Maximizing test efficiency by unifying replay and HIL
Validating perception algorithms running on ADAS ECUs remains the most crucial puzzle piece in the connected ADAS and AD validation workflow to ensure safe and reliable vehicles reach the market. Replaying and resimulating recorded data sets from the field all the way up to closed-loop HIL techniques are common best practices. Unifying hardware configurations and test automation infrastructure can reduce capital equipment cost and improve test coverage and efficiency. Techniques like scenario coverage analysis and requirements analysis can be added to make the test approach even smarter. A common replay and HIL infrastructure provides a path to dynamic test deployment.
