Enhanced Test and Verification Capabilities Using Model-Based Design 2006-01-1445
The use of executable models to simulate and design embedded software for automotive systems is well-established in automotive engineering. Leveraging those same models to automatically generate those software components is becoming part of mainstream development processes, using Model-Based Design approaches. Today, the value of these models for testing, verifying, and validating software applications is typically through hardware-in the-loop simulation. However, new and enhanced test and verification approaches are emerging that leverage these models to address today’s complex embedded systems, including both software and electronic components. This paper describes these approaches and their use in Model-Based Design.
