Validation of future embedded systems

Berner & Mattner Enforces Research on Future Internet Testing

(PresseBox) (Munich/Berlin, ) Berner & Mattner supports the international research project FITTEST - Future Internet Testing. The purpose of the project is the development of new technologies for the automated testing of future complex web applications. The increasing networking of embedded systems with the internet can already be observed today, especially in the steady development of car-to-x services in the automotive industry. The project, funded by the European Union, is scheduled to run until August 31, 2013.

The challenge of the project, in particular, lies in the verification of distributed functions. Their complexity arises from the combination of very diverse services available in the web and the possibility to change these peripherally at any time. The correct and estimated functioning of these systems is to be verified permanently through a clever strategy of continuous tests. The evaluation of the FITTEST results runs in case studies carried out by partners involved in the development project. The project, launched a year ago, has already delivered first findings: The solution for testing web applications mainly lies in the development of improved test methods.

"The automotive industry is not only interested in new car-to-x services, but also in the future integration of independently developed apps into vehicles," says Dr. Joachim Wegener, Head of the Automotive Department at Berner & Mattner. "In the FITTEST project, we are analyzing the combination of systematic and search-based approaches for test case generation. For the function-oriented test, we use the classification tree method by applying e. g. CTE XL Professional. As part of the project, we also examine the application of CTE XL Professional for search-based extensions for test case generation sequences."

Versatile project team

FITTEST is funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme. Berner & Mattner contributes its rich experience in systematic and search-based test methods to the research project coordinated by Dr. Tanja Vos from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. Other participants include the University College London, Universiteit Utrecht, the Italian research institute Fondazione Bruno Kessler, the French developer SOFTEAM, IBM Israel - Science and Technology Ltd. and the Finnish social entertainment specialist Sulake.
