The Internet of Things (IoT) is technological based on embedded-systems and products developed out of them. This includes things like automation components, systems in the sector of vehicle construction or medical equipment. Our trade journal embedded Design is aimed at producers and developers of embedded systems, components and products. We report
about themes in the sector of product development and optimization up to application reports which outline application scenarios of the IoT - embedded in the context of industry 4.0 and CPS (cyber-physial-systems). Beside technologies and complete systems, the successful Design-In is a main focus of the reporting. Information about hardware, software and workflow reflect a comprehensive attempt, always targeting a faster development and production. Across sectors we consider aspects from safety and security, software development, maintenance, rapid protytyping and M2M up to topics like IPCs, requirements engineering and cloud. Interviews, technical papers as well as the presentation of product releases create market transpareny. A special form of editorial work are the comprehensive market overviews. In all of the six issues sectors like consumer electronis, machine building, transport, aerospace and space technology and building technologies are in our focus.
