Embedded Live 2018
The Embedded Live 2018 exhibition in association with Feabhas offered industry a great mix of exhibitors showing a vast range of products and services, plus it was supported by four half-day conference programmes.
Embedded Live brings to the UK a conference for Embedded Software Developers which covers current industry “hot topics” in four, focused sections. The conference will bring together engineers and experts from across the world of embedded software development, to share their experience and knowledge. The focus will be on techniques and user stories rather than on tools and product pitches. The conference will comprise of four, half day sessions.
This year’s four topics are:
Tuesday 25 Sept Morning Session
Agile for Embedded
There is an increasing uptake of Agile techniques within Embedded Software Development. There are many lessons to be learned, as there is little published about how Agile works with the unique requirements of embedded development.
Tuesday 25 Sept Afternoon Session
Security and Safety
High-integrity design, implementation and testing is vital to both safety-critical and secure systems. Safety is an enduring issue for Embedded Systems and continues to be a vital topic as electronics takes us into new areas such as driverless cars and medical devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) has driven an ever-increasing pressure on the security of embedded systems too.
Wednesday 26 Sept Morning Session
Real-Time Operating Systems
Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) are at the core of many embedded systems. The correct selection and application of an RTOS is a key architectural decision for any embedded project. Many concepts of concurrent design are poorly understood by the developers of embedded software.
Wednesday 26 Sept Afternoon Session
Quality and Reliability
Software should always fulfil the needs of its users. Beyond that embedded software developers are tasked with ensuring systems meet many other quality requirements – compliance to standards; providing extensible, flexible and maintainable designs; providing high levels of dependability, reliability and robustness. The management of these issues is vital to a successful project.
