Sayali Kate; Michael Chinn; Hongjun Choi; Xiangyu Zhang; Sebastian Elbaum


PHYSFRAME is a static analysis tool for detecting reference frame inconsistencies and violations of common practices (i.e., implicit frame conventions) in C/C++ projects that build against the [Robot Operating System]( It requires nothing from the developers except running the tool on their project.
