Development of software tool to perform automatic analysis and documentation for large sets of measurement data

A modern car’s safety and reliability is heavily influenced by the durability of its components and subsystems. These elements’ strength and durability is evaluated with the help of Computer Aided Engineering simulations, test rides on special test tracks and thorough simulations in test rigs. These three types of simulations are sources for data which can be analysed and compared. The data analysis is currently performed using a number of commercial programs as well as manually, which makes the process lengthy and difficult. However, it can be improved by incorporating the most useful analysis tools along with the extra ones which the currently used programs lack into a new program. These tools were put together to form the scope of this master thesis. Its purpose is to deliver a Graphical User Interface based application, which will incorporate the needs of the engineers in an intuitive matter. The software is created in Python programming language together with PyQt framework for GUI implementation. The application’s main purpose is to read measurement data files, perform specific calculations on them and present the results on screen, both in the form of figures and numerical data. Additional functions of the program include creating a sequence of test events and saving the analysis results as an MS Excel file type report.
