Will You Be at the Virtual 2022 RT-Thread IoT OS Global Tech Conference?

Are you involved in developing embedded applications for the internet of things (IoT)?  If so, you really should be aware of RT-Thread, which is a tiny IoT operating system.

Born in 2006, RT-Thread is an open-source, neutral, and community-based real-time operating system (RTOS). With low resource occupancy, high reliability, and high scalability, RT-Thread can be used in sensing nodes, wireless connection chips, and a variety of resource-constrained and high-performance applications.

With its middle-tier components and hardware and software ecosystem, RT-Thread can also be considered an IoT platform, with almost every basic component required for IoT devices, such as network protocols, file systems, low power management, etc.

RT-Thread also supports all mainstream compiling tools such as GCC, Keil, IAR, etc., and a variety of standard interfaces like POSIX, CMSIS, a C++ application environment, Micropython, and Javascript, helping developers port a range of applications. RT-Thread also offers commercial support to all of the mainstream CPU architectures, such as ARM Cortex-M/R/A, RISC-V, MIPS, X86, and Xtensa.

The reason I’m telling you all of this is that RT-Thread is presenting the 2022 RT-Thread IoT OS Global Tech Conference, which will take place June 1-3, 2022. This free to attend virtual conference is open to engineers and managers from around the world.

As you will see from the agenda, each day of this three-day event is divided into three groups of 30-minute presentations with a 10-minute break between each group. Some highlights include:

Day 1

Advanced Endpoint Intelligence with Renesas: Presented by Mohammed Dogar, Vice President at Renesas Electronics Corporation, this talk will explain how Renesas can help to advance Endpoint intelligence.

RISC-V: The Road Ahead: Presented Stephano Cetola, Director of Technical Programs at RISC-V International, this is where we will discover the current state of RISC-V specification ratifications, the roadmap for RISC-V in 2022, and the status of RISC-V desktops and servers.

DSPs, Real-time Workloads and the Need for RTOS: Ori Leibovich, Senior Manager of Embedded Software & DevOps at CEVA, explains how newer generations of DSPs support features that are important for addressing IoT markets, and also how DSPs and the RT-Thread RTOS can be used together.

Day 2

RT-Thread Smart Micro-Kernel Operating System: Bernard Xiong, Founder of RT-Thread, answers the questions: What is a micro-kernel operating system? What is RT-Smart? Who needs RT-Smart? What are some different application scenarios?

PikaScript, An Ultra-lightweight Python Engine Under RT-Thread IoT OS: In this presentation, Lyon, who is a PhD student in instrumentation science, will introduce PikaScript, which is an open-source, ultra-lightweight Python engine that can run with RT-Thread on microcontrollers with as little as 4KB of RAM and 32KB of Flash.

Model-based Designed Autopilot with RT-Thread RTOS: Presented by Josh Zou, who is the author of open source Firmament (FMT) Autopilot, will discuss how FMT can be used in conjunction with RT-Thread to quickly and easily build the control system for autonomous vehicles such as UAVs, automobiles, ships, and robots.

Day 3

Impressive GUI with LVGL and SquareLine Studio for RT-Thread-Powered Boards: In this presentation, Gábor Kiss-Vámosi, Founder of LVGL, will introduce the key benefits of using the LVGL library and its drag-and-drop UI editor, called SquareLine Studio, for creating graphical user interfaces targeting embedded systems.

RT-Thread for Field-Oriented Motor Control: In this presentation, Tristan Ritchie, who is a Software Engineer at the Cambridge Design Partnership engineering consultancy, will detail the kernel and board support package (BSP) optimizations that are required for high-performance field-oriented motor control.

The Power of IoT-Running RT-Thread on ESP8266: In this presentation, Recan, who is an ESP8266 expert with IoT and RTOS expertise, will provide an analysis of the rapid development and advantages of RT-Thread in the field of RTOS. Among other topics, Recan will offer an in-depth overview of how the ESP8266 equipped with RT-Thread competes in the IoT.

Remember that the talks discussed above are just a sampling from each day; there are many other presentations scheduled for the conference.

I'm an electronics and computing engineer + freelance marketing consultant + freelance technical writer (books, whitepapers, brochures, datasheets, marketing materials, website content). I cover electronic design from PCBs to SoCs to embedded systems, along with most areas of EDA design and verification.
