each of which controls the plant intermittently. The framework is based on the notion of a ``conflict tolerant'' specification for a controller, and provides a modular way of developing and reasoning about such systems. We propose a novel mechanism of defining conflict-tolerant specifications for general hybrid systems, using ``acceptor'' and ``advisor'' components. We also give a decision procedure for verifying whether a controller satisfies its conflict-tolerant specification, in the special case when the components are modeled using initialized rectangular hybrid automata.
