Sensor DataReport Validation Test (System)

The data report of each sensor device is expected to have specific data fields and each data field must be a specific vartype. The test prompts the tester to put the sensor device into ready state and the data report is examined to validate the presence of the required data fields and correct vartypes.

This is a system-specific implementation of an existing test. For more information on this test, see Sensor DataReport Validation Test.
