In this webinar we have a moderated discussion about the practical application of formal verification technologies in MATLAB® and Simulink®. MathWorks engineers introduce the topic of formal verification and answer your questions.

Formal verification methods have been in use in software engineering since the 1970s. Their use, however, is often limited to specialized environments and research projects. In hardware design, such tools have already entered industry mainstream; new tools and integration with simulation and other existing technologies promise to make a mark in embedded software design and verification.

Applications of formal verification in embedded software today include:

  • Verification of designs against functional requirements
  • Design error detection
  • Test generation
  • Model coverage analysis
  • Run-time error detection
  • Proving the absence of run-time errors
