ZF: Testing Control Software for Hybrid Drive Trains

Transmission maker ZF integrated TestWeaver into its development and test process. Key features of this integration:

  • virtual integration and test of control software using ZF Softcar and TestWeaver.
  • modeling of given system requirements (DOORS, Excel) as system invariants. Validation using TestWeaver. For validation, thousands of driving scenarios are systematically generated and analyzed, all system requirements are permanently supervised.
