The Zephyr Project: An RTOS for IoT

How do you develop and sustain an operating system primed for the continuously evolving nature of the internet of things? You model it, in part, on the highly successful Linux platform, which is exactly the tactic of the Zephyr Project, an open, real-time operating system overseen by the nonprofit Linux Foundation along with a variety of other big-name industry players.

Zephyr OS, a 'Secure IoT RTOS,' You Say?

Earlier this year, the Zephyr project was launched to a world justifiably skeptical of self-anointed “secure” technologies, jaded by the sloganeering of all things IoT, and seemingly saturated by the proliferation and fragmentation of no-size-fits-all microcontroller RTOS platforms. Given those circumstances it is only reasonable that I find myself asked what we could possibly be thinking in launching a new “secure IoT RTOS platform.” Or, should I say, why are we launching yet another one.
