Embedded World 2024 (Nuremberg, Germany)

April 9 - April 11

The embedded world Exhibition&Conference will take place on April 9-11 in Nuremberg, Germany. The event provides a global platform and a place to meet for the entire embedded community, including leading experts, key players and industry associations. It offers unprecedented insight into the world of embedded systems, from components and modules to operating systems, hardware and software design, M2M communication, services, and various issues related to complex system design.

Its expertise and sharp focus on technologies, processes and future-oriented products make it unparalleled in international comparisons – and THE must-attend event for developers, system architects, product managers and technical management.

The Zephyr Project will be on-site again as an exhibitor with a booth (Hall 4-170)that will showcase a wide variety of demos and products running on Zephyr. Members Analog Devices, Antmicro, Nordic Semiconductor and NXP as well as Ac6, AVSystem, Golioth, Infineon, IRNAS, Laird Connectivity, Memfault, Percepio, Renesas, Sternum and Synopsys will have demos and ambassadors on-site to answer questions.

Simultaneously, the embedded world Conference will showcase talks on Zephyr, offering valuable insights.

Tuesday, April 9:

Join the Hands-On Zephyr Project workshop by Jonas Remmert from Phytec Messtechnik GmbH. This interactive workshop will demonstrate how to set up a development environment and configure an out-of-tree example with Zephyr and cover topics like board abstractions, RTOS features and higher layer software subsystems such as the Sensor API, BLE stack and the networking stack.

Jason Murphy (Co-Authors: David Perez, Wassim Magnin) from Analog Devices will also have a session titled, “Revolutionizing Industrial IoT: Enabling Real-time Secure Connectivity to the Edge with Single-Pair Ethernet and Zephyr OS.” 
Single-Pair Ethernet (10BASE-T1L SPE) is transforming low speed, insecure fieldbus installations into flexible, higher data rate links with modern cybersecurity. Running over single twisted pair cabling, SPE enables IP connectivity to field-level devices using existing wiring infrastructure, reducing installation costs while eliminating data islands that commonly exist between operational technology (OT) and IT systems. The shift towards extending IP connectivity to the edge is driving the requirement for
integrating Ethernet connectivity into resource-constrained embedded devices around factories and buildings. This paper explores the use of Zephyr OS as an embedded software ecosystem for Ethernet- connected industrial devices. Zephyr provides a comprehensive networking software stack including support for protocols such as TCP/IP, MQTT and TLS that are crucial software components in industrial IoT (IIoT) applications. We present an overview of SPE technology for IIoT applications, followed by a
discussion on how Zephyr’s software ecosystem can be harnessed to drive rapid development of secure, real-time, Ethernet-connected industrial edge devices. The discussion aims to underscore the potential of Single-Pair Ethernet in combination with modern embedded OS, to drive smaller, smarter, and lower-
cost intelligent nodes deeper into the built environment.

Wednesday, April 10:

Explore the talk ‘Zephyr Project: Result of Applying Open Source Project Best Practices’ by Kate Stewart, Vice President of Dependable Embedded Systems at the Linux Foundation. This talk will delve into the open source best practices that Zephyr has applied over the years, and summarize its current status and outline plans for 2024.

Mohammed Billoo , MAB Labs Embedded Solutions, will also give a talk on the same day on ‘Zephyr Device Drivers: Walkthrough and Examples.”  In this workshop, he will offer a deep dive into the Zephyr Project RTOS (or “Zephyr”) device driver model presenting examples of the interesting strategy that Zephyr leverages to incorporate different device drivers, including OS-independent open-source drivers.

Oliver Völckers, BeST Berliner Sensortechnik will give a talk on Enhancing Signal Processing Through Transparent AI in an Embedded Sensor System on the same day. Oliver will give a talk on the innovative approach to enhancing machine learning in distributed IoT systems. The focus of the presentation will be on leveraging transparent rules rooted in human knowledge to address the challenge of acquiring extensive training data, particularly when dealing with sensor data from EDGE IoT systems. The system, operational for nearly two years and actively evaluating wastewater pumps for Deutsche Bahn’s high-speed ICE trains, will be explored in detail. Attendees can anticipate valuable insights into the functionality of the system and its implications for designing distributed IoT sensor nodes for accurate data interpretation.

Thursday, April 11:

Tiago Monte, Developer Marketing Manager at Nordic Semiconductor, will give a presentation about “Building the future of IoT with nRF Connect SDK and Zephyr RTOS.” IoT devices have become more than wirelessly connected gadgets as they continuously incorporate more functionality and sophistication, from security features to multiprotocol, machine learning, and more. This puts increased pressure on embedded software developers to balance development cost, time to market, and maintenance of their products in the field.

In this session, we will discuss Nordic’s nRF Connect SDK, based on Zephyr RTOS, and how it was created from the ground up based on a vision for how to enable developers to build the future of IoT faster, securely, and more scalable.
