Continuous integration applied to software-intensive embedded systems – Problems and experiences
Paper i proceeding, 2016

In this paper we present a summary of factors that must be taken into account when applying continuous integration to software-intensive embedded systems. Experiences are presented from two study cases regarding seven topics: complex user scenarios, compliance to standards, long build times, many technology fields, security aspects, architectural runway and test environments. In the analysis we show how issues within these topics obstruct the organization from working according to the practices of continuous integration. The identified impediments are mapped to a list of continuous integration corner-stones proposed in literature.
