Embedded Live 2018
The Embedded Live 2018 exhibition in association with Feabhas will offer industry a great mix of exhibitors showing a vast range of products and services, plus it will be supported by 4 ½ day conference programmes. To find out more about how you can be involved email firstname.lastname@example.org
Embedded Live brings to the UK a conference for Embedded Software Developers which covers current industry “hot topics” in four, focussed 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.
This year’s four topics are:
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.
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.
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.
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.
‘Following the success of our Agile for Embedded conference a last year, we are delighted to work with WNIE to bring the same format to a larger conference, addressing more topics from the world of Embedded Software. The UK lacks a national conference that offers practical and pragmatic advice to developers and we hope we can change this together.’
