IOT - Internet of Things
Most of the "Things" in IoT will be embedded system. Saying that the hardware part of the IoT eco system will consist of MCUs, wireless modules and sensors all of which are embedded system. An embedded system with connectivity to a local network or internet will be classified as IoT device.
Embedded systems have become an important part of every modern electronic component such as – microwave oven, washing machine, remote control, RFID tags, routers, modems, PDAs, mobile phones etc. Embedded system is a part of large device that perform specific task of the device. For instance – they are used as home automation embedded systems to control lights, sensors, sense climate change, AV systems etc.
Today, IoT is one of the hottest topics of the industry and has taken its place in conventional business Jargon. However, it brought host of challenges for developers — as they need to develop devices that allow seamless connectivity. To help embedded developers meet the challenges posed by IoT, an RTOS must be designed that delivers scalability, connectivity, modularity, safety and a cutting-edge feature set to comply with the demands of highly connected remotely managed IoT solutions.
