EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral open source project building a common open framework for IoT edge computing. EdgeX is an important enabler for interested parties to freely collaborate on open and interoperable IoT solutions built using existing connectivity standards combined with their own innovations. The Zephyr Project is a scalable real-time operating system (RTOS) supporting multiple hardware architectures, optimized for resource-constrained devices, and built with security in mind. Zephyr OS was created in response to clear needs in the ecosystem for a small, scalable RTOS which supports multiple hardware architectures. This presentation will showcase how the two projects are working together to advance the open IoT and embedded ecosystem. The speakers will demonstrate how the two technologies enable rapid IoT development via plug and play components that feed into a common, edge platform architecture.
