Certifying Your Car with Erlang



John Hughes explains how Quviq tests embedded ECU software for AUTOSAR compliance using QuickCheck.


John Hughes is co-founder and CEO of Quviq AB, and the originator of Quviq QuickCheck in Erlang. Before John's involvement with Erlang, he was deeply involved with the design of Haskell from the start, and co-chaired the committee that defined the current language standard.
