Laboratory for Reliable Software (LaRS)
at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Unintended AccelerationLaRS performed the analysis for the US Department of Transportation to investigate if there could be causes for sudden unintended acceleration of Toyota vehicles triggered by software.
NSFLaRS participated in the NSF Expeditions project "Computational Modeling and Analysis for Complex Systems (CMACS)", also known as "Model Checking and Abstract Interpretation" (MCAI 2.0).
DISMDistributed Model Checking extends the popular Spin model checker for distributed processing on multi-core systems and multi-CPU clusters.
FlashLiteFlashLite reliable flash file system brings rigorous software verification techniques to the development of a non-volatile file system for use on spacecraft.
CobraCobra is a powerful generic platform for the structural analysis of source code. The tool is configured to recognize C, C++, Java, Python, and Ada code, but is easily extended to accept also other languages. It is simple to write interactive queries, or to developer checker libraries for scanning code for interesting, unusual, or erroneous coding patterns. The query language supports associative arrays, variables, iteration and branching. (contact: Gerard Holzmann)
