Software Testing News Aug 2022
Another month has begun and so it is time for a regular feature of ours. Software Testing News Aug 2022 includes an interesting feature on top cloud automation testing tools. We then move on to a piece from The Guardian on test issues with Tesla’s self-driving technology. Finally, we look at a tech start-up who have secured capital for a platform for developers. The platform from Mobot allows them to use robots to automate app testing on devices.
2022’s Top cloud automation testing tools
This Tech Republic article lists some top testing tools for cloud-based applications. More organisations are migrating to the cloud and as such, more tools are emerging. It is therefore important to know which one to select for your business. Here is a small list taken from the piece, which is well worth a read:

Does Tesla’s self-driving technology pose a threat to child pedestrians?
Yes, according to a safe-technology campaign group which claims to have run tests to the effect. In this piece from The Guardian, The Dawn Project says that Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta software failed to detect a stationary, child-sized mannequin at 25mph. This is not an isolated critique of Tesla and their technology. Whatever the agenda behind this latest incident though, it just goes to prove how important it is to test, test and then test again.
First “infrastructure-as-a-service” platform secures capital
This Tech Crunch piece reveals that a $12.5 million Series A round led by Cota Capital was closed by Mobot in August. Other participants included Heavybit and Bling Capital, with the company raising a total of $17.8 million. This is set to be used in the pursuit of using physical robots to automate app testing. The ultimate objective is to replace manual quality assurance efforts.
And so ends another round-up of interesting articles from the previous month. In ‘Software Testing News Aug 2022’ we aimed to select pieces that demonstrated the need for testing. Did we manage it? Or do you think we missed something out? If so then we would love to hear from you!
