Abstract

We present a methodology and a tool for the problem of testing and verifying that a PDDL planning domain satisfies a set of requirements, a need that arises for instance in space missions. We first review and analyse coverage conditions for requirement-based testing, and present how test cases can be derived automatically from requirements. Additionally, we show how test cases can be translated into additional planning goals. To automate this process, we introduce PDVer, an Eclipse plug-in for the automatic generation of PDDL code from requirements expressed in LTL. We evaluate the effectiveness of our approach and the usability of our tool against the Rovers domain from the fifth International Planning Competition (IPC-5).
