New digital contract legislation in the EU and Germany has manufacturers scrambling to address a prevalent weakness in the world of Android IoT devices—the lack of regular software updates to consumers. A lack of regular OTA (“Over The Air”) updates can leave critical security holes open. And, as shown in this proof-of-concept “hack” of a…
Android is currently the most popular operating system in the world. Yet, perhaps because of our familiarity with Android as the smartphone operating system, there is a tendency to dismiss it as somehow less than worthy. A POS system is a point-of-sale solution used in retail and related industries. Many of these professional devices run…
emteria released its Android distribution emteria.OS for the Raspberry Pi 4B. The live release convinces through increased overall performance, support of all emteria functionality and, having Android 11 as its core, with the latest Android user experience.
In software parlance, Android Things is already as good as gone. While some commercial projects may continue to exist after January 2021, all support will end, and all project data will be deleted after January 2022. A replacement of Android Things was sought in vain by many users.
To use Android or Linux in a professional embedded device is difficult to answer for product managers and software architects. We try to give some guidance and help by technically comparing the two operating systems in that context.
Do you want to create, scale and operate a fleet of Android-based IoT devices? Then join us in our live demo of emteria.OS and its associated online services like mobile device management (MDM).
Spending quite a few days and extra hours on bringing the latest Android version to the Raspberry Pi 4, we are more than happy to announce this beta release. This major step rewards users with greatly improved system performance, the ability to implement many new use cases, and ultimately better products.
Android is an operating system full of benefits for users and product developers alike. However, to take full advantage of Android and its capabilities in industrial use cases, a managed version of it is the best choice. In this blog post, you’ll learn why this is the case and why emteria.OS saves you time and money when you need to create, scale, and operate a fleet of smart devices.
In this article, you will learn how managed operating systems support fleet management. Initially, we look at what a managed OS is, how it improves your processes, and why it is the better choice in the long term. Finally, you will see how emteria’s customers benefit from emteria.OS, the managed Android for Raspberry Pi and other custom hardware.
The Android-based operating system emteria.OS is finally released for the Raspberry Pi 4B. Embedded applications and use cases can count on more computing power and better performance while staying cost-effective. Also, it is possible to manage Raspberry Pi 4 device fleets through the emteria web portal.
In 2020 we globally face over 22 billion connected IoT devices of which 54% are non-consumer devices. The recent pace of growth and development in embedded and IoT technologies has led to impressive new devices and services. This came along with new challenges, too. One of the main challenges is to ensure device security and…
We are shifting our knowledge base articles to this portal and extending it with new explanations and tutorials. We hope you will find it helpful and easy to use.
