Skruch, P. and Buchala, G., "Model-Based Real-Time Testing of Embedded Automotive Systems," SAE Int. J. Passeng. Cars – Electron. Electr. Syst. 7(2):337-344, 2014, doi:10.4271/2014-01-0188.
The paper presents a model-based approach to testing embedded automotive software systems in a real-time. Model-based testing approach relates to a process of creating test artifacts using various kinds of models. Real-time testing involves the use of a real-time environment to implement test application. Engineers shall use real-time testing techniques to achieve greater reliability and/or determinism in a test system. The paper contains an instruction how to achieve these objectives by proper definition, implementation, execution, and evaluation of test cases. The test cases are defined and implemented in a modeling environment. The execution and evaluation of test results is made in a real-time machine. The paper is concluded with results obtained from the initial deployment of the approach on a large scale in production stream projects.
