IoT (Internet of Things) can transfer data from one network source to another with very less power consumption. There are various commercial operating systems to power IoT; however not every operating system is ideal for IoT, which is why we require some variety in the operating system space. The usage of traditional operating systems like windows, iOS, and Linux cannot be made possible for IoT devices. Various technology corporations have begun to exploit the usage of IoT to their advantageous profit gain and consequently the undeniable requirement of apt operating system to suit the needs of IoT devices. Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) possess the capability to work in a complex environment entailing complicated tasks. It generally includes environments that encompass the usage of IoT devices in aviation, industries and health care. However, the usage of less complicated operating systems like processing power and RAM are also viable but for less intricate environments. Less complex operating systems are advantageous, for their less consumption of power and reduced resource needs.
