The worldwide market of terminal operating systems is very heterogeneous. It is characterized by many providers each of them offering more than one different product. The range of functions of each product is quite diverse depending on the scope and purpose of the product. The market survey is supposed to enable terminal operators to select the best product for their terminal. Therefore public information as well as information derived from a survey questionnaire has been evaluated using a scheme that is independent of the respective terminal type. The third issue of this study provides an updated list of companies providing TOS systems including their products and features as well as new insights regarding future developments of software support for terminal operation.
