Not all embedded systems require or even warrant operating systems.

I am reminded of a Dilbert in which Dilbert is in a conference room with
the marketing guy. Dilbert asks the marketing guy to provide a rough
idea of the product and its requirements. The marketing guy says no,
that he'd rather Dilbert tell him everything of which Dilbert is capable
and that he'll choose some of them.

OK. What would you like these sensors to sense? In what way would you like
the system to use to the data it gathers from these sensors? Will this
data or any other data need to be communicated to other systems? Are there
any other outputs the system needs to provide?
