Automated code inspection and execution for safety-critical software testing
Continuous integration (CI) has become an integral part of state-of-the-art automotive software development. Automated build and functional testing are well-established procedures. To guarantee even higher software quality and safety standards, additional checks can be included into the CI process. Such tests may include pre-build code quality checks as well as resource utilization and timing validation. With the acquisition of the debug tool vendor iSystem, Tasking has extended its product portfolio to cover the entire CI circle ranging from code inspection and compilation up to fully automated on-target testing by means of flashing, test execution and trace-based timing analysis.
