In short: BlackBox is a specialized testing device which houses a robot and a camera to replace human hands and eyes, allowing to automatically test the HIM software in a unified testing environment.
It is extremely flexible and will work with any kind of a HMI display as long as its phyciscal dimensions fit within the device’s limits.
BlackBox is built with test automation in mind, and can flawlessly operate for weeks. Take a quick look what’s new in version 2.0.

BlackBox’s housing is not only preventing the inside of the device from any unwanted light leaks. It is also soundproof. This allows the device to be placed and used next to the user’s desk without being burdensome.
Despite the sound proofing, the interior of the device is still very well ventilated to ensure proper heat dissipation.
BlackBox is equipped with a powerful color CMOS camera, paired with a low-distortion lens for optimal image quality.
The camera mount is adjustable to allow the single focal length lens to cover the complete area of the installed display an thus take advantage of the entire surface of the sensor.
The manipulator included in the BlackBox has the capability of working with both touch panels as well as traditional buttons.
BlackBox is built to last. You can see it and you can feel it.
The frame of the device is rock-solid – only this kind of frame guarantees repeatability of the tests. The device has also an auto-calibration feature ensuring that the presision of touch will remain unchanged even during the longest testing campaigns.
Every individual device is going through a demanding series of tests before we release it to our customers.
