ABSTRACT

This paper presents a virtual sensor system that is an effective method to test application software of smart sensors. The common way of testing sensor application is to build a test board,connect sensors to the board, and test sensor applications on the board with sensor's measurements as inputs. The problem of testing sensor application software with sensor's measurements as inputs is the restriction of test data. In other words, software testers cannot manipulate test data, because test data is generated by sensors. To solve this problem a virtual sensor system is presented in this paper. The virtual sensor system enables software testers to manipulate measurements of sensors. In the virtual sensor system, generation of virtual sensors comprises three stages - sensor selection, sensor characterization, and determination of output patterns. Sensor's measurements that can be manipulated through the virtual sensor system make the process of testing efficient. To show the usefulness of our virtual sensor system, it is applied to sensor applications in Android platform and the result of experiments is shown
