    "HTML5" as "Buzzword" in late 2000s HTML was buzzword in

    late 2000s starting from Gmail (2004), Google Maps (2005), many desktop apps switch to Web apps from 2008, Web is treated as OS independent platform to support new platforms such as iOS and Android. "Plateau of Productivity" now after too much expectations and disappointment, now widely used properly in many industries buzzword: a word or phrase that becomes very popular for a period of time 6
  6. 7.

    HTML5 in Hype Cycle by Gartner (2012) https://www.gartner.co.jp/press/html/pr20120906-01.html 7 HTML5

    expectations for
 HTML5 became
 max around 2012 Big Data or IoT etc.
 follow HTML5 in 2012
  7. 8.

    Web (HTML5) ecosystem is... Most Popular Technologies all 1st ~

    3rd popular techs are web (JavaScript, HTML, CSS) Most Popular Frameworks all 1st ~ 3rd popular frameworks are web (Node.js, Angular, React) Wide Platform Support OS independent implementation with Web technologies Easy to work with Web services Free to Use No license fees depends on the device sales nor engineers Patent free (except some video codecs if you use it) Vendor independent No worry to stop support by the vendor (good for long-term) Rapid improvement by Google, Mozilla, MS, Apple etc Stack Over Flow Developer Survey Results 2018 https://insights.stackoverflow.com/survey/2018 8

    Web Standard Support (as of 2018.04) API numbers counted with

    Web IDL https://github.com/MicrosoftEdge/APICatalogData 12 Chrome and Firefox (Gecko) lead web standard implementations 14,194 10,225 7,537 8,706 11,764
  11. 13.

    Past Web Standardization and evolution (~2015) ~2015, whole basic techs

    are updated HTML5, CSS 2015, ECMAScript 2015, HTTP/2 ... Incrementally continue to improve them... HTML5.1, 5.2, 5.3 ..., CSS 2017, 2018 ..., HTTP/3 ...
 ECMAScript 2016, 2017, 2018 ... Incremental/rapid update of Platforms Windows 10, Unity, Browsers... HTML/CSS/JS... 13
  12. 14.

    Existing Web
 APIs Trend: Web API evolution 2013~ Extensible Web

    Manifest Focus on low level, primitive APIs fetch, stream, custom element (component) ... 2015~ Progressive Web Apps (PWA) No more Gap between Native (mobile) Apps install, background, o ine, cache management, app/content packaging, worklets, webauthn ... 14 Low Level APIs
 (Extensible Web) Padding missing features (PWA etc.) Higher Lower
  13. 15.

    Trend: Web Browser evolution Utilize more GPU and multi cores

    Servo/Quantum (rewrite engines with Rust-lang) WebGPU (WIP: Vulkan, Metal etc version of WebGL)... Flow Browser (WIP: new layout/rendering engine + SpiderMonkey) targeted for STB or similar platform Smaller footprint, Faster page load 2017: Ignition+Turbofan in V8 2019: Baseline Interpreter in SpiderMonkey 2019: v8 Lite for low memory / embedder 15 memory saving by v8 Lite
  14. 16.

    NEW: Web as System Runtime WebAssembly (WASM): "compile to the

    Web" binary format compiled from C/C++/Rust etc same code run on JS engines & standalone runtime similar perf as C/C++/Rust (faster than Java etc) WASI: POSIX like system interface for WASM building "secure by default" ecosystem Developed/hosted by ByteCode Alliance
 (Mozilla, Fastly, Intel, Red Hat and more?) 16
  15. 17.

    generic/speci c WASI Runtime Wasmtime (generic) standalone WebAssembly runtime Lucet

    (by Fastly, CDNs and edge compute) focused on low latency, high concurrency ~50μs with few KB overhead to instantiate
 (5ms with tens of MB memory required for V8) AOT compilation from Wasm to Native code WebAssembly Micro Runtime (WAMR) focused on limited resources (embedded devices) require 2MB by default, can run on 256KB etc 17
  16. 19.

    Where Browser Engine can be used? Just example device types...

