Learn about localizing faults in Simulink models at an invited talk, November 1

Learn how new research makes the time-consuming activity of fault-localization aids designers of complex Cyber-Physical Systems with doctoral researcher Niveditha Manjunath.

Invited Talk: Localizaing faults in Simulink models using STL
Thursday, November 1, 2018
11 a.m.
Brickyard (BYENG) 420, Tempe campus [map]


Fault-localization is a very tedious and time-consuming activity in the design of complex Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). The task requires expert knowledge of the system in order to discover the cause of the fault. In this talk, Manjunath presents a new procedure that aids designers in debugging Simulink hybrid system models, guided by Signal Temporal Logic (STL) specifications.

The proposed approach relies on three main components:

  1. A monitoring and a trace diagnostics procedure that checks if a tested behavior satisfies or violates an STL specification localize time segments and interfaces variables contributing to the property violations.
  2. A slicing procedure that maps these observable behavior segments to the internal states and transitions of the Simulink model
  3. A spectrum based fault-localization method that combines the previous analysis from multiple tests to identify the internal states and/or transitions that are the most likely to explain the fault.

About the speaker

Niveditha Manjunath is a doctoral candidate at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and is affiliated with the Vienna University of Technology. Her research interests are in fault-oriented V&V methods for CPS from concept to component design, and in particular in system diagnostics and fault localization. She is extending AMT monitoring tool with the system diagnostics capabilities.

She holds a master’s degree from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.

International Students: Join the International Graduate Preparation Program, August 28

Posted by on Aug 23, 2018 in Announcements, Graduate Students, International Students |

ASU water tower on the Polytechnic campusStarting in a new country can be a challenge. You’re embracing new customs, navigating a new city and learning how to succeed at a top research university. Many of these challenges are made easier by working hard, asking for help and improving your knowledge of the English language.

You might be interested in joining the International Graduate Preparation Program – Engineering!

This part-time program provides you with additional English language and academic support through classes focused on technical writing, graduate presentation skills and effective reading analysis – all designed to improve classroom performance.

Enroll in one, two or three courses based on your class schedule and needs. Each course is six hours per week during the fall semester, and at the end of your study, you receive a certificate of completion.

Submit your application by Tuesday, August 28. Student registration begins the next day, Wednesday, August 29, and the program begins Thursday, August 30, 2018.

Learn more about IGPP–Engineering.

The IGPP–Engineering program costs $1,872 per course, not including textbooks. You will be required to obtain permission from ISSC to attend IGPP while taking classes at ASU.
