Embedded Device and IoT FAQs
Embedded Devices and IoT often store personally identifiable user data and connection configurations to communicate with the internet, base station or other devices. They typically operate using embedded operating systems or microcontrollers. Some examples include:
- Fitness Trackers
- GPS Systems
- Home Security
- IP Cameras
- Health Monitors
- Smart TVs or Fridges
- Amazon, Google and Apple Home Devices
