Title: Timed interfaces
Title Series: LNCS
Abstract: We present a theory of timed interfaces, which is capable of specifying both the timing of the inputs a component expects from the environment, and the timing of the outputs it can produce. Two timed interfaces are compatible if there is a way to use them together such that their timing expectations are met. Our theory provides algorithms for checking the compatibility between two interfaces and for deriving the composite interface; the theory can thus be viewed as a type system for real-time interaction. Technically, a timed interface is encoded as a timed game between two players, representing the inputs and outputs of the component. The algorithms for compatibility checking and interface composition are thus derived from algorithms for solving timed games.
