—TRON Forum has published the “FY2019 Survey Report on Embedded Real-time OS Usage Trends” to its member
TRON Forum (Location: Shinagawa, Tokyo, Chair: Ken Sakamura, Dean of INIAD (Information Networking for Innovation and Design), Toyo University) is a proponent of TRON Project, and aims to establish the Open IoT environment that is free of restrictions imposed by organizations or applications by using open source, open data and open API.
It has compiled “FY2019 Survey Report on Embedded Real-time OS Usage Trends.” The result shows that approximately 60 percent of the share of "the API of embedded OS in use” is held by T-Kernel specification API (including μT-Kernel specification API) and ITRON specification API. The result shows that TRON RTOS family has occupied the topmost share for the 24 consecutive years since the start of the survey.
The FY2019 Survey Report indicates that:
- The international awareness of TRON RTOS API has been increased by “IEEE2050-201” based on μT-Kernel 2.0 that has been made available to the public as IEEE standard.
- People pay more attention to edge nodes today, so there are increasing number of usage examples of TCP/IP.
This survey has been held as periodic annual measurement for 24 times so far at the venue of Embedded Technology (ET, organized by Japan Embedded Systems Technology Association: JASA) among ET & IoT Technology 2019 and its predecessor. The latest FY2019 Survey Report summarizes the result of the questionnaire answered by the respondents through the special website for this survey or on the premise of ET2019 (Embedded Technology 2019) which was held in PACIFICO YOKOHAMA from November 20 to November 22, 2019.
TRON Forum publishes the whole content of the survey result on the members-only web pages for Executive Committee/A-/i-/B-/Academic members. If corporations and the members other than the above need the survey result, “Limited to a division-only readership version (100,000 yen excluding tax)” and “Company-wide readership version (200,000 yen excluding tax)” will be on sale through the web shop (https://www.personal-media.co.jp/webshop/) operated by Personal Media Corporation, one of the Executive Committee members of TRON Forum, from the middle of April.
