Google may join the group of companies that offer their own operating system for internet of things - the world of connected everyday objects. The Information reports that Google has developed software -- internally called "Brillo" -- that can run on low-power devices and give them the ability to communicate with other connected devices nearby. The new OS could debut under an Android name next week, at Google's I/O conference.
The software is reported to be designed for devices that have as little as 32MBs or 64MBs of RAM, meaning that those devices should be simple and low-powered.
A lot of companies are diving into iOT device and their software. Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 10 IoT Core that's meant to run on ATMs, ultrasound machines, and wearables.
