Witekio at CES Las Vegas 2023

To make sure that we have our finger on the pulse of all embedded software trends, the Witekio team exhibited (and explored) CES 2023, one of the most influential consumer tech events in the world.

At the show, we launched a new software demonstration on the Witekio booth, as well as our latest software accelerator worldwide (which you can read about below).

Check out our highlights of the event 👉

IoT

Our latest software accelerator, which is an IoT management platform builder for equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will help accelerate connected product and service innovation.

First soft-launched at Witekio’s HQ (Lyon, France) three months ago, it has already seen positive uptake and reviews from clients.

An IoT Connected Service Platform Builder Launch born from 20 years of experience in supporting OEMs

Our embedded software engineers have been working with equipment manufacturers to help develop their most innovative products for over twenty years.

In this time, the industry ecosystem and trends have changed massively, and among the new challenges, OEMs are facing a need for ever more complex IoT software and hardware development, as well as tougher maintenance and cost expectations. We understand and know these pains, which is why we’ve built the Kamea platform to help you navigate the pressures of launching a connected product.

Yocto Migration and Optimisation for W. H. Leary

W. H. Leary, a leading packaging manufacturer, needed to migrate their OS and Kernel due to an end-of-life CPU and OS.

The Monet platform – which automates the company’s world-class packaging manufacturing system -is a vital part of the companies offering, so extra care was needed to ensure ease of use and system longevity.

After an in-depth consulting workshop phase, W. H. Leary selected Witekio’s architecture concept, and development team, to deliver the:

  • Reimagining of a real-time processing system, from the lower levels up
  • Yocto BSP development, OS migration, and language localization support
  • GUI integration for seamless user-experience
  • System optimization and documentation

 

 

Security

 

In the first-ever Witekio – Pentest Limited webinar, we got straight to the very heart of the issue on everyone’s mind – IoT Ecosystem Security.

More specifically, how to identify and secure threats on a connected device.

With consumers demanding more and more connectivity and integration between devices, security threats are more likely.

Therefore, at the very least, you need to understand the basics of how to run risk analysis and outline common vulnerabilities for your device.

Luckily – we covered just this, and in case you need a recap, I’m going to break down the key moments you need to remember.

This webinar is vital for anyone looking to bring a connected device to market in 2023.

Witekio 2022 Highlights

Before we fully dive into 2023, we wanted to celebrate and showcase the highlights of our year, which were made possible in part thanks to you.

From webinars to newsletters, exhibit talks to podcasts, the Witekians have shared their knowledge about the embedded software hot topics on everyone’s minds.

We also celebrated our 20 year anniversary, exhibited at some of the biggest shows in the world, and most importantly – delivered for our clients.

Qt 6 – How to Successfully Migrate and Upgrade your Device

If you’re looking to use Qt 6 or need to upgrade your device user interface, this webinar is for you!

We’ll cover how you can successfully migrate to Qt 6 from your legacy Qt software, how to ensure you get the most from the software, as well as showcase what’s new and what’s coming for the latest release.
