"Best open source OS for microcontrollers ."

What do you like best?

First of all till now I have found it to be the best OS for microcontrollers which help to program, deploy, secure and manage small and low power edge devices. By the help of software libraries, it makes easy to securely connect the small and low power edge devices to AWS cloud services. The advantage of large ecosystem of existing tools developed for the FreeRTOS kernel can be easily taken through with Amazon FreeRTOS.

What do you dislike?

I have found a few points which I don't like at all. The usage of services and functions is very complex to use and the amount of services are overwhelming .

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will definitely recommend it to others because it's not necessary to be an AWS customer to use any of the Amazon FreeRTOS libraries. The Amazon FreeRTOS gives you the flexibility to easily build IoT solutions on a variety of chipsets and supports a variety of architectures

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Amazon FreeRTOS provides free and open source security and connectivity libraries that are designed to work with, are tested with, and are supplied fully integrated with.The using of FreeRTOS makes everything faster and easier.Now its very easy for me to find if my device will run Amazon FreeRTOS and interoperate with AWS IoT services or not.

"Amazon FreeRTOS"

What do you like best?

This software is easy for applications to connect to AWS IoT & AWS Greengrass, directly, and without having smart gateways acting as intermediaries. At start up you get components for basic MQTT communication, AWS endpoint discovery, over the air firmware updates, and others.

As a great plus lightweight devices, sensors and actuators, can be implemented using this system as they will use MQTT to communicate with the Greengrass core, eliminating the need to integrate other communications protocols to the system. This is just the beginning of the system project. We will update further on as the project progresses.

What do you dislike?

There are security issues with the system that has added risk that could lead to information leaking, a denial of service attack and other threats. And another is that the CPU loads at 100 percent for some seconds. Don't know why this is necessary, and not sure as to what is going on to have that happen. But the security threats are the most important of my dislikes. Would like to see what they do with that regard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other options such as CoreOS but just try it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So far, we are in the beginning stages of the trying the system against CoreOS.

What IoT Operating Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"What I think about Amazon FreeRTOS"

What do you like best?

It is a low-cost and very efficient program/app, with a secure operating system. I am able to connect to the cloud easily. It only runs a trusted software, using the Code Signing service. I can connect with anything from fitness trackers, to security systems, to most household appliances.

What do you dislike?

I'll have to admit that it took me quite some time to learn about Amazon FreeRTOS. Actually, there's still a lot to learn. I found myself getting extremely frustrated and had to "walk away from" it for a while.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to connect my Amazon FreeRTOS device, and with Bluetooth it uses "Bluetooth Low Energy." I can do all this with my Android phone. However, I use wifi, so this helps with the lower power issues.

The ease of making the IoT data pass through all the mess I had before with some best features of amazon with the help of freertos

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to integrate data tracker tech into some parts of the car which was first hard to integrate and configuring the whole thing for test would have been a nightmare. Freertos made it a day for us.
