Another IT revolution!

According to the National Research Council, Information technology (IT) is on the verge of another revolution.

The use of Embedded [Networked] Systems throughout society could well dwarf previous milestones in the information revolution. These systems of embedded computers have the potential to change radically the way people interact with their environment by linking together a range of devices and sensors that will allow information to be collected, shared, and processed in unprecedented ways.

So, just what is an embedded system?

In short – one can understand it as a combination of hardware and software which together form a component of a larger machine.

An embedded system is designed to run on its own without human intervention, and may be required to respond to events in real time. Embedded systems are used in industrial machines, automobiles, medical equipment, cameras, household appliances, airplanes, vending machines, cellular phone, PDA’s, toys and many other devices.

And they are everywhere !
