For the last two years Elena has been working on an IoT cloud platform for elevator systems as a lead tester in a small agile development team.
Together, they had to face and test quite a range of technologies, from elevator systems of the last century to cutting-edge data transfer protocols such as MQTT.
The list also included:
- CAN bus,
- 3G/LTE networking,
- Raspberry Pi,
- REST и MQTT API,
- serverless architecture,
- AWS IoT.
In the end, the solution they've been working on is now being successfully deployed on client's real-life elevator systems, and the users can access data of every elevator through web applications made by AKQA.
In this talk, Elena will introduce the basic aspects of testing an IoT platform using an example of connected elevators. She'll tell about the practical experience gained throughout the project, about testing the accompanying technologies listed above, as well as about the challenges she faced and how she solved them.
