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.

The anatomy of our first IIoT application

We will design our first IIoT application end-to-end architecture using a very lightweight Edge Gateway that checks for any deviation in the temperature data using basic threshold analytics. When the threshold is breached, an alert is sent to the alert service in the cloud for storage and further processing of the alerts:

High level end-to-end architecture of the sample IIoT application with an Edge Gateway which has a basic analytic which sends alerts to the cloud

We will use a node server to design the analytics and use WebSocket as the cloud connectivity. We will connect to the cloud application using Spring Boot with PostgreSQL as the data store. Analytics will be a very simple descriptive analytics deployed in the Edge Gateway that is threshold-based which generates the alerts in the Cloud. The architecture of the sample application...
