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.

Beaker Project: Automated Testing at Red Hat - Tomas Klohna, Red Hat
Beaker is open-source software for managing and automating labs of test computers

With Beaker, users and administrators can:
- Manage systems of different architectures across multiple labs
- Maintain an automated inventory of system hardware details
- Provision task execution environments on systems
- Schedule tasks to run on one or more systems
- Store and view task results

Beaker is a mission-critical tool for testing at Red Hat, has been adopted by several partner companies and recently leveraged by the CKI project to run its tests. This talk will give a short product introduction before diving into some areas of Beaker, specifically the provisioning, managing and scheduling part.

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.

Defining a Standard Board Management API - Jan Lübbe, Pengutronix e.K. & Pawel Wieczorek, Samsung R&D Institute Poland
In this session the group will discuss different approaches to the board management or DUT control layer, and how to unity the industry around a modular architecture. The desired outcome is a description of the API between the Test framework (specifically the test scheduler) and the DUT controller, and a set of guidelines for
projects that implement board management layers, so that they can easily be incorporated into multiple CI frameworks.
