Embedded software

Embedded software - also often called intelligent embedded software - constitutes software that is integrated into mechanical applications. This may be a refrigerator, a device for measuring blood pressure, a car or a production robot - that is, applications which are not in themselves computers. By using embedded software rather than e.g. mechanisms or electronics, it is possible to infuse the application with far more capabilities and potentials for use - and improve its performance, stability and security

Embedded software can be found in our everyday life to an increasing degree - in fact, 80 % of all existing software is embedded. On these page, you can read about embedded software and where it is used - and maybe be inspired as to how you can utilise embedded software in your products or production machinery
