Wind River to Showcase Internet of Things Technologies and Trends at Embedded World 2014

ISMANING, Germany --(Business Wire)--

Wind River®, a world leader in embedded software for intelligent connected systems, will present and exhibit at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany. The company will focus on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and trends and the associated opportunities and challenges. Presentations, product demonstrations and live customer applications at the Wind River (News - Alert) booth, will widely reflect this theme.

Wind River presentations at Embedded World 2014 will address the following emerging trends and pertinent industry challenges:

  • Applying Connectivity, Manageability, and Security to Critical Infrastructure: Wind River will cover how software development environments with pre-integrated, ready-to-use components such as device security, smart connectivity, rich network options, and device management can be used to secure, manage, and connect IoT gateways in the critical infrastructure market.
  • VxWorks-The RTOS Enabling the Internet of Things: Wind River will discuss its VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS), which has been re-architected in response to changes in the embedded market landscape. The company will provide in-depth coverage of the product's new features, which address IoT, machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, the cloud, and security.
  • The Device Revolution (News - Alert): How Intelligence in Critical Devices is Transforming Business: Wind River will outline how developers of intelligent systems are realizing the potential of the Internet of Things by optimizing business intelligence with anyhere, anytime access to critical information. Industry use cases will provide insight into the impact on the supply/value chain and the ecosystem. The company will also highlight development considerations key to success, including securing these complex, connected devices that are often connected to public networking infrastructure from hacker attacks and breaches.
  • Wind River Open Virtualization with Real-Time Performance: Wind River will examine how open virtualization technologies enable many applications and functions to run dedicated operating systems, and enable hardware to consolidate into one system. The company will also cover real-time virtualization using open source kernel virtualization machine technology to deliver extremely low latency with near native hardware performance, high throughput and virtual node management.

"The Internet of Things is a driving force that will significantly impact the embedded industry in the coming years, with the evolution of standalone embedded systems into massive networks of devices that deliver unprecedented amounts of data over the Internet," said Jim Douglas, chief marketing officer at Wind River. "Embedded World provides an ideal forum for the industry to come together to discuss this evolving embedded landscape, and we look forward to leading conversations around key industry topics that address this increasingly connected world."

Wind River will also be showcasing a wide range of demonstrations, including its RTOS and open source technologies, software platform for IoT, and solutions for the automotive market.

Embedded World is the biggest European exhibition on embedded systems. This annual summit is the meeting point of a whole industry, bringing together developers, manufacturers, distributors, and more. The Embedded World exhibition and conference focus on the latest trends and major current embedded technology topics, including innovations in hardware, software, and development tools for automotive, energy, telecommunication, military, medical, aerospace, industrial, and consumer electronics markets.
