Test automation system – Proprietarily developed

Quality Commander, developed by Japan Novel, is an automatic test system for embedded devices. Quality Commander has an automatic robotic operation function and an automatic evaluation function for LCD screenshots taken by a camera, in order to test a device in a final release stage for the market.

The robot can automatically operate the touch panel (e.g., flicking, double-tapping, multi-touching, etc.). The evaluation function automatically checks the pop-up menus and scroll menus (their positions are not fixed). The test automation system also performs integration testing with the external devices and software through various I/F.
