Ensuring Maximum Quality in the Era of IoT and Wearables
Until recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) was just an idea that techies talked about. Unlike innovations in the past, development and testing of the IoT is significantly more elaborate. After introducing the technology of wearables and IoT, Gauri Arondekar delves into the components and architectures that make it work. Focusing on tools and solutions that accelerate the testing processes, Gauri shares the success story of an end-to-end testing strategy for a leading provider of digital fitness solutions. Gauri describes how her team helped Peloton Cycle ensure an uninterrupted and seamless user experience. The Peloton bike, as part of an IoT ecosystem, required a new testing strategy to achieve the required quality. Automated tests became fundamental to the project, which also required a rapid, comprehensive study of technologies along with out-of-the-box test methodologies to simulate a user’s fitness session. In the course of the project, the team reduced testing cycles from one-to-two weeks to two-to-three days and developed comprehensive test automation for a native app on a custom tablet. Join Gauri as she describes the journey to deliver an IoT test strategy and the challenges they tackled along the way.
