Reports where state-machines are used in practise

  • NASA: Read this interesting article on “UML Statechart Autocoding for the Mars Science Lab (MSL) Mission”. This article describes how NASA generates flight code automatically from a state machine diagram. The generated code has been part of Curiosity’s flight software since launch, and continues to run onboard today. They describe how their generated code looks like and shares the lessons they learned. Link to the article.
