Automatic software tests
Every night we create a current version of our software (“Nightly“) using the current sources. This includes
- Our driver interface (mvIMPACT Acquire),
- Our image processing library (mvIMPACT SDK) and
- The firmware of the cameras.
Afterwards, the result will be installed and tested on our test system. This system includes more than 500 different single tests like the exposure time check. For example if you double the exposure time, you should see this in the image data.

„Every day we get the latest and tested version of our software. If a nightly has an error, the development department is informed automatically so that they can fix it. This automatism speeds up the development cycles and at the same time it improves the quality of our software. On top of everything, the developer can focus on programming and does not have to take care of organizational things.“
