Presenting and exhibiting at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany, Wind River will focus on Internet of Things technologies and trends and the associated opportunities and challenges. Presentations, product demonstrations and live customer applications at the Wind River booth, will all reflect this theme.

Wind River’s presentations at Embedded World 2014 will address a variety of emerging trends and pertinent industry challenges.

"Applying Connectivity, Manageability and Security to Critical Infrastructure" will cover how software development environments with pre-integrated ready-to-use components such as device security, smart connectivity, rich network options, and device management can be used to secure, manage, and connect IoT gateways in the critical infrastructure market.

During "The Redefined Real-Time Operating System", Wind River will discuss its VxWorks real-time operating system that has been reinvented in response to changes in the embedded market landscape. The company will cover the products new features in-depth that address the IoT, machine-to-machine applications, cloud, and security.

Discussing "Internet of Things Security", Wind River will outline how to adapt and apply the security approaches used in IT to deeply embedded resource-constrained environments, while maintaining and improving security in a massively connected, application specific, and often times safety critical embedded world. The company will also discuss the approach of delivering real-time threat intelligence with operational resilience through an end-to-end comprehensive security solution to protect business processes from multiple threat vectors.

Exploring "Virtualization", Wind River will cover how open virtualization technologies can enable many applications and functions to run dedicated operating systems and hardware to consolidate into one system. The company will also investigate real-time virtualization using open source kernel virtualization machine technology to deliver extremely low latency with near native hardware performance, high throughput and virtual node management.

Wind River will also be showcasing a wide range of demonstrations, including its RTOS and open source technologies, software platform for IoT, and solutions for the automotive market.

Jim Douglas, Chief Marketing Officer, Wind River, commented: “The Internet of Things is quite possibly the biggest change that will impact the embedded industry in the coming years with the evolution of standalone embedded systems into massive and powerful networks of devices that deliver unprecedented amounts of data over the Internet. Embedded World provides an ideal forum for the industry to come together to discuss the constantly evolving embedded landscape, and we look forward to helping drive this evolution and leading conversations around key industry topics that address this increasingly connected world.”
