Creating multi-purpose hardware with IoT app stores
The traditional approach to IoT requires customized hardware and kernels with a monolithic software image being flashed at the manufacturing stage leaving devices static. This renders devices unable to evolve functionality and subject to unmitigated security risks.
A new software-defined IoT approach helps produce multi-purpose hardware with software that updates automatically helping to patch security and bug fixes. Canonical’s IoT app store offering facilitates this new age of IoT, allowing busin…
