Most embedded devices today require an update mechanism to keep them safe and to provide new functionality. However, there are a lot of different update concepts with different advantages and disadvantages. In this talk we will look at some common update concepts, how they are used and how fail-safe they are. In a demo session, we will use an update mechanism using containers with Torizon and see how we can control them from a Qt application.
In this talk we will have a look at some update concepts and compare the advantages and disadvantages of this mechanisms.
The talk will mainly show the following update concepts:
* Partition swap with swupdate
* Recovery Image
* Container/Hypervisor based approach with Torizon
We will have an in-depth look at Torizon and show how it can be integrated into a Qt application.
