Diagnosability is a fundamental problem of partial observable systems in safety-critical design.

Abstract

Diagnosability is a fundamental problem of partial observable systems in safety-critical design. Diagnosability verification checks if the observable part of system is sufficient to detect some faults. A counterexample to diagnosability may consist of infinitely many indistinguishable traces that differ in the occurrence of the fault. When the system under analysis is modeled as a Büchi automaton or finite-state Fair Transition System, this problem reduces to look for ribbon-shaped paths, i.e., fair paths with a loop in the middle. In this paper, we propose to solve the problem by extending the liveness-to-safety approach to look for lasso-shaped paths. The algorithm can be applied to various diagnosability conditions in a uniform way by changing the conditions on the loops. We implemented and evaluated the approach on various diagnosability benchmarks.
