This is mostly known as an Open Source operating system for networked embedded systems
Contiki is engineered in such a way that it can connect tiny low-power, low-cost microcontrollers to the World Wide Web, making it the operating system for the Internet of Things.
With an active community and a fast, rapid development cycle, Contiki features support for a wide range of low-power wireless devices, full support for IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, as well as support for the 6lowpan, CoAP, and RPL low-power wireless standards.
Among other highlights, we can mention memory allocation, full IP networking, power awareness, sleepy routers, dynamic module loading, the Cooja Network Simulator, protothreads, coffee flash filesystem, the Contiki shell, the Rime stack, regression tests, low memory footprint, and much more.
