“Present State and Future of Internet of Things Operating Systems” Seminar Announcement

— To be held in Beijing, China, November 2017

Operating System (OS) is the strategic high-ground of the era of Internet of Things (IoT), where PC and mobile OS leaders may not be able to hold the leading positions. In the field of OS, it is extremely difficult to challenge a monopoly once it forms. But the new revolution happening today is opening a unique market of OS for imagination and innovation.

It is war time right now in IoT. IT giants like ARM, Google, Microsoft, Huawei, Alibaba and Haier are all working on IoT OSes; traditional embedded system companies, for instance Intel, Wind River, Silicon Labs and Micrium are also pushing out IoT software platforms, many based on acquisitions and open source strategy. Domestic startups in China are also on the edge of the trend developing IoT OSes, MxChip, Ruff and RT-thread are just a few of them.

2014 was a milestone year for IoT OS; since this year a variety of IoT OSes has emerged. Now, after 3 years, what is the current status quo of the industry? How are the projects going? What’s next on the horizon? These are the some of the pending questions among practitioners.

ESBF is proud to host “Present State and Future of Internet of Things Operating Systems” seminar on Nov. 12nd 2017 in Beijing, inviting industry representatives from ARM, Ruff, RT-thread, MxChip, Huawei, ZTE, C-Sky etc., and scholars from Tsinghua University, Beihang University and East China Normal University. As usual, we also welcome friends and professionals to attend the seminar and join the discussion.
