Dashboard
Dashboard
The TPT Dashboard is a freely configurable interface for manual testing or for interacting with automated tests.

It is very easy to configure a Dashboard with the individual components (widgets). Widgets can react on the signal behavior. Once the Dashboard is built, it communicates with the system to be tested. This way, manual testing becomes easy and clear. During the test execution, data sources and data sinks can be presented in form of display and control elements.

A license is needed to build a Dashboard in TPT. The system to be tested together with the Dashboard can be exported from TPT and passed on to other persons. To execute the Dashboard file, you need the royalty-free Dashboard Player by PikeTec.

The Dashboard can be used in many test environments like MATLAB Simulink, ASCET, C-Code, or CAN.

Features

  • Comprehensively configurable widgets
  • More complex adjustments by means of Python
  • Automatic EXE generation for MATLAB/Simulink models
  • Manual and wizard-supported export of the Dashboard

Dashboard widgets

  • Buttons and switches in different designs with background pictures
  • Multi-state switches and displays containing different pictures for different states
  • Slide controls and fill-level indicators
  • Digital display, with or without possibility for interaction; with or without enumerations
  • Gauges designed with user specific pictures
  • Color-variable RGB-LEDs
  • Signal diagram
  • Images that can change transparency, rotation and brightness dynamically

Use cases

  • Interactive testing and experimenting
  • A system simulation including the user interface for manual stimulation and observation shall be passed to others for testing and playfully getting a better understanding of the system
  • The test and system behavior shall be observed during the simulation
  • New operation philosophies shall be tested and their acceptance level shall be examined
