Description

As a result of technological demands and advances, model based testing (MBT) using real-time embedded software (RTES) is slowly replacing the traditional methods of real time embedded systems testing and development. Although MBT is being used to accelerate the manufacturing process, much research is still needed since MBT is still a newer concept to most electrical engineers. The purpose of this research is to find a new type of testing method that is more accurate and takes shorter time to complete. The economical aspect of MBT with RTES shows the fact that it comes equipped with the commonly used products or parts and this eliminates the need for separately purchasing and mounting various parts into the system. Probability of accidents occurring during a MBT testing is zero since it uses computer interface. The procedure is brilliantly simple. The first step is to determine all the physical specifications of the product. In this case, the product used to verify the stated method will be a robotic arm. Step two is creating a virtual model or geometry of the product. Now, real-time simulations of the product can be executed. After the simulations are successfully executed, a hardware robotic arm will be purchased. The part will then be modified to meet the virtual specifications and it is run using Labview software. Results from both the virtual and hardware based testing are finally compared in the last step to determine the accuracy and efficiency of the whole procedure.
