Modern cars comprise of increasingly complex electronic devices. Especially for electronic control units (ECUs) in safety-critical application areas, testing must be effective and efficient in the potentially conflicting area of increasing system complexity and shorter development cycles. As a significant enhancement to well-known development efforts according to the V-Model, the use of ECU simulation models at the early stages of development were proposed. These models closely resembled the behavior and functionality of a real ECU in a state-based implementation compliant to modeling standards like UML (Unified Modeling Language). The approach was seamlessly embedded in automotive hardware in loop-based ECU integration and system testing, which allowed for a thorough verification and validation of basic system requirements and test case implementations.
