Modern Embedded Firmware Development Practices in the Warehouse Automation Industry
This blog explores the multifaceted realm of modern embedded firmware development, as well as the innovative testing practices that help identify and mitigate bugs early in the process, leading to cost savings and more robust systems.
A Long Way From Home
Over The Air updates (OTA) takes advantage of modern connectivity for devices. Even for devices that aren’t normally connected to communication networks, it’s often possible to connect them to a computer or mobile device that is connected to the network and update them. It’s also become a common part of modern embedded development and release strategy.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 4: Effective Testing
Testing needs to be appropriate, effective, and evolve with the project. That means it needs to verify the appropriate things, meeting the business goals and needs through a multifaceted testing strategy. It needs to be effective, minimizing the likelihood of bugs while minimizing the time spent on testing. It needs to evolve as the project changes and not grow uncontrollably.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 3: Automated
Firmware development teams can eliminate tedious tasks, reduce (human) errors, and enforce standards easily–all while improving the quality, reliability and cost of the product. By identifying common errors early, automation allows frequent testing and, when ready, efficient deployment to production.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 2: Managed Environments
Utilizing a managed environment fosters collaboration and creates stability, reliability, consistency and success in our software development projects. It further allows us to effectively manage and maintain the software environments throughout the development life cycle.
10 Pillars of Modern Embedded. Pillar 1: One Source
Ultimately, having unified control, effective versioning, and traceability of firmware artifacts is paramount in creating high-quality and reliable embedded products. With a single source in place, organizations can ensure their development processes are running optimally for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
