Global IoT Operating Systems Market: Snapshot
An increasing number of open source projects in the world today are being borne out of the mobile markets and the Internet of Things concepts. The Internet of Things is already on a path of revolutionizing everything; from the way we live our lives to the way industries function. It is a common opinion among industry experts that by 2020, nearly 24 bn devices will be connected to the Internet, creating such a massive scope of opportunities for players in the Internet of Things markets that there will be a desperate need for exclusive operating systems that function off IoT devices.
Current Internet of Things devices are being run on RTOS, or real time operating systems. This type of an operating system can offer interoperability, connectivity, and usability, depending on the type of provider and the type of requirement. Sensor nodes in a typical RTOS include memory devices, batteries, radio transceiver, a microprocessor, and the specific type of sensor. The RTOS also provides a guarantee on the maximum time it can take to complete operations, making it highly valuable for crunching data in a time critical operation.
IoT (Internet of Things) can carry out data exchange between various devices over the network in the most efficient way using the lowest amount of resources and less power consumption. As the general operating systems required the significant amount of resources, they are not able to establish a connection with IoT applications. Traditional operating systems such as Windows, iOS, and Linux are not compatible and configured for IoT applications. Traditional OS requires more power, faster processors, and do not support the IoT chip which is used in various applications. So full range of operating systems is developed for IoT according to different hardware and features required to connect with various electronic devices. IoT devices are driven by real-time operating systems (RTOS) that provides usability, interoperability, and connectivity. IoT operating systems provides memory and energy efficiency to fit IoT devices. IoT operating systems designed for wide range of low-power devices with real-time facilities used in sensor networks, smart buildings, personal area network and ubiquitous computing, etc. IoT operating systems provides memory and energy efficiency to fit IoT devices. Benefits of IoT operations systems are a minimal memory, real-time communication, scalability, power management, security and supporting different process architectures and connectivity protocols.
