In addition to test simulations in HiL or SiL environments, the development of safe ADAS/AD systems also requires testing during real test drives. Challenges here are poor network coverage, extreme temperature fluctuations, measurement technology failures and other specific impairments during the test drive. To counteract these negative circumstances and breakdowns, automotive suitable gateways and software solutions are used in vehicles for smart communication and coordination between driver, vehicle and development. Planning tools and remote features support the entire test process. The use of such overall solutions consisting of robust hardware in combination with holistic management accelerates and improves the quality of development.
