Innovative developments within embedded engineering services 

Technical innovations are moving very quickly within the device development sector. Many new technologies are emerging within the embedded engineering industry. These new trends require firmware developers to keep up with the times and invest time and effort to maintain their technical knowledge and skillset.  

Edge computing solutions 

Embedded engineering services are innovating by developing edge computing solutions, allowing for data processing and analysis to occur closer to the data source. This reduces network lag (latency) and bandwidth usage, making it ideal for applications such as industrial automation, autonomous vehicles, and smart cities. 

AI integration 

Embedded engineering services are integrating artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities into embedded systems, enabling them to make intelligent decisions and adapt to changing conditions. This includes implementing machine learning algorithms for predictive maintenance, image recognition, and natural language processing in embedded devices. 

Secure boot and firmware over-the-air (OTA) updates 

To enhance security and streamline maintenance, embedded engineering services are innovating by implementing secure boot mechanisms and enabling firmware updates over-the-air. This ensures that embedded devices remain protected against unauthorised access and vulnerabilities while allowing for seamless software updates remotely. Customers expect product enhancements over time, firmware over the air updates help you deliver these more easily. 

Low-power wireless connectivity 

With the growing demand for battery-operated IoT devices, embedded engineering services are innovating by developing low-power wireless connectivity solutions. This includes advancements in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Zigbee, LoRaWAN, and NB-IoT technologies, enabling energy-efficient communication in IoT ecosystems. 

Embedded vision systems 

Embedded engineering services are innovating in the field of computer vision by developing embedded vision systems for applications such as surveillance, robotics, and augmented reality. This involves integrating cameras, image sensors, and machine vision algorithms into embedded devices to enable real-time image processing and analysis. 

Sensor fusion and IoT edge analytics  

To extract meaningful insights from sensor data in IoT environments, embedded engineering services are innovating by implementing sensor fusion techniques and edge analytics algorithms. This allows embedded devices to combine data from multiple sensors, perform data aggregation and analysis locally, and transmit only relevant information to the cloud for further processing. 

Digital twin technology 

Embedded engineering services are leveraging digital twin technology to create virtual representations of physical devices and systems. This enables simulation, monitoring, and predictive analytics, facilitating optimisation, and troubleshooting of embedded systems in real-time. 

Real-time operating systems (RTOS) optimisation 

Embedded engineering services are innovating by optimising real-time operating systems (RTOS) for embedded systems, improving performance, efficiency, and reliability. This includes developing lightweight kernels, task scheduling algorithms, and memory management techniques tailored to specific embedded applications. 

Custom hardware accelerators 

To meet the vast computational demands of AI and machine learning applications, embedded engineering services are innovating by designing custom hardware accelerators, such as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and graphics processing units (GPUs). These accelerators offload intensive computational tasks from the main processor, improving performance and energy efficiency. 

Blockchain integration 

Embedded engineering services are exploring the integration of blockchain technology into embedded systems to enhance security, transparency, and trust in IoT networks. This includes implementing blockchain-based authentication, data integrity verification, and decentralised communication protocols for embedded devices.
