Continuous integration and continuous delivery based on ARM Cortex-M4 embedded software automation testing

This paper explores in depth how automated testing can be seamlessly integrated into the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI / CD) process of embedded systems to improve development efficiency and software quality. Based on the comprehensive analysis of the existing embedded system development methods and testing processes, an innovative automated test integration strategy is proposed to meet the growing market demand and increasingly stringent quality standards. This paper also shows the effect of this strategy in detail through the application cases of practical projects, and summarizes the valuable lessons learned. This study aims to address key challenges in the development of embedded systems, including long-cycle development, quality management difficulties, and poor collaboration. By seamlessly integrating automated testing into the CI / CD process, development cycles can be successfully shortened, improve software quality, and improve collaboration between teams. In the experiment and results sections, the design and execution of the experiments are described in detail, demonstrating the remarkable efficiency and effects of the CI / CD flow. Example validation further confirms the idea and provides strong support for the strategy. In the discussion, the significance and impact of the experimental results are analyzed in depth, and the advantages and challenges of automated testing in CI / CD are explored. The embedded system development industry is encouraged to adopt this strategy to meet the rapidly changing market demand, improve software quality, and achieve higher customer satisfaction. Finally, in the conclusion section, the main findings and contributions of the paper are summarized, and the importance of integrating automated testing into the development of embedded systems is highlighted. Future research directions and improvement strategies are proposed to continue driving innovation and progress in embedded system development. This paper provides valuable insights and guidance in the field of embedded systems development, hoping that more studies and practitioners to focus on the application of automated testing and CI / CD processes will contribute more innovative and optimized approaches to the future development of embedded systems.
