Do any Huddle members have experience testing wearables or other devices for IoT? Is it an immediate challenge for many testers or something that’s coming “down the track”? For example are there protocols and (dare I say it ) standards or is testing IoT less structured?May 11, 2016 at 10:05 pm #11824
IOT is a big world and testing for these products is yet to get matured. I had chance to test Playstation, smartphone, Smart TV, Google Chromcast, wearable, Apple TV and we are currently exploring Raspberry pie, Android Auto, Apple Car Play and some Home Automation iOT products/softwares. As there are many different types of applications coming under the umbrella of iOT, product learning is one of the important part before reaching to so called BEST PRACTICE.
It is good to know about protocols used for Internet of the things as many apps may have very limited interface to test on and testing such kind of solutions will definitely require knowledge of the protocol. Zigbee, Sigfox, newul, MQTT, CoAP are some of the protocol worth giving a try to learn.May 12, 2016 at 9:13 am #11835
Hi @anurag-khode, thanks for the input – would you say that the limited interface makes testing easier or more difficult?May 12, 2016 at 11:39 am #11844
I was pointing to Limited User interface…So the testing is easier if you know the protocol and functioning in the background rather than just UI and difficult to test if you don’t know anything about what is happening behind the limited UI available for testing.June 1, 2016 at 7:24 pm #12195
Recent post I published on testing wearables – you might find it useful

7 months on from that blog post do you feel the same about wearables? Is testing of wearables more pervasive now than 12 months ago?August 16, 2016 at 3:39 pm #13405
We seen a lot of transition toward wearables and IOT devices throughout the last 8 months
I have seen usage in the health industry, fitness and payment fields to support the trend. The IOT/Wear devices are starting to become an equal citizen in the overall digital landscape as an extension for Smartphones and tablets.June 18, 2017 at 8:20 am #16487
