Cloud-Based Electronic Test Procedures, Phase II

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Procedures are critical to experimental tests as they describe the specific steps necessary to efficiently and safely carry out a test in a repeatable fashion. The procedure process includes creating test procedures, validating those procedures, executing the procedures during a test, and then analyzing and auditing the results. Relying on paper-based test procedures hampers data collection and distributed teamwork during test operations In Phase I of this project, TRACLabs prototyped a cloud-based electronic test procedure system that provides procedures via web browsers on tablets or laptops and guides the operator through the procedure step-by-step. TRACLabs also implemented a CAN bus interface between its electronic test procedure system and test hardware. This allows data from the test hardware to be displayed in-line with the procedure and for the procedure to send commands to the test hardware. TRACLabs will extend the electronic test procedure system in Phase II and integrate with NASA's AirVolt aeronautics test facility. More »
