Abstract: The analysis of real-time systems designed by architectural languages such as architecture analysis and design language (AADL) is a challenging research topic. In such a context, formal methods become an advocated practice in software engineering for rigorous analysis. Yet, they are applied on specific formalisms to be analysed on dedicated tools. This paper studies the formal verification of real-time systems modelled with the AADL language and its behaviour annex. We define a formal semantics of an AADL behavioural subset using the LNT language. This work is illustrated with a robot case study.
