Automotive Software Testing is a vital part of the automotive systems development process. Not identifying the critical safety issues and failures of such systems can have serious or even fatal consequences. As the number of embedded systems and technologies increases, testing all components becomes more challenging. Although testing is expensive, it is important to reduce bugs in an early stage to maintain safety and to avoid recalls. Hence, the testing time should be reduced without impacting the reliability. Several studies and surveys have prioritized Automotive Software Testing to increase its effectiveness. The main goals of this study are to identify: (i) the publication trends of prioritization in Automotive Software Testing, (ii) which methods are used to prioritize Automotive Software Testing, (iii) the distribution of studies based on the quality evaluation, and (iv) how existing research on prioritization helps optimize Automotive Software Testing.
