Paper presented at International Conference on Software Testing
Researchers Sebastiano Panichella and Sajad Khatiri from Zurich University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with Università Della Svizzera Italiana have co-authored a paper presented at the 16th IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) held on 16-20 April in Dublin. The paper titled "Simulation-based Test Case Generation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in the Neighbourhood of Real Flights" addresses the challenges for simulation based scenarios for drones considered in software-in-the-loop testing may not be representative of the actual scenarios experienced in the field. The paper proposes SURREALIST (teSting UAVs in the neighboRhood of REAl flIghtS) as a novel search-based approach that analyses the logs from real UAV flights and automatically generates simulation-based test cases in the neighborhood of such real flights, thereby improving the realism and representativeness of the simulation-based tests.
