System Analysis

Apart from the mere construction process for systems, analysis of these systems plays an important role to gain new insights into these systems from a construction perspective and to improve their reliability.

Examples of our research in this area can be found in [1] and [2], where communication data from the robotics system is used to construct online fault detection models. Moreover, our system analysis methods are tightly coupled to the aim of actually constructing robotics systems. Therefore, analysis methods are fed back into the construction process. Another example for this approach can be seen in [3], where the analysis of performance aspects of robotics components is tightly integrated into a continuous integration approach in order to automatically detect performance regressions introduced by changes to components.
