HiL simulators for automated software testing|by Dr. Thomas Neubert
An automated software testbed for the simulation of electrical faults in the cable loom and their recognition by the control software was developed and built during the software development for a hydraulic excavator. This considerably reduced expenditure on tests for proving safety functions in the event of a fault.
