The Ford Developer Program is happy to partner with the Open Lab Alliance to provide interested Developers the opportunity to develop and test your AppLink-enabled application on a FordDev Technical Development Kit (TDK).

The TDK is the physical representation of what you experience in vehicle. It has the same software, voice command, radio faces and buttons that appear in a production vehicle. A proprietary Ford software program allows a developer to recreate nearly any combination of variable states that a vehicle on the road can enter in order to test the controls of a mobile app, driver interaction and driver effort.

Multiple Ford TDKs are available for application development and testing.  The OLA serves as one of a very few select sites qualified to support the testing and development activity.

NOTE: Please arrive at the lab with all the necessary items for connecting to the TDK.  The following items are your responsibility to bring:  your devices, cables, chargers, and headphones (earbuds), iOS USB connector, and laptop.

Emulate motion of vehicle, including velocity and GPS position, to test behavior and performance of IEEE 802.11p based DSRC radio devices. Regarding HIL (hardware in the loop),  the octoBox can enclose the DUT(s) and emulate velocity based on the motion simulation on the Tass system

The real-world test challenge is uncontrolled RF environment with random interference that can disrupt the test and difficult-to-set-up desired motion scenarios.  The octoBox® completely isolated controlled RF environment can emulate a variety of motion scenarios and velocities while measuring packet error rate of the radio and its behavior in small and large network configurations.

Testing of V2x devices; automotive application performance as a result of communication performance of V2X hardware is difficult and expensive to test in a controlled and repeatable manner using regular field tests.  PreSCan allows reliable modeling of the impact on automotive applications of the performance of wireless communication.

The PreScan-HIL test bench allows the engineer to test V2x hardware using simulated traffic scenarios, where the radio communication between the V2x modules is emulated through the Hardware-In-the-Loop setup. Using our PreScan-HIL desktop setup, the engineer can test application field performance in a controlled and repeatable manner and at much lower costs than real field tests.
