— The 2nd Domestic Embedded Operating System Technology and Industry Forum
With the international environment tightening and the growth of domestic semiconductor, “made in China” embedded OS has become a focal point among the industry, academia, and government agencies. In the developing area of AIoT, embedded OS is without a doubt playing an increasing role. Facing uncertainty in today’s world environment, domestic intelligent systems, especially those deployed in industrial intelligence and IoT, cannot survive without domestic embedded OS. Beihang University School of Computer Science, Beihang University Hangzhou Institute of Innovation, China Electronic Technology Standardization Institute IoT Research Center, ESBF, and the Microcontroller and Embedded System Application Journal hosted the 2nd Domestic Embedded Operating System Technology and Industry forum (the 26th ESBF forum) in October.
The forum focused on 2 topics: “Embedded OS in Industrial Intelligent Systems” and “IoT OS in the Age of AIoT”. We invited experts, academicians, and industry practitioners who participate in embedded OS research, education, development, and open-source project maintenance to speak and discuss the topics. Yuan Deng, dean of Beihang University Hangzhou Institute of Innovation, gave the opening speech. Hosts of the forum are Prof. Jianwei of Beihang University School of Computer Science and Allan He, secretary in chief of ESBF. Participants freely discussed the latest software technology of IoT, 5G, robotic and AIoT OS, new products, and market opportunities, as well as the development of the ecosystem to jump-start industrial growth. More than 150 experts, scholars, and guests from all over the country, both online and onsite, participated in the forum.
Morning Highlights: Embedded OS in Industrial Intelligent Systems
Afternoon Highlights: IoT OS in the Age of AIoT
In the discussion phase, early embedded OS practitioner Allan He, Prof. Wenzhi Chen of Zhejiang University, Linli Fu, CEO of Hangzhou Rainbow Intelligence, and Jianchuan Guo, CTO of Kyland Technology OS Department passionately discussed their experiences in the embedded system industry, and the future development, opportunities, and challenges of domestic embedded OS. The panelists shared their opinions on the speaker series, interact with the audience, and in particular, dived into their visions of Huawei’s Harmony OS.
According to Allan: the future of code-limited IoT OS is clear (e.g. towards security and cloud integration); general ubiquitous IoT OSes are still being explored, they likely will evolve towards AIoT; AI will become a basic element of IoT OSes; domestic embedded OS is in an upwards trajectory and has plenty of room to grow and compete with multiple possible paths. He suggested that embedded OS companies in China should explore their focus areas and help users to develop diversified applications faster. Prof. Wenzhi Chen predicted the 4 major trends of embedded OS development: cloud integration, hardware-software integration, ecosystem construction, and standardization.
Embedded OS is a field of a long history, wide application, and complex categorizations whose products include RTOS, open-source Linux, robotic/communication OSes, and the developing IoT / edge computing OS platforms. Genially speaking, an open-source that is developed or maintained by Chinese developers can be referred to as a domestic embedded OS.
Compared to the first Domestic Embedded Operating System Technology and Industry forum, companies like Ali and Instruction Set Technology have advanced in their IoT OS products, we have also covered a wider range of products and ideas, such as industrial and robotic OSes. Domestic embedded OSes are undoubtedly enjoying tremendous growth opportunities while facing challenges like a lack of a complete ecosystem. We hope the industry can work together to advance quick and healthy growth in the field of embedded OS in China.
