John Deere: Forging new pathways in testing ISOBUS task controllers - Simulations replace inflexible and time-intensive test methods

The inter-system and inter-OEM compatibility of ISOBUS-conformant devices lets farmers interconnect tractors and implements from different manufacturers in any desired combinations. As easy as this may seem from the user’s perspective, the level of effort required in the device development side is high, especially in the testing phase. A look at John Deere shows
that conventional industry methods for testing electronic components are now often running into their limits. An incomparably faster and more efficient means for attaining the desired goal is automatic test sequences with a simulated implement environment.
