A self-learning approach for validation of communication in embedded systems
This paper demonstrates a new approach that addresses the problem of evaluating the communication behavior of embedded systems by applying algorithms from the area of artificial intelligence. An important problem for the validation for the interaction in the distributed system is missing, wrong or incomplete specification. This paper demonstrates the application of a new self-learning approach for assessing the communication behavior based on reference traces. The benefit of the approach is that it works automatically, with low additional effort and without using any specification. The investigated methodology uses algorithms from the field of machine learning and data mining to extract behavior models out of a reference trace. For showing the application, this paper provides a use case and the basic setup for the proposed method. The applicability of this self-learning methodology is evaluated based on real vehicle network data.
