What is Embedded Technology or System and How They Work?
Well! These are systems that are highly personalized, created and programmed according to the user needs. The conventional embedded systems are the electronic components that contain a microprocessor, memory card, and software program that runs instructions, operate the tools and systems and follow strong programming that is embedded inside the microchip.
How Embedded Technologies Will Play its Role in IoT?
It is because of their unique characteristics and the features within like real-time computing, high availability, less power consumption as well as low maintenance, they are now an important enabler of IoT. The developers of the embedded system hardware and software are trying to make these transformations in their products to take benefit of the growing IoT market.
The latest embedded technologies will need some alterations in the conventional embedded system design and architecture so that it suits real-time operations, the small size of the unit, consumes less power and is cost-effective. When microcontroller, SoC and RISC are used, it increases the scope in IoT.
Embedded technologies will help in easy management of hardware resources, processes data. Hosts applications that too on a real-time basis. It clarifies the real-time task processing time, interrupts latency, reliability for a long period for both hardware and software applications specifically for devices and networks with low power and memory constraints. This will make a great contribution to IoT in the future along with enhanced reliability degree and time consistency in between application task acceptance and its completion.
To facilitate more and more embedded technologies in IoT, following factors are being examined
Detail analysis of those products that will be developed to support IoT
Major alterations in conventional RTOS needed to match the IoT performance.
Hardware changes to match the IoT requirements.
Kinds of peripherals
Tools that support the embedded system processing in IoT.
A report named Embedded Internet of Things Ecosystem offers the five-year forecast for embedded technologies in IoT within the period 2016-2021.
Thus, we can say that the future of embedded technologies in IoT depends on the development of technologies that facilitate rapid communication along with high interwoven connections among varied devices. The future is very bright because the internet nowadays is easily accessible in every part of the world. Because of IoT with embedded technologies, people will get easy access to all products at home even if they are not at home.
