dSPACE has launched version 5.0 of its AutomationDesk test automation software, which is said to significantly modernize how ECU testing is performed. Its new, unique, signal-based test description makes it possible to quickly create and execute clear, intuitive tests. New features of AutomationDesk 5.0 also enable efficient testing of complex camera-based ADAS.
AutomationDesk introduces signal-based tests, a new type of test description that is as easy to create as if it were on a sheet of paper. The tool’s plotter-like editor lets users intuitively describe stimulus signals and reference signals for simulation variables. The documentation of the performed tests provides a report with vivid plots and parameter information.
The software now also supports the new ASAM XIL standard and enables simulation-system-independent test descriptions and control of electric fault simulation. AutomationDesk can now be used for automated testing in all stages of software development (MiL, SiL, HiL) and with all test systems that support the ASAM XIL standard.
