Testing Embedded Systems


In this seminar, we will discuss various methods that can be applied for testing embedded systems. Some of these techniques are already being applied within the industry, others are still being applied within the area of research.

In this lecture, we will take a look at the following methods (among others):

  • Hardware In the Loop (HIL)
  • Software In the Loop (SIL)
  • Model In the Loop (MIL)
  • Model Checking
  • Theorem Proving
  • Simulation
  • Software Testing
  • Model Driven Testing


This seminar is arranged as a block seminar. The first meeting will take place at the end of the semester holidays or in the first week of the winter term. The actual block seminar will most probably take place in february 07. There will be deadlines in between that have to be met.
