ABSTRACT
We present an approach to the formal verification of realtime embedded systems by using model checking. We address the verification of systems modeled in a timed Petri net representation and introduce a technique for reducing verification complexity. We translate the Petri net based model into timed automata and make use of available model checking tools to prove the correctness of the system with respect to design properties expressed in the temporal logics CTL and TCTL. Experimental results demonstrate considerable improvements in verification efficiency when the degree of parallelism of the system is considered.
