A computer-implemented method for automatically identifying a faulty behavior of a control system. The method includes receiving, at a test processor, a description of the faulty behavior. The method also includes selecting, using the test processor, a goal state based on a heuristic decision. The method also includes selecting, using the test processor, a selected system state. The method also includes selecting, using the test processor, a selected variable to the control system based on the goal state. The method also includes loading, from a memory, a control model of the control system. The method also includes performing, using the test processor, a simulation of the control model using the selected variable and the selected system state as parameters of the simulation. The method also includes determining, using the test processor, whether the faulty behavior was observed based on the simulation.

Embodiments of the invention relate to a method for detecting the critical situation of a subject that comprises measuring a physiological parameter of the subject. The method includes (a) measuring the physiological parameter; (b) calculating a variation rate of the physiological parameter; (c) determining a synthesis variable for the physiological parameter by taking into account both the value of the parameter and the variation rate thereof; and (d) detecting a critical situation from the synthesis variable. Steps (a) to (c) may be implemented for at least two physiological parameters, and the method may further include determining a global decision variable from the different synthesis variables, the critical situation being detected during step (d) from the global decision variable. Embodiments of the invention can be used for improving the detection of accidents or health problems, particularly for the elderly at their places of residence.
