AutomationDesk is a powerful test authoring and automation tool for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing of electronic control units (ECUs). AutomationDesk users can create and edit test routines in a graphical format without requiring programming skills.
AutomationDesk’s interface libraries, compliant with the ASAM standards, allow for a seamless reuse of automated tests across different development stages, such as MIL and SIL simulation with VEOS, dSPACE’s platform for PC-based simulation, and HIL simulation with SCALEXIO or any third-party simulation platform that provides a XIL API-compliant interface.
AutomationDesk provides libraries containing a large number of predefined test steps, e.g., for easy access to the simulation model, a Failure Insertion Unit (FIU), or calibration and diagnostics software. With AutomationDesk, tests can be executed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, letting engineers increase test coverage and improve ECU software quality while saving time and costs.
AutomationDesk lets you describe test routines graphically, be it test-step-based test authoring based on library elements, or signal-based test authoring based on stimulus signals and evaluation of captured signals.
