First AUTOSAR acceptance tests defined

LinkedIn +

The AUTOSAR development partnership has released the first version of standard acceptance tests. The acceptance tests, written at the specification level, are intended to validate the behavior of a configured AUTOSAR implementation at its interfaces. Executing these tests validates the interoperability of the AUTOSAR basic software stack-under-test with AUTOSAR application software components or within one vehicle network.

The first release of acceptance tests includes test cases for the runtime environment, basic software services (NVRAM manager, diagnostic event manager, diagnostic communication manager, ECU state manager and communication manager), bus behavior (communication on CAN, LIN, FlexRay, generic features of the communication stack), and bus protocols (transport protocols, network management).

The main goal of the AUTOSAR acceptance test specifications is to save considerable cost and effort in the field of testing activities through standardization of test cases; allowing the exchange of reliable test results. Test cases can be applied once for multiple customers, so they do not have to be executed by both supplier and customer. Common test development and maintenance; providing significant help for users as they no longer have to specify and maintain test cases of their own. Definition of a universal methodology; enabling the extension of the standard test suite with user-specific features.
