RIOT is a smart and developer-friendly open source operating system designed specifically for the Internet of Things. RIOT is vendor-independent and community-driven, based on a microkernel architecture that allows C and C++ application programming. In contrast to other operating systems with similar memory footprint RIOT provides both full multi-threading and real-time capabilities. RIOT supports multiple network stacks, including an IPv6 6LoWPAN stack and standard protocols such as RPL, UDP, and CoAP.
RIOT’s motto is “if your tiny IoT device can’t run Linux, use RIOT” – it provides Linux-like programming if IoT apps on low-powered devices but, until now, was missing an appealing user interface (UI). Now, in combination with ‘Snappy’ Ubuntu Core, RIOT can feature a user-friendly UI that will allow easy management and integration of IoT devices in existing networks.
