Industry has claimed that the root causes for the integration challenge are (i) requirements volatility and (ii) architecture incompatibility of the systems to be integrated. Continuous engineering practices, along with trends like DevOps, have been adopted to address these challenges. In parallel to this, techniques like digital twins have been used in the development of embedded systems. The inherent complexity and size of nowadays' systems motivate tasks like verification and validation in virtual representations of the system, at the architecture level. Despite the adoption of continuous engineering and virtual engineering techniques, there is still a lack of platforms that jointly enable continuous integration verification of embedded systems. To address this challenge, we present the Fraunhofer Virtual Space, which enables the on-line modeling of architecture specifications, and the validation of different system properties, at the architecture level, by means of simulation.
