Automatic Bootloader Testing - Rémi Duraffort
CI is becoming a standard for many projects with tests running on cloud resources. Thanks to LAVA, running test on real ARM hardware (like rpi, juno, ...) is now way easier and allow to build large testing systems like KernelCI.

However, theses projects are testing either the kernel or the userspace but never the lower software levels like bootloaders.

In this talk we will present some recent improvements in LAVA that allow to build a bootloader CI system on real hardware.

Labgrid: Real-world Examples - Jan Lübbe & Rouven Czerwinski, Pengutronix e.K.
Labgrid provides low-overhead access to a board farm for testing with CI, custom automation or interactive use. It supports controlling boards connected to multiple hosts and is implemented as a Python library with some CLI tools.

This talk will give a brief introduction before diving into some real use-cases from our lab.
Depending on interest and time, we'd show:
- regression tests via pytest
- interactive use with automated software provisioning
- integrating existing hardware control APIs

New Ways Out of the Struggle of Testing Embedded Devices - Chris Fiege, Pengutronix e.K.
Continuous Testing (CT) of Software for Embedded Devices is gaining more and more attention. Pengutronix is currently running 60+ boards for interactive development and CT of Embedded Software. This talk begins with an overview of the equipment currently used in the Pengutronix board farm and takes a look at the (dis-)advantages of the current setup.

Afterward this talk gives suggestions on how the current issues can be solved using custom devices for multiplexing and testing of electronic buses as well as the use of non-USB-based bus systems for controlling the test equipment. This talk concludes with a Q&A where the audience is invited to give a brief summary of their solutions and share their experience.

Test Plan Templating for LAVA - Milosz Wasilewski, Linaro Ltd.
Repeatable testing with LAVA might become a challenge when dealing with a lot of test cases and a growing number of hardware targets. This talk is about proposed solution to this issue. Since LAVA test job definitions usually convolute the test and device part it’s hard to create a templating system that allows for easy test job re-use. Using Jinja2 might be a solution if designed carefully. Presented solution is shared between 3 teams and has a potential of being generic enough for others to use.

SLAV: Test Stack Abstraction Layers - Pawel Wieczorek, Samsung R&D Institute Poland
This session will cover the benefits and consequences of having custom hardware in a testing laboratory as well as using generic, off-the-shelf parts. Paweł will discuss API design decisions for testing laboratories focusing on SLAV test lab stack case. The presentation will also include lessons learned from shifting to a user-centric perspective and possible outcome of such a process.

A Guide to CIP Testing - Chris Paterson, Renesas Electronics Europe & Michael Adler, Siemens AG
The core aim of the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project is to provide support for a selection of Linux Kernels (SLTS) and a reference filesystem (CIP Core) for 10+ years. In order to ensure quality CIP must have a vigorous test setup that is not only be flexible, but maintainable for years to come. In order to achieve this CIP intends to use (and contribute to) existing projects, rather than reinvent the wheel.

This talk seeks to increase discussion and collaboration by providing details on CIP's test infrastructure, both hardware and software, including our gitlab-cloud-ci tool.
