ROOP (Real-Time Object-Oriented Programming) is a software development approach and a programming language. The idea behind ROOP is to allow developers to implement real-time systems using object-oriented methodology without unnecessary overhead. It's designed for safety-critical applications in industries such as aviation, automotive, and medical devices. ROOP enforces good design principles like encapsulation and composition while allowing developers to express timing behavior directly in their classes' interfaces using pre- and postconditions statements. Timing properties can be specified as part of class interfaces, which are then verified against the system model either statically or dynamically at run-time, reducing the likelihood of errors that could lead to critical failures in real-world scenarios.
