Why BeST uses OpenSource and Zephyr RTOS

Remote Presentation by Oliver Völckers at Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, India, 09.09.2023. The event was supported by Canonical, sponsor of the Linux distribution Ubuntu.


BeST Berliner Sensortechnik GmbH, based in Berlin, Germany, has successfully utilized Zephyr RTOS along with open-source software components for the past three years. In this presentation, Oliver Völckers will provide valuable insights into their journey of designing and implementing a pump monitoring system employed by the German railway operator, Deutsche Bahn.

The presentation will highlight the substantial advantages offered by Open Source Software and Zephyr RTOS when compared to vendor-exclusive SDKs. Additionally, Oliver will delve into key design choices made in both hardware and firmware throughout the system's development. He will also emphasize the project's accelerated progress and enhanced support resulting from their transparent sharing of experiences and insights.
