System-level and BSPs
A success of any product or solution is determined by the quality of its software both at application and system level. As the system level software directly interacts with underlying hardware and can leverage its specifics efficiently, it is very important to focus on optimising this software and make it work in any situation.
Almost any novel customised hardware platform requires developing, porting or fine tuning it system software. We at RTSoft GmbH have a deep knowledge and expertise in system-level software. Our competences span from expertise in almost all major instruction set architectures to various flavours of operating systems, peripherals and low-level protocols.

One of our customers, a CCTV system integration company, requested us to develop a system to count people and measure people flow in underground metro. The purpose of the system is to assist platform load and passenger queues. The video surveillance system had been already deployed there and RTSoft should propose a hardware and software add-on by a very competitive price.
RTSoft helps customers to build AI + IoT applications through integration of computer vision, data analysis and augmented reality. Our experience in embedded platforms (Intel Movidius, Nvidia Jetson, Google Coral) and dedicated ML frameworks (Openvino, TensorRT, TFLite) made it possible to fulfill this project.
The solution should allow an automatic rollback in case of update failures such as connectivity problem or unexpected power loss, implement versioning and secure delivery mechanisms, and be customizable for future integrations.
Additionally, the solution should include a cloud back-end service for device and software repository, content delivery and rollout management.
The target devices’s characteristics are:
- SoC: Mediatek MT7688
- Flash memory: 64MB
- Operating system: Linux (OpenWRT)
The solution was presented at the CES 2018 Show in Las Vegas.
G+D Currency Technology has assigned RTSoft to code the agent for automated remote software updates and data exchange for BPS C2 banknote processing systems with central dashboards.
