What is this project?

DAV (Decentralized Autonomous Vehicles) is a new foundation working to build an open-source infrastructure for autonomous vehicles (cars, drones, trucks, robots, and all the service providers around them) to communicate and transact with each other over blockchain.

As an organization that believes in building a large community of open-source contributors, we often create issues like this one to help people take their first few steps into the world of open source.

Mission Control

The DAV project you are looking at is Mission Control. It is the brain in charge of orchestrating missions between DAV users and autonomous vehicles.

How you can help


To help developers building on top of DAV technologies, Mission Control can start in a simulation environment. In a simulation environment, there are always a few simulated drones flying around the user, ready to take on missions. This makes it easy for developers to start building and testing without investing in hardware.

The Issue

As a project that relies on a large community of contributors, it is very important for us to have good tests to make sure changes don’t break anything.

One of the functions that need testing is randomMissionsCompleted() inside /server/simulation/random.js that creates random number of missionsCompleted and missionsCompleted7Days.

The task for this issue is to test the functions return value to make sure

  • it returns an object

Edit test/specs/simulation.random.spec.js, adding a describe block for randomMissionsCompleted() and within it one test that verify the condition mentioned above.

To run your tests, run npm test from the project’s root directory. All tests should pass.
