Huawei is working on an Operating System for the Internet of Things (IoT) and as revealed by the company, it will just be of 10 Kilobytes in size.
The telecom giant claims it to be one of a kind, lightest software in the segment and that is why the company is calling it “LiteOS”. It can be integrated in any smart device (smartwatch, washing machine, cars etc), basically making your everyday life simpler and smarter. The OS will be available to all the developers in order to help them in the creation of smart products, however, there is no confirmation whether it will be completely open-source or not.
The company also revealed that the “LiteOS” will also support “zero configuration, auto-discovery, and auto-networking.” Huawei’s idea is to bring together all the devices that we use through a common ecosystem, which will enable them to connect with each other and hence touch our lives in a smarter way. Instead of diverging into the production of appliances, Huawei has come up with this breakthrough idea to bridge the communication gap between the systems.
In accordance with a report published by The Financial Times, William Xu, Huawei’s head of strategy and marketing, also cleared that the company is no way in the race to compete with Operating Systems like Android or iOS, instead it is simply focusing on powering a range of gadgets.
A rather smart move by the company to make its presence in the arena of “Internet of Things,” as this concept is steadily building its way towards the future. There are no confirmations yet reading the launch of the OS, but we are going to hear a lot about it in the coming days.
