A constant growth of ABS-TCS software activities and the resulting demand for software verification lead to the design of a programable verification system.
The system was designed to take up any ABS-TCS controller electrically the same way a car does, including the option of generating every type of fault possible from outside the controller.
To run verification procedures, a simplified test processing language was created along with a real-time sequencer.
Results are acquired by monitoring ABS-TCS-Controler lines, and communicating with the built in self diagnosis of the controller. Additional software exists for the evaluation of the result data.
Runnig fully automated, 350 ABS-TCS tests have already become part of the official software release process.
Built to be easily upgraded and adopted to changes, the system is intended to cope with future ABS-TCS development. It even provides not only for preprogrammed or field recorded test patterns to be run, but also for hazard seeking algorithms to be developed and performed.
