Internet-of-Things (IoT) has attained a major share in embedded software development. The new era of specialized intelligent systems requires adaptation of customized software engineering approaches. Currently, software engineering has merged the development phases with the technologies provided by industrial automation. The improvements are still required in testing phase for the software developed to IoT solutions. This research aims to assist in developing the testing strategies for IoT applications, therein ontology has been adopted as a knowledge representation technique to different software engineering processes. The proposed ontological model renders 101 methodology by using Protégé. After completion, the ontology was evaluated in three-dimensional view by the domain experts of software testing, IoT and ontology engineering. Satisfied results of the research are showed in interest of the specialists regarding proposed ontology development and suggestions for improvements. The Proposed reasoning-based ontological model for development of testing strategies in IoT application contributes to increase the general understanding of tests in addition to assisting for the development of testing strategies for different IoT devices.
