Formal assessment of some properties of Context-Aware Systems

Fabio A. Schreiber, Maria Elena Valcher

Context-Aware systems are becoming useful components in autonomic and monitoring applications and the assessment of their properties is an important step towards reliable implementation, especially in safety-critical applications. In this paper, using an avalanche/landslide alert system as a running example, we propose a technique, based on Boolean Control Networks, to verify that the system dynamics has stable equilibrium states, corresponding to constant inputs, and hence it does not exhibit oscillatory behaviors, and to establish other useful properties in order to implement a precise and timely alarm system.
