Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) for IoT: Market Analysis and Forecasts 2017 – 2022” report to their offering. A Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS) is an OS that manages hardware resources, hosts applications, and processes data on real-time basis. RTOS defines the real time task processing time, interrupt latency, and reliability of both hardware and applications, especially for low powered and memory constrained devices and networks.

The key difference between RTOS and a general purpose OS lies within its high degree of reliability and consistency on timing between application’s task acceptance and completion.

RTOS is a critical component to build comprehensive embedded systems for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for both consumer and industrial IoT (IIoT). Embedded RTOS is a key consideration to build mission critical, reliable IIoT applications across various industry verticals including industrial equipment, automotive, healthcare, telecommunications, government solutions, and more.

This research provides an in-depth assessment of the RTOS embedded IoT system market including following:

– Assessment of RTOS in IoT including hardware, software, and firmware
– Analysis of embedded RTOS programs to support low power network connectivity
– Evaluation of peripherals and tools to support processing of embedded systems in IoT
– Assessment of applications and industry verticals including benefits of RTOS over traditional OS
– Analysis of market segments and sub-segments with consideration towards emerging business models
– Evaluation of leading RTOS vendors, platforms, and solutions including both open source and proprietary
