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.

Hardware for prototypes

This section overviews the available variety of hardware that can be used for prototyping, and gives some tips on choosing the hardware and a data exchange protocol to ensure communication between the components of a prototype.

Variety and cost

One can find a variety of open source hardware for prototyping—Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, LinkIt, BeagleBone, and Tessel. Most of them are really cheap; you can buy an Orange Pi for just $33. The price usually depends on how powerful the board is and what interfaces it supports.

In addition to a board, it is possible to purchase a starter kit that usually costs about $70. It includes a few sensors, a small display, lamps, cables, and a breadboard...
