Integration of UX Into HW/SW Co-Design Analysis Infrastructures with Andreas Aal | #QtWS23

Abstract Using virtual environments in flight and driving simulators is an established way to derive design and test relevant use cases and correspondingly expected system behavior during application development. However, generally, corresponding simulations reflect the targeted ideal behavior of systems while SW bugs can of cause lead to deviating results. Our approach intends to combine HW and SW development environments of various abstraction levels down to real HW behavior interacting with original operating system SW and application SW. As the output of such simulations is usually complex and illustrated through signal traces, task graphs, core load charts etc., we instead apply such outputs into a dedicated feedback loop within UX environments enabling to experience the very complex interaction effect of injected HW faults, security threats etc. within real driving scenarios.
