Driving Experience Control: Validation of Effect Chains

Task:

In order for driving experience controls (eco, comfort, sport, sport+) to function trouble-free, several ECUs for different development sectors such as drive, chassis, and infotainment have to work together. The task was to create a cross-functional validation concept and execute the resulting tests in order to validate the functions of the driving experience control along the complete effect chain.

Content:

  • Developing a validation concept based on interface definitions and specification sheet
  • Elaborating different ECU-specific tests across diverse effect chains and defining corresponding test platforms per test
  • Test execution and analysis as well as documenting the results
  • Repetition of all or parts of the test cases to validate development loops
  • Final acceptance testing in order to confirm customer adoption of functionality

Result:

We have validated various functions of driving experience control across several development sectors before implementing them at the highest quality and on time.
