Samsung Developing IoT OS

samsungSamsung is creating a new operating system for the Internet of Things and is planning on its first reveal at their Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco next month, according to this article in PCWorld.

The agenda clearly spells out their intention:

“Samsung will announce our new, open-source IoT real-time operating system (RTOS), which has a wide scope of features while maintaining a lightweight and efficient footprint.”

In addition sessions will include ones on: IoT Security; Building a (Cool) Home Gateway in 45 Minutes; Building Industrial IoT Enterprise Services with Insator; How do I add Hardware Devices to the SmartThings Platform?; and many more.

This OS direction makes perfect sense to us after their acquisition of SmartThings in the summer of 2014 and their very public pronouncements about the future belongs to internet connected things.

It will be interesting to see what they do and we’ll keep an eye on it for you.
