Internet of Things (IoT) Testing: Why Is It So Important?

The Internet of Things is on its way to becoming the largest software development and testing opportunity ever. IoT brings many new items to the table in terms of testing requirements, including some unusual devices such as home appliances, clock sensors, etc. With an effective testing strategy to meet the quality of these various products.


The Internet of Things (IoT) is a key technology for digital and virtual technology. The recency progress on Internet of Things deployments with the rise of Mobile culture have furnish a strong push for IoT to be considered as one of today’s most hopeful emerging technologies. However, the conceptual realization of Internet of Things is far from achieving a whole formation of converged IoT services and technology.

One of the key elements in the IoT go to market way is Interoperability. Interoperability can be extensive as the trait for providing seamless interchange of data, like personalizing services automatically or simply exchanging data in a way that another system can use for improving operation, enabling and creating services, controlling operations and data processing.

How IoT works?

IoT systems include smart devices that are web-enabled and use embedded systems, such as sensors, processors, hardware and software applications for communication, to collect, send and transmit data they collect from their environment. IoT sensors share data collected by connecting to an IoT gateway from which data is sent to the cloud to store or analyze or take specific action depending on the situation.

IoT devices can communicate with other connected / related devices, share information between them, and respond to it if necessary. Users can also interact with these smart devices to access data or command them to perform certain actions.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are widely being used in IoT today to make the data available to users compatible to their individual preferences, thus improving the competency of IoT devices and enhancing user experience.

Why testing is important in IoT?

IoT is a fast growing market. The number of devices and software in IoT is increasing day by day. Delivering robust, high-quality IoT solutions to the market suddenly is a key need for businesses.

The IoT system consists of a variety of devices, applications and data systems that make it very complex and each of these components has different requirements for testing. Lack of interoperability between these components can cause problems. Technology companies develop solutions independently of each other using different platforms and this can result in problems integrating components with each other.

End-users advantage from increasing the connectivity of devices, but this in turn adds complication to the development and testing of IoT solutions. Therefore, to ensure that the product is working as intended, a robust testing process must be implemented that covers not only the device but also the device's interaction with the cloud and mobile applications (including all integration).
