Software Development (IoT and Embedded)
IoT (Internet of Things) and embedded systems software development are related but distinct fields. IoT software development involves creating software applications and systems that connect devices and sensors to the internet, allowing them to communicate and share data. This typically involves working with technologies such as wireless networking protocols, cloud computing, and big data analytics
IoT based systems are monitored online using custom online platforms.
Embedded systems software development, on the other hand, involves creating software that runs on small, specialized computer systems, often referred to as embedded devices, that are integrated into other products or systems. These systems are designed to perform specific tasks and are often low-power and resource-constrained.
Embedded systems software development typically involves working with microcontrollers, real-time operating systems, and other embedded-specific technologies.
Both IoT and embedded systems software development require a strong understanding of computer science and software development principles, as well as experience working with the specific technologies and platforms used in these fields. For IoT development, knowledge of web technologies, protocols, and cloud computing is needed. For embedded systems, knowledge of low-level programming, microcontroller programming and RTOS is necessary.
IoT and embedded systems are both growing fields, with a wide range of applications in areas such as smart homes, industrial automation, healthcare, transportation, and more. As the number of connected devices continues to increase, the demand for software developers with expertise in IoT and embedded systems is expected to continue to grow.
