Project Universal Terminal (UT 3) ramps up in 2020
Project activities for the UT 3 ISOBUS functionality conformance test have received much interest for the past few years. In January 2020 a face to face meeting was held Osnabruck to align the project activities under one project charter and a single project lead. Sven Mindrup, Laboratory Manager at the ISOBUS Test Center in Osnabrück, has accepted role of project lead for the newly aligned UT 3 project to implement a conformance test for the UT 3 functionality and align the AEF Guideline.
The UT 3 Project is comprised of three sub-projects: (1) CAN based tests; (2) automation and extension of the graphical tests; and (3) an upgrade of the existing Object Pool validation tool used in the test. Test specification and implementation are outsourced to AEF development partners, while the AEF project team works on test requirements and acceptance testing and reviews of supplier deliverables, and maintaining the Guideline.
More engineering support is needed in this project which has ramped up its activities in 2020. The pool validation subproject is currently nearing completion but the Graphical Tests and CAN based test implementation will continue development in 2021. The project is expected to run to completion in the first quarter of 2022. Interested individuals from AEF member companies are warmly invited to join the UT 3 project team and support the great work they are doing.
