With an Internet of Things (IoT) revolution looking upon the technology world, all the top companies are gearing up themselves for the challenge. Joining the race with a new operating system is tech giant Samsung.

The Operating System hasn't officially received a name yet but it's main function would be to assist electronic devices that we use in our day-to-day lives into executing simple tasks almost instantly, without any human intervention. For example, it will be able to instruct your room's light to switch on before so that you don't have to walk into dark.

More information about the operating system including its name is expected to be unveiled in the Samsung Developer Conference slated to take place in San Francisco at the end of this month.

"Samsung will announce our new, open-source IoT real-time operating system (RTOS), which has a wide scope of features while maintaining a lightweight and efficient footprint," reads the session agenda.

According to reports doing round the tech world, the Operating System could allow developers to use Samsung's SAMI cloud platform for dispensing security and analytical services. This would work as a charm in the summer season, when the ACs would start on their own after temperature is set to it through a smart meter.

Samsung has huge hopes pinned on the IoT future as the tech giant has plans to use the technology to provide the customers with a plethora of industrial equipments, wearables and smart home appliances.

Samsung prides on its new, open-source IoT real-time operating system (RTOS), as it promises to provide a wide variety of features while at the same time maintains an efficient and lightweight footprint. The biggest standout feature of the real-time operating system is its ability to execute commands immediately, without any loss of time whatsoever. For instance,The Mars Rover is running on an Intel manufacturers real time operating system.

Samsung has taken a business based strategic decision to keep the OS open-source as it would allow the company to gain back its lost sheen and position in the market, and will also help giving life to good levels of interoperability between electronic gadgets that are connected through the Internet of Things.

In 2014, Samsung purchased SmartThings, a smart home company. Last year, the firm rolled out a smart home kit that might be the first step towards IoT devices integration throughout the home. With the future open-source real time OS, Samsung could set itself as flag bearer for the IoT home appliances.
