Automating functional testing of complex systems and establishing regression testing capability in a functional safety environment is essential for product and vehicle acceptance and certification.
With millions of lines of code in autonomous vehicles, the establishment of automated testing systems and processes will be crucial considering the safety-critical environment.
Traditional human on-road validation cannot keep up with the speed at which changes occur on a product and the interactions of the systems within the vehicle.
Regression testing of the system of systems within the vehicle is absolutely required in a safety-critical environment.
Input: Hardware and software requirements and implementation
Output: Automated test systems design that eliminates manual steps and re-work
Input: Systems, software, and hardware requirements, business processes, and tools
Output: Verification and Validation (V&V) of systems, including development of test equipment, and processes documentation
Input: Vehicle systems requirements, design, and existing processes
Output: State-of-the-art solution that address the latest standards and regulations
Input: Systems, software, hardware, project management, test tools, and workflows
Output: Definition of an optimized workflow that reduces manual labor, and optimizes the utilization of the tools addressing the state-of-the-art in standards
Input: Systems, hardware, and software design specification and details
Output: Design review with recommendations for solutions
Input: Product design details and requirements
Output: Automated Test Equipment (ATE) usable on the factory floor to automate tests and troubleshoot issues in production
In a world where there are millions of lines of code in a single application, testing has become a critical part of an organization’s infrastructure for safety validation. Test as a service leverages existing test infrastructure and web-based interfaces to help software developers bring new products to market faster with fewer bugs and mitigated risk.
At LHP, we have decades of testing experience and functional safety knowledge to safely and efficiently bring products to the market.
