Automatic Testing of an Autonomous Parking System Using Evolutionary Computation 2004-01-0459
The method of evolutionary functional testing allows it to automate testing by transforming the test case design into an optimization problem. For this aim it is necessary to define a suitable fitness function. In this paper for an autonomous parking system two different approaches for fitness functions are presented, which evaluate the quality of parking maneuver automatically. A numerical analysis shows, that the proposed area criterion supports a faster convergence of the optimization compared to the proposed distance criterion and that the proposed area criterion describes an efficient method to find functional errors in an automated way.
