Over the last few years, the pace of digitalization has been gradually blurring the lines between hardware and software. Sensors, chips, and devices with embedded software systems are getting more sophisticated day by day. At the same time their performance capabilities are also increasing, leading to enhanced functionalities. Industries now readily implement embedded systems in their critical products.
Why do Industries Need Embedded System Services?
Embedded systems now form the core of industrial systems. Hardware and the code that goes into the hardware, firmware, helps manage operation of sensors, field devices and other industrial devices like PLCs and control systems. Industries benefit by adopting good embedded systems engineering services.
The compact size of embedded systems makes it easy to fit them within other industrial components. Designed to handle one task at a time means that the software or firmware updates are required less frequently resulting in minimal downtime due to system upgrades. Embedded systems consume less power and enable better diagnostics and maintenance. Embedded systems tend to be secure because they are self-contained. However, as embedded systems can control and monitor complex field devices one needs to take a cautious approach in designing an embedded system. When you avail embedded engineering services, ensure that security is a top priority. One other benefit, though some could perceive it as a moral issue, is the reduction in manual labour due to embedded systems.

1. What is the use of embedded systems in Industrial Automation?
The uses of embedded systems in industrial automation are:
Control – An embedded system can be used to control a particular function or aspect of an industrial device/machine. Monitoring – Embedded systems can help with general monitoring of the device/machine or monitoring.
2. What makes embedded systems so widely used?
Embedded systems are now being widely used in industries such as automotive, manufacturing and also telecom, banking, aerospace, home appliances, security, and consumer electronics. The widespread application of embedded systems is because they allow for real-time computing, higher device performance, and accurate results. Moreover, the small sized embedded systems makes integration simple and they consume less power.
3. What are the future trends in embedded systems?
In future, we can see embedded systems driven by AI algorithms. The concept of cognitive embedded system is gaining popularity. It will find applications in visualisation tools, deep learning applications, mesh networking, and embedded devices security.
