Of all the buzzwords relevant to AWS, IoT may be "delivering the fastest,"

AWS CEO Andy Jassy said, but there's plenty of room for development.


														
							

Along with the new OS, called Amazon FreeRTOS, AWS on Wednesday announced a service called IoT one-click to easily create Lambda triggers, AWS IoT Device Management, AWS IoT Device Defender, AWS IoT Analytics, as well as AWS Greengress ML Inference.

The vast majority of smaller devices, however, are not connected to the cloud. Many small devices such as smoke detectors don’t house a CPU — they run on MCUs. To enable connectivity for those devices, Amazon is introducing Amazon FreeRTOS, an IoT microcontroller operating system. It extends FreeRTOS, a popular real-time OS, with libraries that enable local and cloud connectivity and security. It should soon enable over-the-air updates. It’s open source and available on GitHub.

Meanwhile, for simple IoT use cases, AWS is rolling out AWS IoT 1-Click. It allows for the simple creation of an AWS Lambda trigger to execute a specific action on any device.
