How To Test A LED-Bar Longer Than The Eiffel Tower?
When you arrive at Schiphol Airport and take the train Amsterdam, you may have seen a shining a LED sign 330 meters long! This bar informs train passengers: where the train will stop and where the doors will open. The reason to implement this sign was to spread the crowd along the platform in order to avoid dangerous overcrowding situations. It helps passengers to board the train safely.
To achieve this goal, an innovative product needed to be developed. In just one year we had to find partners. The hardware and software of the LED-bar and control software also needed to be designed, developed, tested and connected. We then needed to implement at the Schiphol Airport train station.
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 Schiphol Airport train station. How to integrate the different parts in 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?
