Hyper-Connected Apps: Testing Peripherals and Mobile Apps Interactions

Remember how apps used to be? They connected to the internet and incorporated one device at most. Sure, testers had to factor in performance under different usage conditions, but we had great testing toolsets in place to deal with that. Fast forward to the present. These days sensors enable much more diverse functionality from our connected devices or smartphones and that means mobile app testing is no longer just about testing the app. Smartphones now include many sensors that interface with the ecosystem around them. These software and hardware components can all too easily play havoc with the apps themselves. During his presentation, Sivakumar Anna will share the complexity of peripherals testing. He will demonstrate sensor testing scenarios including location, camera, TouchID and Bluetooth. Drawing on his years of experience in this testing domain, Sivakumar will describe current industry best practices, specific challenges and how to overcome them. He will illustrate these unique issues with a case study involving device peripheral automation for one the leading medical device & solution providers.
