On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Associate Editor, Tiera Oliver, is joined by Michel Chabroux, Senior Director of Product Management at Wind River Systems, to discuss the evolution of embedded and safety-critical operating systems, and how containers and newer programming languages like Rust are affecting that transformation.
Enabling the requisite level of responsive interactivity and frictionless interoperability needed to realize the vision of Industry 4.0 manufacturing technology and industrial IoT platforms requires hardware and software engineered for the demanding infrastructure edge. Two components that satisfy these requirements and interoperate smoothly are Wind River VxWorks and the 11th Gen Intel Core processor for IoT platforms.
The drive toward digital business transformation that enables a digital healthcare system, with all of the benefits of shared healthcare data, is inevitable. This requires both medical device manufacturers and end users to consider the new concerns of cybersecurity, in order to meet regulatory requirements and mitigate risk for their company brand and reputation.
Software & OS
Industry 4.0 has been in the works for more than a decade but is finally reaching critical mass. As OT professionals prepare to safely and securely ramp up industrial digitization initiatives, there are a range of new, probably unfamiliar technologies they must become acquainted with to have a shot at success.
Here are the top three.
Technology advances have delivered major benefits to the global health and medical segments. Still, much of the medical systems and devices are based on previous generation of technologies. The challenges such as computing from Edge-to-cloud, leveraging AI, transforming digitally, updating systems, providing hardened security, utilizing open source, rapid data transfer and meeting FDA regulations are high priorities for medical equipment companies.
