At A Glance: Embedded Linux
There are many different computer systems that people and businesses interact with daily. Beyond the general-use computer desktops, laptops, and mobile devices that are ubiquitous to our daily lives, there are also in-car navigation systems, consumer electronics, traffic lights, machine control systems, and much more. These specialized systems are called embedded systems, and the accurate control of these products can be an integral aspect of how a company manages its products, services, or businesses. The most common operating system for embedded systems of moderate to high complexity is Linux, and through the Linux Kernel, an embedded Linux specialist can modify and operate a wide variety of embedded systems.
Embedded Linux specialists are highly skilled computer programmers with an in-depth knowledge of Linux and its Linux Kernel operating software. A specialist can be utilized by your company to create or implement software on embedded systems, which can range from mobile touchscreens to medical instruments. If you are already interacting with embedded systems that run on Linux and need to diagnose or modify one of those systems, a specialist on Upwork can be available to help. An embedded Linux specialist can train you in how to implement Linux into your computer systems or help you make connections to the resources your project needs. Hiring a freelance embedded Linux specialist is a cost-effective way for you to manage and organize any embedded Linux project in a highly flexible and time-sensitive way.
