    Abstract :

    Automated test execution requires execution of commands at the remote device under test and also may require transfer of files for the successful execution of tests. Usually any test framework uses ADB interface to implement these tests for an Android DUT. ADB is a third party tool and hence has a dependency on Android. This paper intends to propose a mechanism to remove this dependency by carrying out successful execution of automated tests by transfer of the required commands and files using a serial interface which is present in all the DUT’s. This makes the tests more robust and the same tests can be used in a Linux only environment as well.
