Internet of Things and its impact on Testing
Unlike smart phones and their apps, smart devices in many cases don’t rely on a human’s input or report their findings to a human. Some smart devices receive their information from other smart devices and act on their own according to their programming. It goes far beyond simply receiving information; the smart devices also analyze the data they receive and make decisions.
In order for these devices to work properly, it requires rigorous testing. The testing process itself must change to reflect the new realities of interconnected, specific smart devices. Testers and quality assurance professionals will have to account for the data input from accelerometers, gyroscopes, ambient light sensors, altimeters, GPS locators, and myriad other types of sensors and to test the boundaries of that input.
