Vector and froglogic offer GUI-based embedded systems testing system

1 min read

Vector, a manufacture of software tools and components for the development of electronic systems, and froglogic, which specialises in test automation of graphical user interfaces, have developed a solution for testing GUI-based embedded systems.

Working together, the two companies have developed an integrated toolchain for development and test engineers from a wide variety of industries, bringing together software tools from both the classic GUI test as well as from the ECU test - the aim being to provide comprehensive quality assurance in all development stages.

A common request within the scope of testing distributed systems is the inclusion of the complete system, including the graphical user interface (GUI). To this end, froglogic and Vector have combined their Squish test domain tools for GUI tests as well as CANoe and vTESTstudio for testing embedded systems to enable efficient quality assurance of the complete system.

Based on the open interfaces of Squish and the support of C# in vTESTstudio and CANoe, a plug-in has been developed through which the complete functionality of Squish can be accessed directly from CANoe tests – including image- and property-based verifications, OCR as well as professional UI automation.

With this integrated approach users will be able to realise fully integrated end-to-end tests in which the GUI control elements are stimulated before the resulting effect is verified at the hardware interfaces – and vice versa.

Free demo versions are available to interested parties.
