In the software industry, the Agile movement has produced much discussion since its inception at the 2001 meeting in Snowbird, Utah. Although Agile practices have been applied quite widely in various software development environments, the field of embedded systems has seen relatively few Agile projects. Because interest in Agile is growing in the embedded world, this paper reviews Agile practices from the perspective of embedded systems development. Some characteristics of embedded system development may influence the applicability of Agile practices to this subfield.
