The Internet of Things (IoT) aims to change many aspects of people’s daily lives by extending the scope of computing to the physical world, and thus shift the environment of computing more to a distributed and decentralized form. The amount of IoT devices and their collaborative behavior causes new challenges to the scalability of traditional software testing, and the heterogeneity of IoT devices increases costs and the complexity of coordination of testing due to the number of variables. In this paper, we introduce IoT Testing as a Service- IoT-TaaS, a novel service-based approach for an automated IoT testing framework aims to resolve constraints regarding coordination, costs and scalability issues of traditional software testing in the context of standards-based development of IoT devices, and explore its design and implementation. IoTTaaS is composed of remote distributed interoperability testing, scalable automated conformance testing, and semantics validation testing components adequate for testing IoT devices. To provide a conceptual overview, we analyze its technical and systemic advancement and compare it to traditional testing with concrete examples…
