IoT infrastructure consists of various technology platforms (hardware and software) either cloud-based or enterprise, application interfaces, protocols, operating systems, storage and networking fabrics.
IoT demands a different set of microprocessors, drivers, peripherals, batteries and operating systems than conventional Embedded System used in general purpose computing systems. At present, most embedded systems use 4th Generation languages such as C, C++ and Java for their hardware components to transmit, store, and execute code.
Conventional Embedded Systems are not competent to deliver what the IoT is expecting from an embedded device networked in IoT and it brings great challenges to develop or transform contemporary embedded system into an IoT enabled smart embedded system.
Embedded Internet of Things (IoT) Ecosystem: Next Gen Embedded System Hardware, Software, Tools, and Operating Systems 2016 – 2021 provides analysis of the products that will be developed to support IoT, changes in traditional RTOS required to match performance with IoT, changes in hardware required to match needs of IoT, types of peripherals, and emerging tools to support processing of embedded systems in IoT.
The report provides five year forecast for Embedded Systems in IoT for the period of 2016 – 2021. It provides regional segmentation by industry for embedded systems and components.