    19 Windows 10 Windows 10 IoT Consumer Prototype MCU MPU SoC Android & AOSP Realtime OS No OS Linux Qt Browser (main target) Arduino, RasPi etc. Industry iOS CPU+GPU Makers mainly Devices with rich HMI Win10 mobile macOS automotive ATM medical kiosk FA HEMS PC intercom signage sensor copy mobile Robot projector home appliance Nest AR echo TV STB PLC
  17. 20.

    Web use cases for embedded devices Printers (Richo etc) touch

    panels use HTML5 remotely manage custom display for each divisions of the company hardware control part of the main body also implemented with Web tech (Node.js) and work with browser of touch panel HMI Door Phone (Aiphone etc) Including Web Browser Support 3rd party app with Web Digital Signage Show HTML contents to make content management easy TVs (Almost smart TVs) Menu implemented with HTML support 3rd party apps with Web Apps (Japan or Euro region speci c apps such as Hybridcast and Maker speci c apps for Panasonic (Ajax App)) 20
  18. 21.

    HTML5 as GUI Framework develop Apps with HTML5 use as

    GUI Framework run on Gecko Engine use with Middle ware when needed to communication native component, use web socket (IP) connection to localhost or API enhancement of Gecko engine no app management (install etc) feature (yet) https://www.renesas.com/ja-jp/products/rzg-linux-platform/linux-package.html 21
  19. 22.

    HTML5 for Rich User Interface Rich design capabilities including i18n

    support or publishing level design Can be fast (but also can be slow) GPU accelerated animations/rendering use GPUs with WebGL (Web version of OpenGL) use WebAssembly for faster processing Many OSS framework/theme for UI design 22
  20. 23.

    Web support complex layouts (publishing) 2017 IDPF join W3C Digital

    Publishing format (ePub) now standardized in W3C 2019 writing mode level 3 become REC vertical text for Japanese, Mongolian etc RTL (right to left) for Arabic Hebrew, Persian etc. Japanese books can now made with CSS CSS Secrets by O'Reilly Japan & Vivliostyle http://www.oreilly.co.jp/books/9784873117669/ https://www.w3.org/2016/05/digpub.html.ja 23

    Accessing Native libraries/devices (Gecko) 27 Browser Engine JavaScript Engine Graphics

    Backend Necko / Network Cache NSS OpenGL, D2D ... Skia GFX / Layout Thebe Azure Web Standard APIs Browser User Interface NPAPI
 Plug-ins Plug-in container NPAPI interpreter XPCOM Native Libraries js-ctypes Graphics Driver Device Drivers JIT Compilers Node.js Web Applications Hardwares Server & Apps Node
 modules HTML CSS JavaScript Custom Web APIs 3. support web protocol by Native libraries 5. add custom Web APIs 4. use Plug-in 1. via local server Cairo Web Extension APIs 2. native messaging API
  22. 28.

    Accessing Native libraries/devices from Web 1. via local (web socket

    or http) server Pros: easiest to implement Cons: network layer and local server overhead 2. Native Messaging API Pros: using standard extension API implemented in Browsers Cons: need communicate via extension' background js context 3. support Web protocol by Native side Pros: no local server overhead Cons: network layer overhead 4. Plug-ins Pros: better perf Cons: NPAPI is now deprecated 5. custom Web APIs Pros: better perf, exibility Cons: need to hack browser engine 28

    Example: WebGPIO/I2C by community Easy-to-Prototype environment Single JavaScript program can

    control both graphical interface and hardwares released for Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano so far access GPIO/I2C devices from Web apps poly ll.js provides WebGPIO/I2C APIs proposed in W3C browser and Robotics community group Web apps will easily access hardware devices community provides 30+ I2C device drivers (js library to init and control devices) implemented with WebI2C API: https://github.com/chirimen-oh/chirimen-drivers 29 Node Server Web Applications using WebGPIO/I2C apis GPIO/I2C Hardwares poly ll.js GPIO/I2C backend srv web socket
  24. 30.

