In embedded environments I'm not sure a lot of the OOD stuff makes sense.

Encapsulation - definitely as it hides the intricacies of the hardware, but be careful you don't introduce performance penalties by doing so.

Abstraction - goes along with encapsulation in this case with the same caveats.

Inheritance - depends on the application. Don't use it just because it's available. I have used Inheritance successfully, but going more than two or three levels deep simply invites inefficiencies and unreadable code. Consider that most unreadable code is because the control flow is at the wrong level and then consider that inheritance is a form of control flow.

Polymorphism - use it or don't use it as needed.

In other words, you don't have to use all of OOD if it doesn't make sense. Use what makes sense.
