The state of Real Time Operating Systems in Rust.
We are not RTOS, yet.
There are only a handful of RTOS' written in rust, and only one of them compiles on stable.
The future is bright for RTOS' in rust, the language has many features that benefit RTOS development:
- Procedural macros allow RTIC to guarantee deadlock-free execution at compile time.
no_stdexecutors allow embassy and drone to provide cooperative scheduling with
constfunctions allow R3 to configure the RTOS as much as possible at compile time
Many of these are not true RTOS':
- Some are not real-time
- Some are more accurately described as execution frameworks instead of operating systems
