Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) have been a fixture of embedded computing for a long time and, more recently, IoT. Popular open-source options such as FreeRTOS and Zephyr support a wide range of hardware and provide features such as storage and networking. However, many open source projects aim to deliver many of the same features in a "bare metal" approach. In other words: they deliver frameworks that enable your applications to run directly on the hardware. Given this, which approach is right for your project? In this presentation, Frédéric Desbiens will explain the pros and cons of RTOSes and the bare metal approach. You will learn about the architecture and feature set of FreeRTOS and Zephyr in the process. You will also discover contrasting os-less frameworks such as Arduino, Espressif IDF, and Drogue IoT, which uses the Rust programming language.
