Nowadays, as mobile devices have become widespread, mobile application development has become an area which is considerably popular. This popularity increases the importance of mobile application testing. Distinguishing properties of mobile devices increase the importance of test automation. Thus, the number of mobile test automation tools is growing. Each tool has some advantages and limitations. The aim of this study is to compare the most popular mobile testing tools. We choose Android testing tools because of Android’s prevalence in the market. To achieve this aim of the study, firstly we have identified the criteria that will be used for comparison of the testing tools. Then, we have selected three most commonly used Android test automation tools. Afterwards, we have analyzed and compared the selected tools in terms of the criteria identified before. In order to make this comparison we have made a detailed research on tutorials and conducted a case study in which we have written and run same test cases by using each of the selected tools

Semantic prefetching and caching in 5G
Mehteroğlu, Can; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Recent popularity of mobile devices increased the demand for mobile network services and applications that require minimal delay. 5G mobile networks are expected to provide much lesser delay than the present mobile networks. One of the conventional ways for decreasing latency is caching content closer to end users. However, currently deployed methods are not effective enough. In this thesis, we propose a new astute caching strategy that is able to smartly predict subsequent user requests and prefetch necess...
An Efficient graph-theoretical approach for interactive mobile image and video segmentation
Şener, Ozan; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Over the past few years, processing of visual information by mobile devices getting more affordable due to the advances in mobile technologies. Efficient and accurate segmentation of objects from an image or video leads many interesting multimedia applications. In this study, we address interactive image and video segmentation on mobile devices. We first propose a novel interaction methodology leading better satisfaction based on subjective user evaluation. Due to small screens of the mobile devices, error ...

Methods for location prediction of mobile phone users
Keleş, İlkcan; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Due to the increasing use of mobile phones and their increasing capabilities, huge amount of usage and location data can be collected. Location prediction is an important task for mobile phone operators and smart city administrations to provide better services and recommendations. In this work, we have investigated several approaches for location prediction problem including clustering, classification and sequential pattern mining. We propose a sequence mining based approach for location prediction of mobil...
