This topic provides resources for embedded software and hardware developers integrating sensors, processors and connectivity into their designs.
Much is being made of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the associated need for wireless connectivity for industrial sensors. But the networking needs of industrial devices and applications are distinct from the consumer world, especially in terms of reliability and security.
To support embedded/IoT cost-effectiveness resulting in strong technical constraints, Java platforms for embedded/IoT/wearable devices need to follow a set of requirements that make them unique compared to Java implementations on other systems.
