The Blooming Era of Embedded Operating System in China

The 25th ESBF Forum Held in Hangzhou, China

As the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence rapidly develop, and the infrastructure of 5G being advanced, embedded OSes are increasingly play an important role in smart systems. In light of the current external and international environmental factors, healthy growth of domestic intelligent OS is critical. In late August 2019, Beihang University School of Computer, Beihang Hangzhou Innovation Park, China Electronic Technology Standardization Institute, and ESBF hosted the 25th ESBF forum with the topic "The Development of Embedded System Technology and China's Embedded System Industry" to discuss about the industry.
The forum focuses on two topics: "Embedded OS in the AIoT Era" and "Status Quo and Future of China's Embedded OSes". We have invited scholars and practitioners that practice embedded OS research, education, development, and open-source project maintenance to the discussion hosted by ESBF secretary in chief Allan He. The forum touched based on topics like new embedded OS technologies, industrial opportunities, business model, standardization of IoT OS, ecosystem construction, and international cooperation. More than 120 participants from close to 50 institutions/companies participated in the forum.
Microcontroller and Embedded System Application journal chief editor Prof. Limin He and Yuzhan Wu, Vice Dean of the Beihang University Hangzhou Innovation Park gave introduction speeches. Prof. He illustrated a bright future of China's embedded OSes, describing China's embedded OS as "born at the right time, standing at the frontier of development, overlooking huge market prospect". Vice Dean Wu introduced the Innovation Park to the audience.
