SystemC Test Case Generation with the Gazebo Simulator

Thomas W. Pieber, Thomas Ulz, Christian Steger

Abstract

The current approach of hardware simulators are testbeds that supply the Device under Test (DUT) with inputs. These sequences of inputs are the result of engineers reverse engineering the use cases extracting the inputs from them and adding some extreme cases. This paper describes an approach where the input sequences are generated directly from the use case itself. The use case is therefore simulated in an environmental simulator such as Gazebo. This generates the stimuli for the DUT. To facilitate the compatibility between the different simulation environments we present an easy-to-use and easy-to-implement communication strategy.
