Samsung does more than just phones or TVs, and the company is really keen on entering the IoT market while it’s still young. The Artik embedded platform is the perfect way of doing this and from the looks of it, these solutions are going to run Ubuntu.
We’ve heard a lot about IoT lately, and many of you might be wondering what this is all about. IoT means Internet of Things, and it’s actually a concept that brings together all the devices that have various uses but also connect to the internet. All of these devices need some hardware ready for IoT and Samsung is just one of the companies that want to provide the hardware.
The hardware is not enough, and Snappy Ubuntu Core is the perfect solution. This is a modular version of Ubuntu that uses snappy packages, which provides increased security, rollout functionality, and much more.
