The Internet of Things (“IoT”) refers to the ability of common gadgets and appliances to connect to the Internet and to send and receive data. Relying on a wide network of sensors and an infrastructure that allows them to move it through intelligent gateways. These devices are at the core of the latest business transformations. From home automation systems that enable climate control before you leave work, to monitoring bracelets and car systems, their goal is to improve standards for consumers and businesses alike.
The number of “things” connected to the Internet will greatly surpass the number of people on the planet soon, and the Yocto Project is at the core of this technology trend. The Yocto Project yields a community effort that brings together OSVs, ISVs and OEMs to help accelerate software development and deployment of IoT based solutions for the smallest to the largest IoT device. The Yocto Project framework is focused on aligning all these types of organizations around key system elements, empowering the ecosystem to build innovative solutions that gain recognition and acceptance in the marketplace.
