Real-time temporal logic reasoning about trajectories of physical systems necessitates models of time which are continuous. However, discrete time temporal logic reasoning is computationally more efficient than continuous time. Moreover, in a number of engineering applications only discrete time models are available for analysis. In this paper, we introduce a framework for testing MITL specifications on continuous time signals using only discrete time analysis. The motivating idea behind our approach is that if the dynamics of the signal fulfills certain conditions and the discrete time signal robustly satisfies the MITL specification, then the corresponding continuous time signal should also satisfy the same MITL specification.
