embedded world 2017: Functional test automation with Squish
Safety standards like IEC 61508, ISO 26262, and others require verification of the functional behavior with regards to the safety concept of the embedded system. The ever-growing rise of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) leads to new challenges in the testing process. Long gone are the days when HMIs were restricted to a few hardware buttons and LEDs. These days, customers expect the same convenience and eye candy as they know from consumer devices: touch screens and high resolution graphics including animations. Interactive HMIs with multi-touch user input and animations mean a high degree of freedom for the user and a big number of possible states of the user interface. All this needs to be considered in the verification process.
