Embedded Systems have come a long way since the 1950’s, automating factories, water treatment plants and oil & gas production. Today embedded systems have grown to be a significant piece of the IoT puzzle, along with:
Big Data and Deep Learning
And Universal Connectivity
PTC has released a whitepaper titled "Real-Time Java: Does it belong in the IoT?" which explains how this group of technologies work together to form what we know as the Internet of Things. Each of these four technologies play a unique role in the IoT, but to satisfy the requirements of such sophisticated intelligence, developers are turning more to Java language, runtime, and ecosystem with the following assets:
Automatic garbage collection
Robust exception handling
Built-in threading model
Is that all that is needed for intelligent IoT edge devices? To find out, download now!
