User Interface Performance Testing
Automated testing method for user interface performance is highly recommended in order to guarantee the performance and functionality of smart devices. Non-intrusive testing requires no changes to the device-under-test and is easy to carry out for bench marking purposes as well. Typical items to be tested with user interface performance include:
- UI content scroll performance
- UI latency / response time
- Finger tracking, pen-to-ink
- UI functionality
We recommend OptoFidelity HSUP Human Simulator® and OptoFidelity WatchDog™ for UI performance testing.
OptoFidelity™ HSUP Human Simulator
OptoFidelity™ HSUP Human Simulator User Interface Performance Tester is designed to test devices like a human and to get the same feedback as a real end-user. It is a complete, fully automatic, user interface (UI) performance test system for mobile and touch device UI stability and reliability testing. The same system can be also used for functional testing. HSUP helps to reduce the time-to-market of your devices.
OptoFidelity™ HSUP Human Simulator Key Features
A test case generator for creating your own test cases | Latency measurement with an integrated OptoFidelity™ WatchDog test application | Camera-based operation makes the device under test (DUT) positioning easier and more accurate |DUT coordination navigation makes the test cases reusable and easy to maintain |Three axis desktop robot |Standard tester supports up to 12.5” displays |Removes the disadvantages of manual testing by offering repeatable, measurable and comparable tests and test results |State validation tools included
OptoFidelity™ HSUP Human Simulator Benefits
Non-intrusive testing method, the robot uses the device like a human |Replaces unreliable manual testing by delivering high quality, comparable and repeatable test results every time |24/7 testing with an automated, easily maintained, test system |Test cost savings: common multiplatform, tests which you can update quickly, better test coverage and more combinations of tests |Time-to-market benefit: modeled requirements, fast ramp-up and payback guarantee a quicker and better return on investment (ROI)
OptoFidelity™ WatchDog is a revolutionary measurement tool for analyzing the real user interface (UI) performance of a mobile phone, tablet or other multimedia device. It can capture what we see after our interaction with a device. It is designed to measure key elements of UI performance – speed, latency and response times of the device. Based on an intelligent, self-learning video analysis algorithm, the OptoFidelity™ WatchDog system automatically detects visual, audio and haptics events from the operator interface of the device, and reports the events with accurate timestamps instantaneously. You don’t need to teach the WatchDog new tricks, it learns by itself!
OptoFidelity™ WatchDog Key Features
Turnkey solution with the necessary video, data acquisition, processing and analyzing components | No requirements for any modifications to the device under test, so release version firmware testing and competitor benchmarking can be done with ease | A generic and adaptable UI is included for entering test parameters and limits that can easily be used in the test applications | The main system software is highly modular in order to allow straightforward inclusion of new hardware components for supporting specific measurement needs
OptoFidelity™ WatchDog Benefits
Replaces unreliable manual testing by carrying out high quality, accurate, comparable and repeatable testing | Measures quality of experience and usability | An automated, easily maintained test system which saves testing time and costs | Enables easy bench marking and competitor analysis | Self-learning | Fast reporting
