This talk will identify some of the current technology enablers for the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as some of the remaining software obstacles required to allow pervasive connection of IoT devices to the Internet.  Edge devices for the IoT are typically small in size, are run by a low-end microcontroller, include small amounts of RAM, Flash and ROM, and have low power consumption.  Off-the-shelf real-time operating systems (RTOSs) are not geared toward this environment, and hence are unable to solve many of the problems faced by the IoT designer.
In this talk, Steve Jordan will propose a different approach for an IoT RTOS.  IoT edge devices first and foremost require an Internet-centric connectivity OS that can handle the Internet’s non-deterministic nature.  For instance:
�    it is unknown if and when a browser will be able to successfully open any particular web page,
�    the Internet is state machine-oriented by its nature, and
�    IoT edge devices are generally very constrained by the amount of power available.
Thus, (1) an IoT OS must exhibit the characteristics of a state machine architecture since the Internet is more connectivity-driven than what is supported by conventional RTOSs, and (2) an IoT OS must be architected for the lowest node power possible.  Steve Jordan will elaborate on how these requirements can be achieved.
