With the emanation of new hardware and software technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), the embedded system is reinforced to enter into a new epoch in history. This enhancement trends foremost in the consumer electronic goods. Hence the IoT solutions foster the vast new innovative opportunities for the embedded developers.

Embedded devices are becoming more effective with technology like wearable gadgets. Hence the embedded developers should establish a seamless connectivity with one another to enable IoT in embedded infrastructure. The main issue associated with this is the ability to manage and take control of all edge elements centrally with the aid of remote management and cloud-based data delivery and enhancement of edge devices. The main system associated with these embedded devices is real-time operating system (RTOS). The main challenges associated in the IoT enabled RTOS is scalability, security and safety.

This special issue solicits mainly on the innovation techniques for embedded developers and to enhance the scalable, reliable and connective characteristics of IoT enabled embedded infrastructure.
