Open source software has an increasing role in embedded system software today, as products are leveraging the new functionality and abstraction emerging. From cars, to wearables, to smart homes, improved energy infrastructure, it surrounds us. There are now more IoT devices on this planet than there are people, and we're on track to double the number of devices in a few short years. The more we interact with these devices, the more we need them to be dependable. We need to bring the quality and security best practices from open source development of clouds and desktops to the resource constrained devices and ensure they can have the appropriate levels of quality, security, maintainability, reliability and in some cases, safety considerations.
