A Spin-based model checking for the simple concurrent program on a preemptive RTOS.

Bow-Yaw Wang, Huang, Ching-Chun, Chen-Kai Lin

We adapt an existing preemptive scheduling model of RTOS kernel by eChronos from machine-assisted proof to Spin-based model checker. The model we constructed can be automatically verified rather than formulating proofs by hand. Moreover, we look into the designs of a Linux-like real-time kernel--Piko/RT and the specification of ARMv7-M architecture to reconstruct the model, and use LTL to specify a simple concurrent programs--consumer/producer problem during the development stage of the kernel. We show that under the preemptive scheduling and the mechanism of ARMv7-M, the program will not suffer from race condition, starvation, and deadlock.
