6 Levels from Manual to Autonomous Testing

You will likely be able to hail an autonomous car in a major city within the next decade. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) describes the changing role of the driver to driver-less vehicles in six levels, starting from no automation to complete autonomy. Transitioning from these two disparate approaches requires a change in regulations, infrastructure, and mindset. Most importantly, it demands a guarantee that the latter, technological approach is just as reliable and accurate.  These levels and need for security when increasing automation efforts not only applies to the automotive industry, but also software development.

In order for a test automation engineer to ensure quality behind their application, there are three separate, but related dimensions that need to be addressed.  The first, level of accuracy, is a gauge in stability behind automated tests and ease of test creation from recognizing diverse application components. The second, ease of execution, is a gauge of agility behind delivering test automation and ability to easily run test scripts across your application and platforms. The third, ease of maintenance, is a gauge in scalability behind automated tests and ability to easily maintain test scripts after application updates, enhancements, and fixes. 

Behind each level, from manual to autonomous testing, lies key automation features that helps improve each dimension and your overall test automation strategy.
