Abstract

Testing the functionality of embedded automo- tive control unit in a real-time environment is a dif- ficult task. Testing involves setting every possible combination of the units input and output for each stated behavior. When the stated behaviors of the unit are large the number of unique test cases is exponentially larger, simply due to combinatorial mathematics. Therefore the time to test a unit is also significantly long.
