Paper Abstract

Compared with traditional sensor system, the modern micro-sensor system was characterized with intelligent and internet, and required the sensor system was less volume, much lighter, using less energy and was able to process the great amount of received data by itself, so as to get the best results. But good results often required more resources such as more computing ability and more volume and more power. The traditional embedded OS (Operating System) which often required more resources did not apply to modern micro-sensor system. New embedded OS specialized for modern micro-sensor system had to be developed. The general characters of modern micro-sensor system and its requirements for embedded OS were discussed at first in this paper. Then a variety of embedded OS for micro-sensor system were presented and classified by the realizing principle (realized by methods of components, virtual machine, layered structured, state machine and function library.etc.). The using effect and applied domains of the embedded OS were discussed explicitly. At last the severely key problems, the status and new hot field of the embedded OS were pointed.
