System Testing in a Simulated Environment is becoming one of the bigger challenges moved by companies with the purpose to improve the quality and increase the dependability of artefacts. Moreover, another big challenge faced by them is the achievement of the independent development of software and hardware systems, with the purpose to speed up and reduce costs of development. Besides, software testing remains today a tricky activity that attracts the interest of many researchers and companies with the purpose to refine or invent new techniques and methods to perform the optimal testing on different case studies and conditions.
Nowadays, the execution of testing on some real environments is not adequate because of the impossibility to perform particular kinds of tests that could be destructive for hardware and dangerous for testers. One of the areas that are affected by this issue is certainly the one regarding the production of vehicles that work in critical environments. In this respect, companies in such applicative domain trying to move towards the revolutionary approach to replace real environments with simulated environments.
This thesis presents a survey of existing state–of–the–art and state–of–the–practice testing techniques and methods, a simulated environment derived from a vehicle, and how and in what way it is possible to perform testing on a simulated environment. Furthermore, with the purpose to provide a better understanding of how a real environment could be represented with a simulated environment, an overview of replacement is presented. Besides, according to CrossControl and customers’ environments, limits and needs, a case study has been realized to demonstrate how is possible to design, implement and test a simulated environment.
