Abstract

We address two necessary issues needed for developing safe and reliable MD PnP systems: robust wireless networking and automated checking for component interoperability and reliability. First, the robustness of a wireless network can be improved by the use of DSSS-CDMA, which tradeoff throughput to achieve higher reliability and persistence of connections as needed. Second, automated checking of components interoperability and reliability can be partially addressed by the use of the Integrated Framework for Assumptions and Dependencies (IFAD) by specifying a machine-checkable encoding of component information, checking interface assumptions, and finding how various environmental changes can impact the system.
