At the vehicle level the interactions between the different ECUs is a key area that needs testing. Dana usually assumes the support role in the vehicle integration activity and works closely with the vehicle integrator or manufacturer and suppliers of other controllers. Dana’s involvement may include development of vehicle-level test plans for the controller under test all the way through to test execution and data and result analysis.

Vehicle Integration Testing

These are some examples of vehicle integration tests that Dana routinely performs on projects:

Customer Training

Dana personnel routinely provide direct, in-person support to our customers. This most often occurs during project integration testing phases, as well as at project milestone hand-over. Dana can also provide topic-specific training sessions for customers, according to their project needs. Such training may be related to the off-the-shelf OpenECU™ products, or equally, project topics related to newly developed software or hardware. In-vehicle initial calibration, system commissioning, and manufacturing support services are available from Dana.
