ok I need advice please.
firstly I don’t know anything about programming or software design/development but as you probably can guess already…. I need help designing/programming a software.
I can’t disclose too much information here at this stage but i will do my best.
I came up with a solution for a problem which is in the form of a design/product that consists of a mechanical, electronic and software elements rapped up in one package that has nothing like in in the market.
its the early stages still and I’m working with a design and manufacturing engineer on building the prototype, now I need someone who is very experienced and well rounded to take care of the software solution.
my questions at this stage are:
What is the best reasonable approach to this, I do not have a budget for this project and I’m buying everything needed from a low paid job which is very hard thing to do but i do believe this product will be huge and more appealing to a large market place from multiple sectors. so do i offer the software for a price on top of the product hardware pice that would pay for the developer time when the product launches, or a percentage of the sales or is it unreasonable to ask for such work without budget…how do i go about making this product a reality from the software side.
there are couple of softwares on the market which dose the functions that i need (not the canon example i used below), is it moral, ethical for my team (to be) to use reverse engineering to build the software i need? possibly till i get financed (and it will get financed) then allocate a budget to make this software fully rounded software and add more to it and make it our own!
not sure how i can ask to get a time scale for how long it would take to develop such a program without specifying all i need from it, but lets say its something like canon eos utilities, how much time it takes to develop such a programe (our software isn’t that but the functions needed are close enough to canon eos utilities/in part the software has to communicate with other hardware such as a digital camera-LCD screen, steam live feed, and send video files to the pc via usb..but that's not all we need it to do but I’m using canon software as a rough guide to the size of the project and hopefully i can get an estimate of time.
is it possible for one developer to do this? who i need to look for/what languages?
hope i didn’t sound like a complete idiot but really have no idea how to approach this problem other than putting all i can out there as a starting point.
I have understood, test case can be the cities that are used in the application .
No idea what that means.

Fault covered and time taken to execute a test case
That isn't the point. The point is why is it appropriate to use this in a unit test, especially given that is not only going to be quite difficult to implement but also in that it is likely going to take some time to execute.
Thanks jschell for understanding my question. Do I need to make any changes to the application to use it for test case selection or it can be use directly by assuming cities to be the tests cases.

after asking, where I could put my idea to code project, I were suggested to go here.
The question was here: question[^].
So I just do this. Writing software is a time consuming task. Some software categories would be ideal for time savings. Those categories are business software or software with much repetition (forms/tables/how to navigate).
Another form of repetition is the platform. I see the mobile platform versus the desktop platform. Is there a repetition?
Yes, I think so. When I create a form on desktop to enable editing my addressbook entries, I do the same for mobile devices - I repeat. It is a different platform, but the data is the same and with a birds view to it, all the forms simply show the same - fields to be edited, buttons for save,navigate and so on.
I want to change this a bit and show a way to do this with code generation and modeldriven technologies. Therefore I like to develop a HTML5 mobile application with common use cases to be later used to create templates out of it.
So I search for collaboration on this undertaking and thus I started a kickstarter campaign to try get this backed to be able to contract developers for this project.
It should or better will be licensed under LGPL to enable commercial uses.
I need to know how new Intel (2nd/3rd/4th/5th) generations CPUs execute textual decompression using XMM registers, the penalties on my Core 2 are discouraging so I will be glad to see how optimized for XMM CPU-RAM subsystems perform.
