Can Your Smart Assistants Work With Other Devices? A Test Analysis from Allion's Interoperability Validation2018 2018-07-24
As we mentioned in last article: Smart Enough? The Three Most Frequent Issues in Smart Assistant Applications, smart assistant can be vocally activated to provide entertainment support, help search information, and control other smart devices in different areas. In this article, we argue that, even for the products that have been certified by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, interoperability issues can occur during the complex matches among the various products in the market.
Voice recognition has become the prevalent technology for remote authentication, and the market competition of smart assistants, consequently, has been led into the white-hot stage. In this article, we will explain the three issues by sharing the results from our smart assistant trial cases. Then we will introduce Allion’s test solutions for smart assistant.
The performance of IoT devices should involve in three factors: product capability, network connectivity and user environment/ behavior. Vendors thus need a new methodology to verify products before launching to the market. This article will discuss a new methodology of IoT device validation “Heat Map Analysis”, which is used to perceive real-world factors and further discover and resolve common wireless connectivity issues.
Allion is pleased to announce development efforts for IoT interoperability testing. In our state-of-the art IoT facility, Allion performs wide range of test for interoperability between different OEM vendor smart devices.
