Validation of Telematics and Assistance Services

Task:

The validation, accompanying the development, of the functionality and stability of in-car Over-the-Air services. In addition to confirming the functionality of the systems being designed, all existing telematics systems, which provide updates from a server, should be tested.

Content:

  • Test execution for Over-the-Air functions on static test platforms
  • Test drives for confirmation of functionality in customer-oriented operation
  • Validation of network coverage and, thereby, of the availability of online services in different countries
  • Simulation of country-specific requirements, in order to ensure the cost efficiency of special issues in individual countries
  • Monitoring of specific online functions, in order to observe their availability for customers
  • Development validation of newly developed online services
  • Communication und test plan development, as well as support center for integration tests
  • Test and problem management for weekly test events
  • Analysis and mapping of complex error patterns, which contain Over-the-Air components
  • Documentation of test execution including the identified error patterns.

Result:

All updates from the server were rolled out to the customer vehicles on schedule to the release date. The newly developed Over-the-Air functions were validated according to the implementation plan, and the start-up was, thereby, ensured.
