Simulation Based Software Development for Smart Phones

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 153)


Smart phones are getting more and more popular each year and have more and better sensors. The sensors are a rich information source for creating contextaware applications. However, this makes the applications increase in complexity until they become too hard to test in the lab. In order to solve this problem, we propose to test this kind of applications through a simulator. The user interacts with the simulated environment using the keyboard and mouse like a computer game. But the application is not simulated and the user interacts with the application through a smart phone, giving a real experience.
