Operating Systems for IoT

IoT operating systems are operating systems that run considering the constraints of IoT devices such as power consumption, low memory availability, processing capacity while enabling data transfer over the internet enabling the IoT devices to work similarly as a normal computer with an internet connection.

One of the major IoT OS in usage is RIOT OS. RIOT implements a microkernel architecture inherited fromFireKerne enabling standard C and C++ programming, provides multi-threading as well as real-time capabilities and needs only a minimum of 1.5 kB of RAM. RIOT allows developers to create as many threads as needed and the number of threads is only limited by the available memory and stack size for each thread.
