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.

This chapter provided an overview of the Asset, Time Series, and Analytics Framework services from GE's Predix catalog. We demonstrated how to create instances of the services, bind them to your apps, and configure client authentications. Then, we showed how you could create various HTTP requests in Postman to query and manage assets. This chapter also contained instructions on building and deploying apps to read and analyze time series data. In addition, we outlined how to enable advanced visualization with the components of GE's Predix UI Framework.

The next chapter will focus on the best practices for IIoT applications. In particular, we will look into things to consider when choosing a language to build your microservices. Furthermore, we will discuss how to enable the discovery of microservices using Hystrix, Zookeeper, and so on, and how to integrate IoT...
