EOLT - EB+ Soft Docking Tests

EOLT - EB+ Soft Docking Tests

The new "EB+ Soft Docking" system supports various hardware and software setups and therefore a detailed test has been implemented in DIAG+ v6.14 to ensure the system is working in line with the user expectation. All test results are finally visible on the EOL test report.

 
 

Note: The screen above shows the final result screen of the EB+ Soft Docking test, details about the test sequence are shown below.

  • this test is primary a component and not a system test, if needed a full system test including brake application can be performed during final "Lamp and Auxiliary tests"
  • during this component tests the normal beeper function is disabled
  • also automatic brake application at 1m distance detection is disabled **)

 

Step by Step - Test sequence (4 sensor system)

Start - Select Reverse Gear

  • if DIAG+ detects that "Reverse Gear/Light" was already active prior to this step the user will get a request to disable it first
  • usually the user will only be requested to enable the "Reverse Gear", like shown here, this powers up the "EB+ Soft Docking" sub system
  • if fitted, the tail lamps start to flash in a frequency corresponding to the measured distance to closest obstacle
 

Cover Sensor - Yellow Channel

  • DIAG+ indicates connected US-sensors by corresponding yellow boxes per channel (in this case 4)
  • cover any of the sensors connected to the yellow channel, use the shown offset to ensure correct location, sensors on green channel will be ignored during this step
  • if sensor coverage has been detected by the system the colour of a yellow box changes into green and the beeper is activated for 1 s to provide audible feedback in an production environment.
 

Cover 2nd Sensor - Yellow Channel

  • DIAG+ indicates previously covered US-sensors by green boxes
  • cover next sensor connected to the yellow channel
  • as before, if sensor coverage has been detected by the system the colour of a yellow box changes into green and the beeper is activated for 1 s to provide audible feedback in an production environment.
 

Cover Sensor - Green Channel

  • after covering all sensors on yellow channel the test continues automatically on green channel
  • cover any sensor connected to the green channel
  • as before, if sensor coverage has been detected by the system the colour of a yellow box changes into green and the beeper is activated for 1 s to provide audible feedback in an production environment.
 

Cover 2nd Sensor - Green Channel

  • cover second sensor connected to the green channel
  • as before, if sensor coverage has been detected by the system the colour of a yellow box changes into green and the beeper is activated for 1 s to provide audible feedback in an production environment.
 

Tail Lamps - Function Test

  • like during whole test the system activates the tail lamps and they should flash regulary now
  • the test step has three result options:
    • OK - in case you see flashing lights
    • Not fitted - in case your setup does not include tail lights connection
    • Cancel - in case the light are not working, this leads to a failed test
 

Beeper - Sound Test

  • for this test the system activates the beeper and you should hear a regular flashing sound
  • as before this test step has three result options:
    • OK - in case you hear a sound
    • Not fitted - in case your setup does not include a beeper
    • Cancel - in case you don't hear the beeper, this leads to a failed test
 

Finish - Disable Reverse Gear

  • at this point all EB+ Soft Docking components have been tested
  • in order to disable the sub system the user has to disable the reverse light
  • from this point the EB+ Soft Docking system is back in normal operation mode (brake and beeper function)
  • based on EOLT settings the program will show the final EB+ Soft Docking test screen (shown on top) or continues automatically with the next EOLT test step
