With the invention of the Internet of Things (IoT), there has been a rapid growth in the demand for embedded systems. As a result, embedded intelligent connectivity continues to grow at a phenomenal rate.
There are embedded systems around us in the form of commercial systems like vending machines, AC controllers, connected cars, etc., that can perform a unique variety of operations. The (IoT) is a process where objects are equipped with sensors and processors that include hardware board design and development, software systems, web APIs, and protocols that together form a connected environment of embedded systems. This connected environment allows connecting technologies through multiple devices, channels, and networks, creating a communication network that revolutionizes the way we digitally interact with the world. The embedded systems change the way we interact with our environment, homes, and even with our own bodies. Now that every watch, toaster, and light bulb is equipped with a processor, the market needs more embedded developers and Internet of Things development companies to program and configure these devices.
From the engineering perspective, the IoT is an embedded microprocessor-controlled system connected to the web. Hence, embedded software development, network technology, and information technology are the three pillars of the IoT. A system of embedded devices gathers data from sensors and uses a wifi module to send it to the cloud, which essentially means you can turn your embedded device into an IoT device by simply giving it Internet access.
In this infographics, we explain the relation between IoT and embedded systems.
