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.

Implementing IIoT Applications with Predix

In this chapter, you will learn in more detail about the components and capabilities of the Asset, Time Series, and Analytics Framework services from GE's Predix catalog. In particular, we will demonstrate how to create instances of the services, bind them with your apps, and configure client authentications. You will also learn how to use various HTTP requests in Postman to query and manage assets, and how to build and deploy apps to read and analyze time series data. Furthermore, we will provide detailed instructions on how to enable advanced visualization with components of GE's Predix UI Framework.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Using the Asset service for asset modeling
  • Creating an instance of the Asset service and binding it to your app
  • Configuring client authentications for managing assets via the Asset service...
