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.

Complexity of an IIoT system

An IIoT system is a significantly complex ecosystem of diverse components that is in a state of continuous change, never static, and always evolving with various parts of the ecosystem prone to different types of stress and failures. A node on the edge will be added or removed every day, cloud connectivity will be lost, or new builds on the cloud will be deployed multiple times per day. In addition, old APIs could be swapped for newer and better ones at an astounding pace. Making the system reliable and fault-tolerant is paramount to the successful usage of the application. Before we dive into discussing the various aspects of this chapter, let's look at a typical architecture of the IIoT system for reference. A typical IIoT system consists of cloud services such as APIs, runtimes, a data store, messaging services, and edge gateways deployed on...
