Hardware in the Loop Test in Combination with Continuous Integration
In contrast to the increasing complexity, the available development time decreases. This makes it necessary to carry out tests in ever shorter time. Ideally, the tests should be carried out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is not possible with a purely manual setup of the test systems, manual test start and manual evaluation of the results. Therefore, the connection of the HIL test with continuous integration systems (such as Jenkins or Hudson) is necessary. This article shows the integration between Continuous Integration Systems and HIL test systems. Problems and challenges in the integration of HIL test systems with Continuous Integration Systems are discussed. The automatic setup of the test systems, the automatic setup of the device under test (e. g. flashing the software) and the test start are displayed. Furthermore, the automated evaluation of the test results is also displayed. The experience gained from various real-life test projects will be presented and the advantages of Continuous Integration in connection with the HIL test will be demonstrated. In various projects, it was possible to achieve a 100% automation of the setup of the test systems and the test object. Furthermore, the test start and execution is 100% automated. In addition, the feedback of the test results into the Continuous Integration Systems could be fully automated. The evaluation of the test results must of course continue to be carried out by experienced developers and testers.
