Mobile Evangelism Site-Scraping Tool

Android Automation

  • panda robocop tests are the largest offenders for failures on pandaboards. experiments show that many tests are problematic, also that shorter runs are helpful.
  • much work has been done to debug the random reboots on the panda boards. These boards require much less IT intervention than the tegras, but they have 2-3 times the failure rate of tegras. We are experimenting with the power supplies, fuse boxes, and higher guage wires to fix the majority of the problems we are seeing.
  • by the end of the year we need to remove the tegras from Mountain View, this means we either need to rack these, or consider running android 2.3 on the panda boards. Investigation is underway to run android 2.3 on the panda boards by dminor
