Let's get less optimistic in measurement-based timing analysis
Measurement-based timing analysis (MBTA) is a hybrid approach that combines execution time measurements with static program analysis techniques to obtain an estimate of the worst-case execution time (WCET) of a program. In order to minimize the chance that the WCET estimate is below the real WCET, the set of representative execution-time measurements has to be selected advisedly. We present an input data generation technique that uses a combination of model checking and genetic algorithms in order to heuristically optimize the set of measurements in terms of safety.
