  abstract = {Distributed systems frequently exhibit properties of
     interest which span multiple entities. These properties cannot
     easily be detected from any single entity, but can be readily be
     detected by combining the knowledge of multiple entities. Testing
     for distributed properties is especially important in debugging
     or verifying software for modular robots. We have developed a
     technique we call distributed watchpoint triggers which can
     efficiently recognize distributed conditions. Our watchpoint
     description language can handle a variety of temporal, spatial,
     and logical properties spanning multiple robots. This paper
     presents the specification language, describes the distributed
     online mechanism for detecting distributed conditions in a
     running system, and evaluates the performance of our
     implementation.},
