[Embedded Live Theater] Managing Resource Utilization in Embedded Components

Resource Utilization (memory, CPU, network) is a primary concern when developing deeply embedded software components or deploying software into a SWAP constrained environment.  Gaining insight into memory utilization within your infrastructure components is necessary for architects and engineers as they develop and deploy these systems, but this can be particularly challenging when using commercial software. Learn the tools and techniques necessary to avoid mismanaged system resources that often lead to reduced scalability, poor performance, and increased deployment costs.

[Embedded Live Theater] Develop Secure Sensor Application Code Properly: Use an Automated Tool Suite
The Internet of Things has created a variety of new endpoints – from network printers and “smart” light bulbs, to any of a thousand types of sensor. These sensors often use unsophisticated microprocessors, with few hardware security features. It is therefore vital that they run secure application code. This presentation will discuss how a best-practice development process can provide that code, and how an automated tool suite can make such a process effective and efficient.

[Embedded Live Theater] Embedding Analytics into Devices and Sensors

Embedded analytics makes sensors and devices smarter, enables local control and reduces the volume of raw data sent to the Cloud. This requires small analytics agents that can run within existing processor and memory capacity without impacting performance. It is challenging to provide high functionality and flexibility within a such small footprint. This presentation explains how this can be done and provides a live demo of an embedded analytics agent.
