Testing of Electronic Control Unit Communication Interface

Authors: Petr Šimek, Kamil Kostruk


This paper deals with the problem of testing the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) for the specified function validation. Modern ECUs have many functions which need to be tested. This process requires tracking between the test and the specification. The technique discussed in this paper explores the system for automating this process. The paper focuses on the introduction to the problem in general, then it describes the proposed test system concept and its principle. It looks at how the process of the ECU interface specification file for automated interface testing and test tracking works. In the end, the future possible development of the project is discussed.

Keywords: Electronic control unit testing, embedded system, test generate, test automation, process automation, CAN bus, Ethernet.
