Hi Steve, all,

Sorry for my late answer. Indeed yes, some of the tests require human interaction.

The tests developed so far are available on a dedicated page of the MOSQUITO website [1].  As this is the first set of tests we develop, any feedback will be appreciated. We still have time to contribute, so if you know specific area of the API that need tests, please let us know. 

Thanks,
Fabrice.

	fwiw, Mozilla has plans to test such things by using a system-qemu and
	adjusting the sensor values "Marionette" [1].
