Take place in our smart miniature living room – Tom van de Ven & Chris den Arend
We would like to create an interactive session around our smart miniature living room. The miniature living room is a custom made box with a combination of custom made and third party hardware. There are several assets in the living room, like curtains, underfloor heating and lamps. Beside the assets there are a few sensors, like temperature and light sensors. Users can remotely control the assets in the room and there is a dashboard with the outcome of the sensor values. One of the speakers (Tom) wrote a book about IoT and testing: IoTMap, this book will be published 21st of April. The miniature living room is a prototype that will be tested according to the method, described in the book. With a layered model of an IoT solution the different aspects that make the IoT solution are categorised and per layer a test focus can be defined. In 5 clear steps an IoT test approach takes shape. Behind the scenes the data from the living room is transported to the Cloud. In this case IBM Bluemix and Microsoft Azure are used as Cloud platform. Both Clouds deliver the same functions, so the benefits of each Cloud platform are visible. Attendees will see and feel that an IoT scenario uses a great diversity of technologies. After this session it’s clear how to test such a scenario. Furthermore, the complete scenario, from hardware to Cloud and back, is shown and best practices are clear.
