Abstract

Nowadays the increasing complexity of cars has become a major challenge due to the growing rate of electronic components and software. This trend has an impact on all phases of the life cycle of the car. Especially during the process of testing cars and components semantic based approaches can help to increase the automation ratio of testing components and to find the needle in the haystack. Ontologies in combination with rules have proven to check specifications against test results and therefore deliver new insights.
