What impact will the Internet of Things have on software testing? What will change? Just as the introduction of smart phones and mobile apps brought new concerns to testing (including touchscreen gestures, location awareness, and orientation concerns), testing the smart devices in the Internet of Things will require some recalibration as well. Whereas tests that we run against computer software involve keyboard and mouse input, smart device testing must account for the data received from the device’s sensors as well as user input through tapping and typing. Testing “in the wild” will be required.
