The research project “Test the Test” (T3) has set itself the objectives of automatically evaluating the effectiveness of model, software and hardware tests and thereby improving the quality of said tests. With the aid of Fault Injection and Mutations, hardware interfaces, code and system models are deliberately and systematically seeded with errors, in order to evaluate corresponding tests regarding their quality and effectiveness in finding each and every error. The improvement of testing quality helps satisfy the ever-increasing quality demands of embedded systems.
The objective of the project “Automated Commissioning through Persistence of Expert Knowledge” (ACPEK) is on the one hand the automation of fine adjustment of machine parameters through machine learning techniques. On the other hand, expert knowledge should be persisted mechanically in order to maintain it despite the demographic changes. The combination of both aspects makes it possible to simplify and accelerate the mechanical learning process with the aid of expert knowledge. The approach is evaluated on 3d printing that can be seen as a representative of manufacturing processes that are dependent on ambient conditions.
