How Does Testing for Connected Cars Work?

Connected cars are extremely complex in terms of testing and QA, yet these points cannot be overlooked. The article focuses on the mechanisms of data exchange in connected vehicle technology and lines up types of testing applicable to connected cars, such as on-road, virtual environment and in-laboratory testing. Moreover, various systems of connected vehicles are also separate subjects of testing, so QA engineers use performance, interoperability, and other types of testing.
