I am looking for a development project of RIOT for my Advanced Operating Systems course.
Can you suggest me few domains to work. I found currently it is not supported on Intel Galileo Board. Is it a good area to start with
Can you suggest me few domains to work. I found currently it is not
supported on Intel Galileo Board. Is it a good area to start with
imho instead of supporting yet another board it might be more interesting
to pick one of the project ideas listed in
However, please be aware that this list is slightly outdated and projects
differ in effort. In any case, some RIOT maintainers have probably a
better understanding which would be beneficial for the project.
improving x86 support in RIOT is a not such a bad idea, in my opinion.
If you are interested in this however, instead of the Galileo board, I would suggest working on support for Arduino 101 .
The first step would be to provide initial support i.e. to have the bare minimum for the RIOT shell to work, which means have context switching, timer, UART.
FYI, there is support for x86 through the QEMU support  but this is likely outdated and would have to be overhauled to be harmonized somewhat with current ARM, AVR, and MSP430 support.
@Kijewski care to comment on that latest statement?
