Automation using RobotFramework for embedded device

Submitted by Sriramkumar vh (@srix) on Monday, 13 January 2014

Section: Full talk Technical level: Intermediate Status: Confirmed & Scheduled

View proposal in schedule


Understand Keydriven testing and data driven testing using examples.
Compare KDT and DDT testcases with manual testcases
Walkthrough on KDT and DDT using Robot framework.
Applying KDT and DDT on embedded/hardware projects
Extending Robotframework to support any language or tools like sikuli


Imagine a small team building an advanced router. Probably first of its kind. product stability is of paramount importance. Executing 1000s of testcases after every build not going to work. Not enough time or resource available. For us, test automation is not a luxury it is a necessity. My previous experience in designing an internal test automation framework for Tektronics gave an helping hand.

Am sharing our experience and insights in using Robot framework for KDT and DDT test automation of our product.

I will also share some examples from our test bed.

    This is certainly interesting. Do you have any video of any past sesssion that you have done or any slideshare ?

    Sreekanth, unfortunately I donot have any slides to share. I would only bother preparing a slide if the talk is selected. If you are curious you are welcome to visit our office in bangalore ( and I can share what we had done with Robotframework.
