IoT as a new challenge for testing
The Challenge: More and more devices are connected with the Internet.
The internet has integrated into all aspects of our daily lives. Similarly, intelligent factories and cyber physical systems are evolving our working lives and forming the next industrial revolution known as “Industry 4.0”. All objects today are being used differently than what we’re used to. While users are used to loading times of software, they would be against waiting for objects that in the past have worked immediately, such as the lock on their front doors. In addition, these high-tech versions of day to day objects need to work without an internet connection.
The Solution: High-tech versions of day to day objects need to be intuitive.
As a consequence, IoT testing needs to be approached professionally. In this fledgling market, there are new aspects regarding quality that manufacturers need to take into consideration. Thus, make sure that your digital products function in the real world as they do in laboratory environments.
The types of apps we test
Intelligent thermostats, WLAN-enabled sockets, surveillance cameras… The Internet of Thing is evolving our homes. Household objects and appliances are now going online and communicating with each other as well as with you through apps. This has turned smartphones and tables into the universal remote of the future.
Vehicles, today, are also connected to the internet through complex systems. This can help you in many different ways, such as an app that reminds you where your parking space or shows you important traffic information on a screen on your steering wheel. In the future, this kind of data will also help control traffic congestion.
Vacuum cleaners, smart TVs, vacuum cleaners and fridges, the possibilities are endless. We can now check the content of our fridges while being in the supermarket or turn on our vacuum cleaning robot while sitting in the office. Similarly, wearables are steadily growing in popularity.
