Programme

Autonomous Real-Time Software & Systems Testing – A Six Sigma Approach

Dr. Thomas Fehlmann    
Euro Project Office AG - Switzerland

Presentation abstract

For the Internet of Things (IoT), for safety in Automotive, or for data protection, to be legally compliant requires testing the impact of any actions before allowing them to occur. Here, system boundaries change at runtime. When adding a new, previously unknown device to the IoT orchestra, or when an autonomous car meets another, or with truck platooning, the original base system expands and needs being tested before it can do decisions with the potential of affecting harm to humans.

Autonomous Real-time Testing is a framework for testing a system while in operation. It is needed for systems that affect physical safety of humans, or can compromise privacy (IoT, automotive).We use Combinatory Algebra as mathematical theory for automatically extend test cases from a simpler, re­stricted system, to fully cover test stories for a larger, expanded system. The extension works only if testing not only is automated but measured. Metrics must be independent from current implementation and from actual system boundaries.

These metrics for testing are based on the international standard ISO/IEC 19761. Indices for security and privacy protection are also derivable. Theory and implementation approach for autonomous software & systems testing is explained with examples from IoT and automotive.
