Warehouse Automation Testing

Warehouse automation is an evolving market with bleeding technology in place. Autonomous mobile robots are used to assist human operators to increase efficiency. How can we test such a system in which there are Robotics Operating System, hardware sensors, and AI modules? Let's discuss the testing challenges and ways to cope with them. While the warehouse automation system is referred to as the system under test in this talk, the problems and the proposed solutions are applicable in any software test automation project. Warehouse Automation (WA) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) development is a hot topic. Nowadays, in an online shopping and delivery world, the most prominent companies are investing in developing these systems. Thus, verification and validation of them is another challenge for the developers. As far as warehouse test automation is taken into consideration, there are several challenges coming into place. There are robots and hardware components like sensors and perception modules, making automation more difficult. Let's see how we can manage properly.
