Automated Testing for Automotive Infotainment Systems
Examensarbete för masterexamen
Embedded electronic system design (MPEES), MSc
With the development of automotive industry, the complexity of infotainment systems is increasing due to the growing number of electronic control units (ECUs). In-vehicle infotainment (IVI) is gradually becoming one of the main features in highclass vehicles nowadays. Automotive companies find it a challenge to test these complex functions for ensuring product quality before start of production. Therefore, it is highly demanded to carry out high volume of infotainment tests by test automation to shorten test cycles, improve the quality and save resources. To address this challenge, one purpose of this thesis is to investigate a suitable area for test automation within the infotainment area. In the first part, a testing framework of an ECU diagnosis functionality is introduced. Test cost and effort estimation is also considered in this part. The second part is to develop a Python script which is applied in an ECU test for communication and surveillance purposes. The outcome of the first task can be utilized as a background material for ÅF business in related areas while the Python script can be employed in a future in-house development project.
