SuitestDrive on Raspberry Pi

Besides using SuitestDrive on a CandyBox, you can also use it on your Raspberry Pi. This way you can easily avoid having a dedicated computer running SuitestDrive as well as you do not need to rent a CandyBox from us in your device lab.

Please check choosing a Control unit to see the supported devices.
