It’s early days for the Internet of Things, but the largest technology players are moving quickly to stake out the territory and those working in the mobile testing world are already aware of the immense challenges that these developments will bring with them.
SeeTest, a leader in the mobile testing, monitoring and performance field, is increasingly being used for the testing of small-footprint Android agents, primarily in the healthcare and retail industries.
“I am excited to announce Experitest’s support of Internet of Things systems, including Android Wear,” said Tal Barmeir, CEO of Experitest. “We recognize the fast-approaching Internet of Things reality and this a step in the direction of ensuring that this reality will function smoothly and securely.”
There is already, and will only be more and more of a need in the future, to test many small-footprint devices that are interconnected including the ability to control them even though they have little processing power and support for the different functions they have.
The Internet of Things is gaining momentum and the testing world should already be gearing up.
Among the unique testing characteristics of Internet of Things devices are:
– Small-footprint devices
– Mainly Android-based
– Vertical segments such as Healthcare and Retail
– End-to-end testing requirement (full system: main central hub and peripheral devices)
– Testing various connectivity types including Bluetooth and WiFi
Critical success factors in testing Internet of Things include:
– Support for all connectivity types including WiFi, Bluetooth and USB
– Support testing of non-standard objects (e.g. non-standard controls)
