Summary: A simplified version of the kernel language SCEL, that we call SCELlight, is introduced as a formalism for programming and verifying properties of so-called cyber-physical systems consisting of software-intensive ensembles of components, featuring complex intercommunications and interactions with humans and other systems. In order to validate the amenability of the language for verification purposes, we provide a translation of SCELlight specifications into Promela. We test the feasibility of the approach by formally specifying an application scenario, consisting of a collection of components offering a variety of services meeting different quality levels, and by using SPIN to verify that some desired behaviors are guaranteed.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 1291.68012].
