During Google I/O 2015 later this week, the Silicon Valley company is expected to unveil Brillo, its Android-inspired OS designed for the Internet of Things (IoT). Connected devices typically have a lower amount of RAM, and should be able to operate on low-power, which are two considerations Google is addressing with Brillo.

Google has owned Nest Labs, a company known for smart thermostats, since early 2014 - and could provide a good test opportunity for any IoT-based operating systems.

 

There is a growing trend of software and hardware companies preparing their own IoT offerings, as analysts believe the sector will become more disruptive. Google, Apple, Microsoft, and other companies will be able to create unique software to help connected devices collected data and communicate with one another - and must be prepared for the expected increase in IoT-centric purchases.
