Feedback form is now closed.
One year ago at ELC in San Diego, a new RTOS named Zephyr was announced as a Linux Foundation project. Zephyr is a small footprint OS positioned as the Linux of IoT. Few products are known to use Zephyr. As such it is hard to find good feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of the OS, or the real-world experience of building a consumer product with it.

Neil Armstrong and Fabien Parent from BayLibre have been working on what may be the first consumer electronics product using Zephyr. They will share their reasons for selecting Zephyr from among the many RTOS choices available. They will also share their experiences contributing support for a new platform into the upstream Zephyr project and using it as a base for product development of a new wearable device.
