Embedded system development

The trend of developing in-built software in a device is evolving with the world marching towards more ingenious solutions. Especially, with the inception of IoT and IIoT, an embedded system has become the catalyst for intelligent networks to emerge. As the evolution process is compounding, embedded software development trends are also changing with the passage of time. Today’s article will highlight some of the recent trends in embedded software systems.

Development of autonomous and electric vehicles:
The use of autonomous and electric vehicles will affirm a positive influence on the embedded software industry. The registrations of electric cars augmented worldwide in markets in 2020 despite the Covid pandemic. 2020 witnessed more than 10 million electric cars on the roads across the globe with battery-electric models lashing the expansion. Automotive companies are strengthening their embedded software designs with the rise of connected cars.

Development of modern medical equipment:
The outbreak of COVID-19 was quite intimidating. The need for ventilators and advanced medical equipment rapidly rose globally. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a considerable surge in the adoption of embedded software components for the development of advanced and modern medical equipment and facilities which have bolstered the overall market outlook of embedded technology. To add more, the trend of using chips and processors in healthcare which has intelligence and functionality will be able to monitor the conditions of the patients and connect them with a network-based diagnosis process.

Development of tight IoT security:
The internet of things is an important aspect of the technology industry. However, the issues revolving around its security are changing. Hence, implementing IoT security solutions along with embedded devices like robots and AI is a secure solution. Some of the protocols might get riddled while using IoT-related solutions with modernized technology. So to avoid such mishandling, the use of the embedded device with high-security options helps for betterment.

Development of battery power:
The massively increasing demand for electric vehicles, mobile phones, tablets, and renewable energy is forcing manufacturers to develop batteries that will store more energy and require minimal cost in the production process. As per a Bloomberg report, the battery energy density has almost tripled in the last 10 years. The phone manufacturers are also increasing the performance of over battery life to significantly increase battery performance. The embedded technology industry will be using these performance gains to discover new applications.

Development of AI (Artificial Intelligence):
The growing trend of Artificial Intelligence is strongly showing its mark in embedded systems. For instance, speech recognition technology has improved multifold and online search engine voice recognition is even more simple and sophisticated. The drift is more towards voice search rather than typing keywords. According to research, the market value of the voice recognition trend is expected to reach over 27 billion by 2026. During this study, it was discovered that 50% of searches are estimated to be done by voice. Embedded software devices are changing things rapidly – there is a growing trend of people instructing their smartphones to execute activities like checking emails, exploring directions, and text messages.

Not only speech recognition, but we are also seeing the use of biometrics, AI-powered hardware, robotic automation, and virtual assistance doing wonders. We will soon have the opportunity to explore a lot of other AI-powered technologies- be it with any products or services.

Wrapping up!
The expected years are certainly going to surprise us with the most advanced innovations in the technology sector. Technology has the potential to change the way of seeing things practically rather than technically.
