Fledgling software developer OOVM aims to launch its Resilient software in January next year

Fledgling Aarhus based software developer OOVM is on its way towards launching a product which can fix faults in equipment with built-in microprocessors, such as washing machines, cameras, mobile phones, hi-fi equipment and electronic toys. OOVM stands for Object Oriented Vurtual Machine, and its forthcoming product Resilient is a software platform that can oversee the software that drives the processors – known as embedded systems.

 

The benefit for both manufacturers and customers is that rather than having to recall or receive back products whose software fails, the problem can instead be found and rectified or the system software updated, without the end user needing to return it. Producers typically keep the amount of spare memory down to an absolute minimum, so Resilient has been designed to be able to run on as little as 128 kbytes of operating space.

 

OOVM will be targeting Resilient initially at producers of set-top boxes, stereos, cameras and electronic toys, and the product is expected to be launched in January next year. Meanwhile the company is surviving on venture capital provided by Incuba Venture. The news is reported by Computerworld.
