Working within a UK technology programme (TSB supported) group with Jaguar Land Rover, Warwick University and QinetiQ, add2 was chosen as the test equipment tools vendor to provide next-generation platforms for the validation of design at a system of systems level. This included the creation of a new breed of robustness test equipment for low voltage testing, as well as new generation HIL systems with fully configurable I/O.
Working in conjunction with premium brand Jaguar Land Rover meant that the output from the project would be immediately put into use with a high-end deliverable test system capable of more in-depth levels of systems verification than was previously possible. Warwick University was closely involved with the requirements capture of the project, ensuring real market needs and challenges were addressed via forthcoming products.
One of the key outputs from this project turned out to be low voltage test equipment designed for robustness and standards testing, now called the LVTGO-VBS. This product built on some of the techniques proposed by Warwick University’s International Automotive Research Centre, by first developing an embedded test system using add2 product MICROGen, then by evolving this into a full stand-alone product – the LVTGO-VBS.
This new low voltage testing solution provided robustness techniques not previously available, allowing add2 to scoop the Lord Stafford award for Innovation Achieved following successful completion of the project’s design and delivery stages.
