Internet of Things (IoT) and Embedded Systems Development
The world is well groomed for standalone 5G and the mushrooming Internet of Things (IoT).
Powered by 5G architecture, the mass connectivity of devices is expected to reach 25 billion in 2021. It’s predicted that the markets for overall embedded systems will grow with a CAGR of 22.5% to reach $226 billion through 2020.
The adoption of IoT is already in a race in various applications – smart home, smart industries, etc. Many IoT devices are even becoming mainstream in agriculture.
IoT is constantly getting bigger and better. However, without embedded systems programming this would never have happened.
An embedded system is a combination of customized hardware and customized software. Customized hardware is the personalized design to suit your specific system with specific set of requirements. Customized software (also known as embedded firmware) is the software piece that gives life to the hardware. Developers conceptualize, write and cultivate the source code in order to develop a program that can perform desired functionality.
Compared to general purpose system (GPS), embedded systems (ES) are constrained in terms of resources. This means it will have lesser computing power, memory and lesser peripherals compared to GPS. For example your laptop might have 4GB of RAM (which is a GPS) whereas your wearable device (ES) might hardly have 200MB of RAM. This makes programming ES much different and challenging than GPS.
You can think of embedded system programming as a subset of Internet of Things (IoT) programming.
This connected environment allows technologies to get connected across multiple devices, platforms and networks, creating a web of communication that is revolutionizing the way we interact digitally with the world. Essentially, connected embedded systems are changing interactions and behavior with our environment, communities and homes, and even with our own bodies.
There are embedded systems around us in the form of commercial systems like vending machines, smart kiosks, AC controller, connected cars, hotel bill printers, etc., which are capable of performing a unique variety of operations.
However, systems engineers are finding that designing an embedded IoT hardware system is challenging. That’s because embedded IoT systems need to be designed for specific functions, possessing qualities of a good product design like low power consumption, secured architecture, reliable processor, etc.
One of the challenges involve lack of necessary flexibility for running applications over embedded systems.
Another big problem involves security issues. All the IoT hardware products need to perform securely in the real-time embedded environment. Since all the embedded components operate in a highly resource-constrained and in physically insecure situations, engineers often face problems in ensuring the security of these embedded components.
