New life for embedded systems and the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer a fanciful vision. It is very much with us, in everything from factory automation to on-demand entertainment. Yet by most accounts, the full potential of interconnected systems and intelligent devices for changing the way we work and live has barely been tapped.

Up until now, IoT software solutions have largely had to be built from scratch with a high degree of customisation to specific requirements, which has driven up the cost and complexity of development and deterred many prospective entrants to the market. What have been missing are developer tools that alleviate the costs associated with building the foundational infrastructure — the 'plumbing' of their solutions — so they can focus on optimising the core functionality and bring solutions to market more quickly with less cost.

Wind River is addressing these challenges with new solutions that have the potential to expand the market for IoT by reducing the cost and complexity of development. This whitepaper outlines the challenges that IoT poses for developers, and how the company's solutions can help overcome them.
