Top Open Source Operating System(OS) for IoT

SEE Also :

          The word OpenSource is introduced in 1998 and first OS introduced as Linux. That is very successful project and today now become giant role of the OpenSouce in the digital world. Now days OpenSource is addopted by th IoT companies like IBM, Samsung, Google, Huawei and ARM.

Here below shown the top Operating System for Internet Of Things. Keep in Mind : All OS have to common properties - Low memory footprint and High Power Efficency


Google Brillo :

Google made the an Android based OS for Embedded devices. Brillo run on low end devices with 32MB of RAM and 128Mb of ROM

Google Brillo OS support the WiFi, Blutooth, Thread technologies. Brillo is more secure compare to the other OS. Also it's supports the architecure is Intel, ARM and MIPS.
