Standard Test Package suitable to supplement customer-specific extensions
Vector's CANoe software is used as the test and simulation software. CANoe serves as a platform for executing the tests, displaying test reports as well as for implementing the remaining bus simulation and environment simulation for the system under test. The Vector VT System is tailored for this, providing the measurement hardware, interfaces, switching units, etc. In the effort to attain a high level of test automation and wide-ranging re-usability, it is possible to apply tests that have already been written to any conceivable equipped test benches. This is managed by the Test Automation Framework (TAF). The TAF is located between test case design and the test execution environment, and it can be subdivided into a lower layer, the TAF Core, and an upper layer, which provides test functions. The TAF Core represents the runtime environment for developing test functions and test cases, and it supplies information about the test system and cabin layout. The upper TAF layer provides the test functions and represents the actual interface to the test design.
