MUXL Event Summary
Annual Mobile User Experience London Conference

At this year’s 25th annual EuroSTAR conference on software Testing (Copenhagen, Nov 6-9) T&VS will be presenting the following talk:
Dealing With Testing Debt in an Agile World
Companies adopt agile practises in different ways and even more so in the way they incorporate testing in that adoption. The authors of this paper have studied a number of companies using agile practises (such as Google, Spotify, Facebook, Microsoft, Ericsson, Unity, and Panda Strike) in order to better understand the range of testing practices they employ and their advantages and disadvantages. This analysis has then been deployed to help other companies to improve their approach to testing as they also adopt an agile approach.
This paper will report on the main findings of the analysis and the main learnings from working with companies adopting agile and their choices in testing strategy. In particular, the paper will give practical advice on how to both avoid building up testing debt in agile environments and how to deal with technical debt once it has built up.
Mike Bartley (CEO and Founder, Test and Verification Solutions) has been involved in software testing and hardware verification for over 25 years. He started his career in testing of military software and safety-related aerospace applications using formal mathematical methods before moving into testing of commercial software.
Since 1994 Mike has also been involved in the verification of complex hardware and software products going into sectors such as mobile phones, HDTVs, smart cards, avionics and automotive. In 2008 Mike established TVS (Test and Verification Solutions: www.testandverification.com) to offer specialist services and products in hardware verification and software testing. TVS has now grown to a global company of 170 engineers.
Mike gained a PhD in Mathematical Logic from Bristol University. He has since obtained an MSc in Software Engineering and an MBA through the Open University, and is currently studying for an MSc in Computer Security.
Due to increasing unpredictability and complexity of systems, circuit SPICE and Fast SPICE simulation cannot deliver verification closure on time. With the demand to have more functionality in today’s designs, the high performance SoC’s should further accommodate Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) designs. This leads to growing necessity of methodology for accurate and fast verification of AMS designs.

T&VS organized a European DVClub on 12 September 2017 with a focus on “Verifying Analog and Physical Designs”. Speakers were from Cadence, ARM, and T&VS and the presentations are now available on the T&VS website
The Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) Europe is the leading European event covering the application of languages, tools and intellectual property for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits and is sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative.
As a member of the DVCon Europe Technical Steering Committee I’m delighted to share some details of this year’s event, which includes the 2nd edition of Accellera’s “SystemC Evolution Day”. This spinoff from DVCon Europe will take place on the 18th October at the Technical University of Munich.
For the first time, DVCon Europe will also feature a 5G special interest session, with industry experts from Intel, Nokia and Rohde&Schwarz, who will provide insights on the path to 5G, highlight Spectrum opportunities and challenges, and offer also a Test & Measurement perspective for the emerging next generation of cellular communication.
The DVCon keynotes, papers, presentations and panels unite the practical application of state-of-the-art design and verification techniques, applied to a broad mixture of different domains. Primary areas of this year’s program include System Level, Virtual Prototyping, Advanced Verification with UVM and Formal, Design for Functional Safety, IP Reuse, Mixed-Signal and Low Power Techniques.
SystemC Evolution Day 2017
The SystemC Evolution Day is a full-day technical workshop on the evolution of SystemC standards to advance the SystemC ecosystem. This is the second event after a successful first edition in May 2016. In several in-depth sessions, current and future standardization topics around SystemC will be discussed in order to accelerate their progress for Accellera and IEEE standard’s inclusion.
At this year’s AESIN 2017 Conference (Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network) Dr. Mike Bartley, Founder and CEO of T&VS, presented the latest updates on the recently announced CAPRI Project – which brings together an experienced consortium of partners from industry, academia and local authorities to deliver a complete end to end POD (Pods on-demand) mobility service.

About the CAPRI Project
Applying Hardware Verification Techniques in Software Testing?
Constrained random techniques
Compliance to ISO26262
Requirements-Driven Test and Verification
The CAPRI consortium builds upon current research and development work within Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and will take this forward to specify the next generation of PODs capable of seamlessly transferring between the on-road and pedestrian environments and harnessing V2X connectivity.
The consortium aims to collate sufficient evidence from the deployment trials and simulation testing to support PODs becoming a recognised vehicle classification for use on public roads and so enable the next generation of PODs capable of safely travelling at on-road speeds on public roads.
The presentation at AESIN 2017 will first discuss two of the main technical objectives of the project:
Verifying and validating the safety and security of the next generation of PODs for both the on and off road environment.
Collating sufficient evidence to support PODs as a new vehicle classification.
The presentation will then go on to consider the solutions being investigated by the project, specifically:
Security solutions for the main POD use cases
Verification methodologies for the software deployed on the PODs in both simulation and physical test environments
Both of the above activities will be informed by a detailed accidentology at the start of the project

National Motorcycle Museum next to Birmingham Airport
Talk: Verifying and Validating the Safety and Security of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
Presented by Mike Bartley, CEO and Founder of T&VS
The UK has strong credentials in the automotive sector from the University R&D base through to the seven volume car and eight commercial vehicle manufacturers. Times are changing and the race is on. The market winners in this race will be the automotive companies that engage in open innovation practices, developing new partnerships in a technology fuelled eco-system enabled by intelligent systems and connectivity. We are proud to introduce a dedicated UK initiative focused on the accelerated and advanced delivery of Electronic Systems into the car and infrastructure: Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network or ‘AESIN’.
The AESIN Conference 2017, builds on the success in previous years and is now being established as the premier UK Automotive Electronics Conference. This year the organisers expect an even bigger and better show with more than 200 delegates expected and capacity for over 20 exhibitors at the popular National Motorcycle Museum next to Birmingham Airport. Along with headline keynotes from Industry and updates from Government, there will be parallel technical tracks covering the six key workstream areas covered by AESIN which include:
Dr Clare Dixon from the University of Liverpool to present keynote address at Formal Verification 2017 – sharing her experiences from the EPSRC-funded Trustworthy Robot Assistants project
