On Thursday, May 8th, 2014, at Oakland University, GL-SPIN and our Gold Sponsor, Broadsword, will host “Model Based Validation and Verification of automotive embedded software” presented by Dr. Subramaniam Ganesan, of Oakland University.

Synopsis of Presentation:

Embedded Software plays a big role in automotive performance and safety. Reliability, real time response,  and analysis of  critical tasks execution time, and critical tasks meeting the deadlines are important for automotive software. This presentation starts with an introduction to embedded software system and covers model driven architecture for embedded software, nonfunctional requirements, verification tools, software testing, validation testing, defect testing, processor-in the loop, model-in the loop, hardware-in the loop and software-in the loop testing.
