Abstract:

THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP A CONCURRENT GOAL-DIRECTED PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE THAT IS SUITABLE FOR EMBEDDED SYSTEM REAL-TIME MISSION PLANNING. THIS LANGUAGE IS DESIGNATED THE PROCEDURAL REASONING LANGUAGE (PRL) SINCE IT MIXES TRADITIONAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FEATURES WITH GOAL-DIRECTED REASONING CONSTRUCTS IN A PROCEDURAL FORMAT. PRL IS A VISUAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE THAT ALLOWS THE EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF GOAL-DIRECTED SEARCH AND CONCURRENT PROCESS CONTROL IN A GRAPHICAL FORMAT. THE PRL COMPILATION SYSTEM TRANSLATES THIS GRAPHICAL PROGRAM INTO ADA CODE FOR SUBSEQUENT COMPILATION TO TARGET EMBEDDED SYSTEMS. THE LANGUAGE IS PARTICULARLY SUITABLE FOR ENCODING COMPLEX PLANNING SYSTEMS WHERE PERFORMANCE AND PREDICTABILITY ARE IMPORTANT.
