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.

Developing Your First Application for IIoT

In this chapter, you will learn about the S95 standard ( and how it applies to the exchange of asset data. We also provide an overview of databases to store asset data and a comparison of time series storage. Then, we demonstrate how to build a Node.js application that simulates the reading of time series data from sensors and how to enable analytics and visualizations of the data reads. Finally, we provide instructions on configuring Grafana alerts with visualizations, and email and Slack notifications about database values exceeding limits.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • S95 standard and exchange of asset data according to the S95 standard
  • Choosing a database management system to store asset data
  • Comparison of the most common time series storage
  • Using InfluxDB as a time series storage
  • Building...
