Using a real operating system to simplify programming with the Arduino IDE. Is this possible and how? Let’s have a closer look!
Operating systems were invented to simplify our lives. But, because they need a lot of resources, they only run on reasonable computers like the Raspberry Pi or a PC. Right? Wrong. Nowadays, we also get operating systems running on our small MCUs. Particularly interesting in this respect is the ESP32 because it has enough power and memory to accommodate such an additional burden. And the best: It already runs a version of FreeRTOS with all our Arduino sketches, and it is easier than you think. Is this useful?