    WebI2C API usage (via browser) (async function() { var i2cAccess

    = await navigator.requestI2CAccess(); var port = i2cAccess.ports.get(1); var sht = new SHT30(port); await sht.init(); for (;;) { var data = await sht.readData(); document.getElementById("temp").innerHTML = data.temperature.toFixed(2) + "degree"; document.getElementById("humidity").innerHTML = data.humidity.toFixed(2) + "%"; await sleep(200); } })(); 30
  25. 31.

    WebI2C API usage (via node) const { requestI2CAccess } =

    require("node-web-i2c"); const VL53L0X = require("@chirimen/vl53l0x"); (async function main() { const i2cAccess = await requestI2CAccess(); const port = i2cAccess.ports.get(1); const vl = new VL53L0X(port, 0x29); await vl.init(); // for Long Range Mode (<2m) : await vl.init(true); for (;;) { const distance = await vl.getRange(); console.log(`${distance} [mm]`); await sleep(500); } })() 31

    Building Browser engines on Yocto OSSystems/meta-browser includes recipes of Chromium/Firefox

    browser! Pain Points: not enough maintained Many troubles to build for your Yocto... GPU acceleration or JIT compiler etc will be disabled for many embedded SoCs (by default) Firefox depends on newer meta-rust/meta-clang and cannot build with old Yocto ... etc... Gecko Embedded project is working for them https://github.com/webdino/gecko-embedded 33
  27. 34.

    Gecko on RZ/G RZ/G Linux Platform support HTML5 2 HMI

    platform = Qt / HTML5 HMI development with most popular Web tech HMI platform without license fees Gecko as VLP (Veri ed Linux Package) port Gecko, browser engine of Firefox which lead web tech improvement with Chrome Gecko support enable GPU accelerated Web-based HMI, App development https://www.renesas.com/ja-jp/products/rzg-linux-platform/linux-package.html 34
  28. 35.

    HTML5 Acceleration and SoC speci c porting Browser do JavaScript

    (main thread), Style and Layout calculation, Painting and Composting between each frame rendering If some of these are too heavy, cannot keep 60 (or 30) fps (= looks slow) SoC speci c porting needed to accelerate each steps for example, JIT engine(s) which use assembly code are needed to accelerate JavaScript (or about 10 times slower with interpreter execution) RZ/G use GPU for Paint (Canvas, Video) and Composite steps too! RZ/G support new Style engine "Stylo" and Layout engine "WebRender" details: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/performance/rendering/ 35
  29. 36.

    Animation perf with/without GPU GPU Accelerated Compositor disabled vs enabled

    Do you need Browser? or Browser Engine? meta-browser will build

    "Browser" Full browser client app (same as desktop PCs) No o cial/standard way to use Gecko for embedding yet (Mozilla is developing GeckoView for Android but not for Linux yet) Embedded Linux need simple HTML viewer, not full-featured Browser! 37
  31. 38.

    Firefox and Gecko Firefox: browser as a whole Firefox is

    Branding name for users we port Firefox (as non brand browser) to RZ/G but UI part is not veri ed nor supported Gecko: Browser Engine part core program to load web apps We sometimes call Layout Engine part as Gecko 38 Devtools Server Browser Engine,
 Layout Engine JavaScript Engine Network, Security Rich & Heavy Full Browser UI Graphics APIs Devtools Client Linux BSP
 (HAL, Graphics backend etc...) Gecko Firefox telemetry, sync client ... etc.
  32. 39.

    WebViewer (simple HTML loader recipe) WebViewer slim wrapper to load

    HTML remove unnecessary modules no more access to Mozilla/ Google servers automatically smaller footprint (90~120MB smaller than Firefox on RZ/G) lower CPU usage (fewer background tasks in browser) fork of meta-browser includes WebViewer recipes etc https://github.com/webdino/meta-browser/ 39 Devtools Server Browser Engine,
 Layout Engine JavaScript Engine Network, Security Slim wrapper for
 Web content Graphics APIs Linux BSP
