Industrial Internet Application Development

By: Alena Traukina, Jayant Thomas, Prashant Tyagi, Veera Kishore Reddipalli

Overview of this book

The Industrial Internet refers to the integration of complex physical machines with networked sensors and software. The growth in the number of sensors used in industrial machinery has led to an exponential increase in data being captured for predictive analytics. Industrial Internet Application Development is a practical guide for developers who want to create applications that leverage the full capabilities of IIoT. You will get started by learning how to develop your first IIoT application and understanding its deployment and security. Once you’re familiar with what IIoT is, you will move on to exploring Edge Development along with the analytics aspect of the IIoT stack. In later chapters, you’ll get to grips with the deployment of IIoT applications on the Predix platform. As you cover these concepts, you’ll be able to identify key elements of the development framework and understand their importance while considering architecture and design for IIoT applications. By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to deploy IIoT applications on the Predix platform and incorporate best practices for developing fault-tolerant and reliable IIoT systems.

IIoT applications – an introduction

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is designed to harness the power of IIoT and cloud in health care, manufacturing, and industrial environments to monitor performance, optimize operations, and solve problems remotely, all using IIoT applications. The focus of IIoT applications is on connecting equipment such as turbines, jet engines, and locomotives, to the cloud and to each other, in meaningful ways. As such, IIoT application design has many similarities with typical IoT application design in addressing concerns such as edge connectivity, massive data, high-speed data ingestion, and security. But there are some unique challenges, such as knowledge of asset models, industrial analytics, and industrial operations, when you create applications for industrial customers.
