T-Engine Forum has changed its name to TRON Forum effective on April 1, 2015, and aims to make a next leap forward as the nucleus of TRON Project which started in 1984 and marked its 30th anniversary last year.
T-Engine Forum is an NPO with the activity of international scope to promote the standards to improve the efficiency of real-time embedded systems development and to develop the infrastructure for context-awareness to implement ubiquitous computing environment. (The original ideas behind the standards were proposed by Ken Sakamura, Professor at the University of Tokyo.)
The name of the forum has been changed because the initial goal of T-Engine Forum has been achieved by developing T-Engine board as standardized development environment. And it can show clearly that the forum is the nucleus of the project by being named after “TRON” which is well known worldwide as a project name.
TRON Forum aims to realize the open IoT free from constraints of organizations and applications based on “open source,” “open data” and “open API.”
