Hwu workpackage commitments

HWU Workpackage Commitments

  • WP7f Hami on Microcontroller

    • new from 11/4/5 meeting

  • WP8 Real Time Computer Vision Algorithms

  • WP9 Basic Language Features


Hwu team

HWU Team

  • Dr Greg Michaelson – PI

  • Prof Andy Wallace – CI

  • Robert Pointon – RA from 1/7/5

  • 2nd RA from start of year 2

  • Chunxu Liu – HWU PhD student

  • Gudmund Grov – HWU PhD student


Work package progress 1

Work Package Progress 1

  • WP7d Hume Model Checking

    • Gudmund Grov paper at ACM ASE PhD Symposium on model checking HW-Hume

  • WP7e Hume Problem Solving Env

    • Chunxu Liu paper at TFP05 on current Hume IDE & HW-Hume to Java compiler progress


Work package progress 2

Work Package Progress 2

  • WP7f Hami on Microcontroller

    • Renesas M32 development kit acquired for HWU & AbsInt

    • Hami successfully ported to development kit

    • now supports memory mapped I/O & interrupts

    • Hami rationalised/streamlined

    • good basis for compilation


Work package progress 3

Work Package Progress 3

  • WP8 Real Time Computer Vision Algorithms

    • motion-tracker completed in C & Hume in Aug/Sept 2005 by Iain Wallace - Nuffield Undergraduate Research Scholarship student

    • 3 Hume versions: rec lists; rec vectors; box vectors

    • all available to EmBounded partners

    • identified Hume language & interpreter wrinkles


Work package progress 4

Work Package Progress 4

  • WP9 Basic Language Features

    • WP7 Java from HW-Hume translation available

      • e.g. full adder; Roscoe railway from CSP

    • WP 8 motion-tracker C & Hume have equivalent behaviour


Current activity

Current Activity

  • finalise/document/distribute Hami on M32 - RP

  • native code compilation for Intel - RP

  • HW-Hume on Isabelle/HOL to prove HW-Hume to Java compiler - CL

  • specification notation for Hume - GG

  • explore TLA & Isabelle/HOL for integrating model checking & correctness - GG


Bae dtc seas

BAe/DTC SEAS

  • funding from 2005-2007

  • develop new vision/control algorithms for land-based autonomous vehicles

  • establish strong time & space properties

  • compare C/Matlab & Hume

  • HWU (GM/AW) & StA (KH)

    • Dr Chen Zezhi – HWU – RA vision

    • Dr Armelle Bonenfant – StA – RA analyses
