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 Edge Development

This chapter describes the process of prototyping a device for beginners. We provide detailed instructions on how to assemble four different prototypes, and how to build and run simple IoT apps for the prototypes, together with sample source code. Finally, we explore the Predix services that can be used to store, analyze, and merge the sensor data from the prototypes.

In this chapter, you will learn about the following topics:

  • Choosing hardware for prototyping
  • The Open Systems Interconnection model and its layers
  • Application-layer protocols—HTTP and WebSocket
  • Industrial M2M protocols—Modbus and OPC UA
  • Assembling a device for a prototype
  • Preparing an SD card for a prototype
  • Building and running simple IoT apps using the HTTP, WebSocket, Modbus, and OPC UA protocols
  • Data management services in Predix
