OS for the IoT - Goals, Challenges, and Solutions

Abstract : The Internet of Things embodies a wide spectrum of machines ranging from sensors powered by 8-bit microcontrollers to devices powered by processors roughly equivalent to those found in entry-level smartphones. Neither traditional operating systems (OS) currently running on Internet hosts, nor typical OS for sensor networks are capable to fulfill all at once the diverse requirements of such a wide range of devices. Hence, in order to avoid redundant developments and maintenance costs of IoT products, a novel, unifying type of OS is needed. The following analyzes requirements such an OS should fulfill and introduces RIOT, an OS satisfying these demands.
