How Does an IoT OS Differ to a Traditional RTOS?

Making It Easier for Developers to Build IoT Devices

Today’s devices need a dependable real-time operating system (RTOS) to provide basic services, including scheduling and memory allocation. However, to address the demand for connected devices, an Internet of Things (IoT) OS is needed to deliver much more than a traditional RTOS to help developers build and maintain the essential functions of a connected embedded system.

This white paper covers the special requirements the IoT places on the operating system and describes how Mbed OS addresses these requirements.
