In recent times, the number of features within a modern-day premium automobile has significantly increased. The majority of them are realized by software, leading to more than 1,000,000 LOC ranging from keeping the vehicle on the track to displaying a movie for rear seat entertainment. The majority of software modules need to be executed on embedded systems, some of them fulfilling mission-critical task, where a failure might lead to a fatal accident. Software development within the automotive industry is different from other industries or open source, as there are more restrictions upon development guidelines and rather strict testing definitions to meet the quality and reliability requirements or even ensure traceability on defect liability. To meet these requirements, various tools and processes have been integrated into the development process, delivering document metadata which can be used for further insights, for example, Software Fault Prediction (SFP).
