UKSTAR Online Talk: How To Test A LED-Bar Longer Than The Eiffel tower? | Ard Kramer & Dennis Schouten
Date of Webinar: 13/02/2019
When you visit Schiphol Airport and you’ve took the train to Amsterdam, you may have seen him shining: a LED Bar of more than 330 meters! This bar informs train passengers: where will the train stop and where are the doors? The reason to implement this bar is spread the crowd over the platform in order to avoid dangerous situations on the platform and find a better spot to enter the train safely.
To achieve this situation an innovative product needed to be developed. In one year we had to find partners and with the partner and a suspension construction, the hardware and software of the LED-bar and control software needed to be designed, developed, tested and connected with also the implementation on train station Schiphol Airport.
The presentation will tell you everything about our journey to develop and test such an unique product: – How to develop a minimum valuable product, suited for only train station Schiphol Airport? How to integrate the different parts on a busy train station? What were the (product) risks and how did we mitigate the risk?
- Which (test) problems must you concur to reach the minimal valuable product?
- How to deal with a situation where a supplier has the most expertise of your product?
- How to set up a representative integration test and how to perform this test on a busy location as a train station?
