DescriptionSafe Round-Trip Software Engineering for Improving the Maintainability of Legacy Software Systems. In this project we aim at investigating methods and techniques to reverse engineer "formal models" from existing systems based on rewriting logic capturing explicit and implicit aspects of the original system. We claim that by using formal reasoning techniques on top of the extracted models the software engineer can first express a formal property that the system exhibits before re-engineering, and later check it against the re-engineered models representing the system design.

DescriptionComposable Embedded Systems for Healthcare.

Industrial practice shows that it is extremely difficult to keep improving devices by adapting and extending the embedded software. Small changes often lead to unexpected consequences, due to unknown interactions and dependencies between parts of the system. The complexity of millions of lines of legacy code makes it almost impossible to predict the impact of changes. The replacement or integration of new software components often leads to errors that become visible only late in the software development process. This in turn causes a long and unpredictable time to market. Projects can significant exceed their budget and cancelled projects are no exception in the domain of embedded systems.

The objective of this project is to define an integrated set of methods and techniques that supports a systematic “Right by Design” component-based software design approach for complex embedded systems.
