Test automation for Android ECU (Electronic Control Unit)


The test automation for our Android ECU today is done using indigenously developed python framework based on google test framework (uiautomator) and pytest.


  • Today test development is not happening in parallel with software development.
  • The test development is tightly connected to the software development and the test is more prone to break due to non-functional software changes. This also demands more time for maintenance of the tests.
  • Not capable of giving on-demand feedback for the developers
  • Questions stability of the test

Investigate different android testing framework on the market and present the Pros and Cons of different framework and its adaptability to our Android based ECU.

Focus may include the topics below:

  1. Pre-build tests using AI (Artificial Intelligence)
  2. Seamless algorithmic locators' system
  3. Auto test maintenance
  4. Capability to integrate into CI (Continuous Integration)
  5. Pricing plan
  6. Licensing terms
