João Queirós, Chief Research & Innovation Officer at Controlar, demonstrated the practical application of parallel testing and hybrid techniques in the automotive industry.
On November 15th, João Queirós, our Chief Research & Innovation Officer, took the stage at Productronica 23 Forum to share his insights on optimizing automotive components testing using parallel testing and hybrid techniques for smart validation of multi-DUT systems.
In today’s automotive industry, the demand for high-quality and reliable components is paramount. To ensure that these components meet the stringent requirements of the industry, rigorous testing is essential. However, traditional testing methods can be time-consuming and expensive, especially when dealing with complex multi-DUT systems.
In his presentation, João Queirós explored the potential of parallel testing and hybrid techniques to significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of automotive components testing. Parallel testing involves running multiple tests simultaneously on different DUTs (devices under test), while hybrid techniques combine hardware and software testing methods.
By leveraging these advanced testing approaches, companies can achieve significant benefits, including:
- Reduced test time: Parallel testing can significantly reduce the time it takes to test multiple DUTs, leading to faster product development cycles.
- Improved test coverage: Hybrid techniques can provide more comprehensive test coverage, ensuring that all aspects of the DUT are thoroughly tested.
- Lower test costs: Parallel testing and hybrid techniques can help to reduce the overall cost of testing, making them a more cost-effective solution.
João Queirós also presented a compelling use case that demonstrated the practical application of parallel testing and hybrid techniques in the automotive industry. The use case involved testing a complex multi-DUT system consisting of several sensors and actuators. By employing parallel testing and hybrid techniques, the testing time was reduced to one quarter, resources usage was doubled while increasing costs by only 50%.
The presentation was well-received by the audience, who were impressed with the potential of parallel testing and hybrid techniques to revolutionize automotive components testing. João Queirós’s insights will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the industry, as companies seek to adopt more efficient and effective testing methodologies.
