Testing Embedded Systems and the Internet of Things (IoT)

The latest issue of LogiGear Magazine is out!

In this issue, Michael Hackett discusses the landscape of the Internet of Things (IoT) with Joe Luthy; Jon Hagar gives expert recommendations for testing the IoT; understanding new areas for traditional testers working in the IoT; Phillip Koopman suggests that those performing embedded testing have software specific test plan; Auriga’s Andrey Pronin writes about the importance of a highly organized testing process and Essensium/Mind’s Arnout Vandecappelle reminds us that team collaboration is essential for testing embedded systems.

“Testing Embedded systems and testing the Internet of Things could each have their own issue of LogiGear magazine. But these days they are referred to presupposing knowledge of the other, so we thought it would be a good idea to tackle the two together in this issue to give a broad understanding of the landscape as well as help you get started testing smarter and become more informed,” offers Michael Hackett in his Letter from the Editor.

“The Internet of Things (IoT) is getting more and more press and attention every day. There is nothing new about the idea, everyone knew it was “the future.” But that future is here.  Efficient wireless protocols, sensors to sense everything, and cheaper processors are making the future now. The number of things with embedded systems is already staggering, and it’s estimated  there will be tens of billions of embedded system devices connected by 2020.
