Better understanding about the adoption of simulators

We are a team of researchers from the University of Sannio (Italy) that is conducting research on the adoption and use of simulators for developing cyber-physical systems (CPSs). This is a non-profit research conducted as part of the European H2020 Project COSMOS “DevOps for Complex Cyber-Physical Systems”

We would be grateful if you could participate in the survey. It is composed of only 6 questions, and it will take no longer than 5 minutes. Participation in this survey is voluntary and confidential. No personal information is mandatory, and personal data will be treated as strictly confidential.

The goal of this survey questionnaire is to investigate how and why open-source developers adopt simulators, as well as hardware-in-the-loop, during their normal development tasks.

We will store data in compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). By completing this survey, you are consenting to participate in this study.
