Abstract

In this paper, we provide a Dynamic Programming algorithm for on-line monitoring of the state robustness of Metric Temporal Logic specifications with past time operators. We compute the robustness of MTL with unbounded past and bounded future temporal operators (MTL\(^{<+\infty}_{+pt}\)) over sampled traces of Cyber-Physical Systems. We implemented our tool in Matlab as a Simulink block that can be used in any Simulink model. We experimentally demonstrate that the overhead of the MTL\(^{<+\infty}_{+pt}\) robustness monitoring is acceptable for certain classes of practical specifications.
