At the Microsoft booth, Toradex demonstrated its multiplatform system connected to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub – the Cloud Parking demo. Toradex System on Modules (SoMs) were employed in the access control, license plate recognition and the payment system, the communication between them made only through the internet, using only the Azure services. Linux, Windows 10 IoT Core, and Windows Embedded Compact are used as Operating Systems on the modules. Additionally, an interesting Toradex showcase included their new Heterogeneous Multicore Low Power demo featuring the Colibri iMX7D based on the NXP i.MX 7 Dual Core SoC.
My first time trying on the Microsoft Hololens headmounted augmented reality system running on an Intel cherrytrail system selling at $3000 on the Microsoft store. In this video I walk around the Microsoft booth at Embedded World, checking out some of Microsoft's partners including Microtronics smart bicvcle running Silicon Labs ARM Cortex-M system through Windows Server. This video features Toradex at 4:13 into the video demonstrating its multiplatform system connected to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub where Linux, Windows 10 IoT Core, and Windows Embedded Compact are used as Operating Systems on the modules featuring Heterogeneous Multicore Low Power Colibri iMX7D based on the NXP i.MX 7 Dual Core SoC.
Running Altera Cyclone V SoC HPS consists of a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor, a rich set of peripherals, and a multiport memory controller shared with logic in the FPGA, giving you the flexibility of programmable logic and the cost savings of hard intellectual property (IP) with the Intel ARM SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite. The Arrow Chameleon96 Community Board features an Intel PSG Cyclone V SoC FPGA based system that adheres to the Linaro http://96Boards.org open platform specification. The board includes industry standard interfaces and expansion headers for 96Boards compatible mezzanine cards and interface kits. Unlike other 96Boards, the Chameleon96 board includes Intel PSG's SoC FPGA which combines the performance of a dual core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with the flexibility of programmable logic, providing the ultimate in system customization. Programmable logic is ideal for accelerating embedded software with custom hardware.
The Chameleon96 board includes a quantum-resistant Key Agreement Protocol and Digital Signature Algorithm reference design from SecureRF. These Public Key methods feature small, fast, and very low-energy solutions designed to accelerate the development of authentication and data protection solutions for the Internet of Things. For availability of additional security methods for the Chameleon96 board, including Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Updates and Secure Firmware Delivery.
TI is displaying how they plan to increase efficiency and flexibility of smart factories, demonstrating analog components for temperature measurement, humidity, bluetooth interfaces, IO-Link to AM5728 dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 at 1.5Ghz and more.
Karim Yaghmour (author of Embedded Android: Porting, Extending, and Customizing) and Chris Simmonds (author of Mastering Embedded Linux Programming) talk about the state of Android and Linux in the Embedded World.
The mbed OS 5.4 release incorporates functionality to prepare for mbed Cloud device management services including bootloader and filesystem infrastructure and the certified Thread 1.1 stack for developers with target platform support up to 74 targets. Since there's been releases up to mbed OS 5.4.4 you can read more about it here.
Geniatech presents their new Embedded and Develpment board Solutions, with full in-house support and development for customized development for interested customers around the world. Supporting Windows 10 IoT Core, Android and some Linux. Geniatech shows their new Developer Board 4X, the world's smallest 64bit Qualcomm 410 based board, can be used for home applications, to easily connect everything to advanced IoT.
Toradex shows off Rimac Concept One at the Qt booth at Embedded World 2017. RIMAC Automobili Concept One is an ultra-fast electric super car with a top-speed of 365km/h, a 0-60mph acceleration of only 2,5 seconds, 1224HP, 1600Nm Torque. RIMAC chose Qt and Toradex as they provided a true ‘out-of-box’ experience to create one of the most advanced In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems and instrument clusters on the market, from scratch. The car uses several Apalis System on Modules throughout the car. This video also talks about Toradex's Heterogeneous Multicore Low Power and Fast Boot.
Aconno is showing off the world's first Bluetooth5 module based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 ARM Cortex-M4 device which I filmed here and here it features Bluetooth 5, Thread, ANT+, can run for 25 years on a CR23032 coin cell battery, developers can connect through a tag connect interface and it can support USB and NFC.

SCEWO is a stairclimbing wheelchair equipped with a Toradex Apalis iMX6 SoM - born from a master’s degree thesis from Zurich University (ETH), which demonstrates what can be done using Toradex Computer on Modules (CoMs)/System on Modules(SoMs) in safety-critical applications. Other engaging demos included TAQ, the balancing robot, featuring Toradex’s Colibri iMX7 SoM with NXP i.MX 7 processor, a rover using the Apalis TK1 SoM with the NVIDIA TK1 to recognize street signs, and many more at Toradex’s booth at Embedded World 2017. Toradex also mentioned its launch of two new SoMs based on NXP i.MX 8QuadMax and NXP i.MX 6ULL: Apalis iMX8 and Colibri iMX6ULL respectively. The Colibri iMX6ULL offers a low-cost and power efficient platform, along with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, targeting the emerging IoT and connected market; and the Apalis iMX8 offers high-performance and powerful graphics for Computer Vision applications.
