Cross-Platform Verification Framework for Embedded Systems [chapter]

Ingomar Wenzel, Raimund Kirner, Bernhard Rieder, Peter Puschner
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Many innovations in the automotive sector involve complex electronics and embedded software systems. Testing techniques are one of the key methodologies for detecting faults in such embedded systems.  ...  Comparing the execution behavior of a program instance running on a certain platform to the execution behavior of the same program running on a different platform we denote crossplatform verification.  ...  Summary and Conclusion We introduced the notion of cross-platform verification for embedded systems. Based on a target source code, a semantics-equivalent model is generated for a host computer.  ...
