INTESYS: Model-Based Test Generation for the Efficient Test of Hardware/Software Systems

Functionality in embedded systems is more and more realized by integrated hardware / software systems. Typically, these systems are strongly coupled with technical processes, as for instance the control of a vehicle, which show time-dependent, discrete-continuous dynamics. Testing for the correct functionality of their according design as well as of the final product contributes large sums to the production costs due to its complexity. An efficient method is required for the integrated test of hardware and software in these systems, which respects all the aspects of validation, debug, test and diadnosis.

Model-based development and test gains importance in research and also in industrial practice, as they support the systematic, stepwise refinement of requirements down to the implementation. By using models to describe the functionality of integrated hard- and software systems a higher efficiency of their test can be achieved. The central goal of this project is the generation of tests for the functionality and structure of an embedded hardware / software system from its system model along with an automatic evaluation and failure diagnosis.
