SEADA - Self-Adaptive Actors



In SEADA, we propose a framework for self-adaptive systems with a component-based architecture built in Ptolemy II that forms the feedback loop. Our models@runtime are coded in Timed Rebeca. Supporting tools for customized runtime formal verification of these models are developed. Our focus is on safety assurance while addressing uncertainty and responsiveness of the applications. SEADA benefits from using Ptolemy in various ways. Ptolemy gives us the support for modeling cyber-physical systems; hence interaction with the physical world can be done smoothly. Furthermore, connecting Ptolemy actors and Rebeca actors can be done in a natural way, so, keeping the model@runtime up-to-date using Ptolemy event queues takes the least effort. The distinctive feature of SEADA is its actor-based flavor which will reflect in the design of the components of the architecture, the models in the knowledge-base, and in the V&V and formal verification techniques. In developing SEADA models we focus on the air traffic control and flight network applications. These applications are safety critical, and highly sensitive to changes that can occur in the system and the environment.
