Discussion Questions


Consider a car radio with seek, scan, power on/off, and preset station buttons, along with a manual tuning knob and volume control and a digital frequency display. Of the languages and notations for describing behavior presented in this chapter, which ones would be good candidates for describing the behavior of this radio? Why?


Using one of the languages you chose as a good candidate in the previous question, sketch the behavior of the car radio.


Suppose that you wanted to make sure that your car radio did not exhibit undesirable behavior in unusual circumstances, such as the display going blank when the driver turns the frequency knob while holding down a preset button. What languages would you likely use to help in that case, and why?
