Simulink/Stateflow (SL/SF) is the primary modeling notation for the development of control systems in automotive and aerospace industries. In model based testing, test cases derived from a design model are used to show model-code conformance. Safety standards such as ISO 26262 recommend model based testing to show the conformance of a software with the corresponding model. From our experiments with various test generation techniques, we have observed that their coverage capabilities are complementary in nature. With this observation in mind, we have developed a new tool called SmartTestGen which integrates different test generation techniques. In this paper, we discuss SmartTestGen and the different test generation techniques utilized - random testing, constraint solving, model checking and heuristics. We experimented with 20 production-quality SL/SF models and compared the performance of our tool with that of two prominent commercial tools.
