Embedded software organizations have always taken a ‘shift-left’ approach to software quality, rigorously applying defect prevention techniques early in the lifecycle. The demand for IoT requires a new testing paradigm that more closely resembles the challenges that Enterprise IT have faced for decades. 

As enterprise IT struggles to ‘shift-left’, embedded systems are struggling to ‘shift-right’ by testing more componentized and distributed architectures

In this paper, we will discuss how to implement lessons from enterprise software development to overcome the challenges the changing world of embedded software engineering presents. As we discuss these concepts within the context of automotive software engineering, you will learn how to:

  • Combine data from coverage analysis and message layer testing technologies, which provides insight into application readiness and traceability across testing practices.
  • Emulate dependent systems with service virtualization, which removes testing constraints and increases flexibility across complex test environments.
  • Test at scale when scalable hardware is unavailable or impractical.
  • Leverage penetration testing techniques to expose security vulnerabilities and trace their impact directly to the code base.
