Modern techniques, which include, for example, parameterized tests, are widely spread in the .NET environment, and can reduce the development efforts for the automated tests.
Figure 2: Putting it all together: convergence of automotive and consumer electronics
K2L ATS is well-suited for testing and simulation of the traditional infotainment system as a set of devices that are built into the vehicle and communicate over MOST, CAN and LIN. Some of these devices can have a pair-to-pair connection to the end-user devices, for example, over Bluetooth.
Convergence of Automotive and Consumer Electronics
As has been mentioned before, future infotainment systems require a tool for support of the convergence between automotive and consumer electronics over computer networks. There are several variants of networking topologies regarding how consumer electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops and the infotainment system could be connected. The simplest topology is that the car has its own mobile broadband Internet connection and its own Wi-Fi hot spot. This provides access to the Internet and remote automotive services. Another topology is an analog to the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) concept. Here, the infotainment system has a Wi-Fi network interface and connects to the hot spot provided by the customer mobile device, which has Internet access over a cellular network.
The principal difference between these two topologies is that in the first case the infotainment system communicates with the service endpoints in the Internet directly, whereas in the second case the network
