Tizen is an open-source, standards-based software platform that supports multiple device categories including smart TVs, wearable devices, and various home appliances.

Samsung Research works on optimizing Tizen for IoT environments with the aim of facilitating the development and maintenance of various intelligent devices, as well as IoT applications and services. Tizen is continuously improving Linux-based device platform architecture with core modules specifically designed for Tizen IoT. We design and develop intelligent services and frameworks/APIs coupled with the cloud. In addition, we establish web solutions by enhancing the latest web technology and web engine optimization.

We are devoted to enhancing Tizen’s ecosystem by providing convenient development tools and operational environments. We have included the Microsoft .NET Core to enable the community of application developers to develop their applications using C#, in addition to the traditional Web App (HTML/JS/CSS) and Native App (C Language). Furthermore, cross-platform application development is supported through the Xamarin environment.

With the emergence of IoT devices based on new form factors, we also work to develop technologies that are not only compatible with existing services, such as voice services, but can also reliably and flexibly respond to the enhanced demands of such emerging platforms.

To strengthen as a service platform, also provide multi-device experience between Samsung devices, common clients and SDKs for our services and update client/server that can be used in Samsung Tizen products are being developed.
