Using Hardware-in-the-Loop in Automotive Software Testing

Testing embedded systems for cars is a daunting task. Today’s modern cars can contain up to 100 or more electronic control units (ECUs). ECUs today control essentially every major function of a car, from acceleration to braking. Furthermore, not all of the ECUs are not manufactured by the same company; thus, it may be difficult to start testing until all the components come together in a prototype car—and by that time, there might not be enough time to completely ensure that the car is ready for the road!

Why Software Testing is Crucial for InsurTech Companies

For businesses, new technologies are making it easier than ever for them to connect with their customers. For one industry in particular, the ease of connection between company and consumer provides a particular peace of mind for both parties; this industry is InsurTech. Thanks to these technological developments, customers are not only more easily connected to businesses, but they are getting what they want faster and easier than ever. Does the customer need an insurance quote for their new home? New applications allow for them to receive quotes in a matter of minutes—sometimes seconds! Are they trying to find ways to reduce their car insurance costs? New devices can plug into vehicles and record driving behavior, which then is transmitted to insurance companies to analyse and decipher.
