For example, in September 2018, the Windows 10 ROS1 version (Robot version) is introduced again in the Windows 10 system;
Another example is February 2019, released Windows Server Iot 2019.
According to (public number 🙂 Understanding, the interpretation of David Lemson, which is DAVID Lemson, Director, Microsoft Windows IoT and Network Project Management, “Device Manufacturers can build server-level IoT edge devices by using Windows Server Iot 2019,” High-capacity storage and computing schemes and seamlessly expand between the cloud and the edges. “
Briefly, the Internet will continue to expand from the clouds; for the robot, emphasize its Windows 10 ROS1 version and function again. Specific functions, David Lemson is explained below:
Windows Azure Internet of Things. Developers can easily bring the cloud workload to the edge to make full use of the Windows 10 Internet of Things platform.

Microsoft Azure IoT device proxy allows the operator to remotely configure, monitor, and manage their devices on the Azure dashboard.
Windows operating system robot operating system. Introducing ROS into Windows IoT (ie Windows 10 ROS1) to achieve rich AI and edge AI features, including hardware accelerated Windows machine learning, computer vision, Azure cognitive services, and turnkey connections to Azure Internet Cloud service.
