The SOASTA platform that allows testers to measure and review the performance, reliability and tolerances of key aspects associated with the connected car itself.
The idea of a connected car has evolved as new consumer technologies emerge and become commonplace in everyday lives. Tata Elxsi has been working closely with SOASTA’s engineering team to devise the process and scenarios that form the basis of the tests.
"When applied to a luxury brand, the concept ratchets up many gears in terms of the quality, precision and exacting standard," stated Tata Elxsi Senior Vice President Nitin Pai, who went on to say that, by using the SOASTA platform as their test track, the company is able to measure and review the performance, reliability and tolerances of key aspects associated with the connected car itself.
“For such a scalable platform, it is easy to deploy and more affordable and cost effective than offerings from other vendors. The support, professionalism and responsiveness of the SOASTA team has helped us to prepare thoroughly for what lies ahead as we gear up for months of detailed and precise performance testing. We anticipate pressing deadlines that will constantly change as the requirements evolve but we have the confidence, reassurance and knowledge that SOASTA’s performance and analytical platform is more than up to the challenge,” added Pai.
