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 art of building a fault-tolerant IIoT device and edge gateway

We will switch gears from the cloud tier and focus on Tier 1 and Tier 2, that is, the device and the gateway and how we can build reliability into these key components of the IIoT architecture.

Designing for reliability at the sensors and devices

The main pain point for the device is the ability to communicate reliably to the gateway or to the cloud and send the sensor data in a secure way. The reliability of communications can be attributed to the performance of a few critical components: a radio transceiver and communications microcontroller as part of the device. Wireless connectivity technologies utilized by consumer devices do not always satisfy the greater...
