This Theme Day features sessions on developing applications for IoT. If you have a story to tell about using Eclipse IoT projects, experience reports about building IoT solutions or new open source projects for IoT, then submit here.
"Digital Twin" is the new buzzword in IoT. "Digital Twins" basically are software representations of physical devices in an IoT platform. In times of growing complexity and diversity in the IoT platform landscape "Digital Twins" play an increasingly important role as they remove complexity for application developers when dealing with protocol adapters or device specific formats."
Having software update capabilities ensures a secure IoT by means that it gives IoT projects the chance to keep security related mechanisms up-to-date. From that moment on devices are at the forefront of IT security threats many embedded software developers never had to face.
From a device point of view, software updates differ hugely from domain to domain, from device to device, or even from use-case to use-case. From the backend, however, our experience has shown, that the process does not differ too much.
Deploying an end-to-end IoT solution require several technologies to be in place: applications on the edge, device connectivity services and backend applications need to collaborate to support a variety of use cases and consistently provide reliable, scalable, manageable and secure solutions.
Discover how Eclipse IoT projects Kura, Hono and Kapua can work together to provide a powerful and integrated set of services aimed to simplify the implementation and the deployment of complex IoT solutions.
Eclipse Hono offers horizontal scaling for cloud IoT messaging. You can find a lot of documentation about Hono architecture and learn how it is designed to achieve this scalability. Deployment of such a complex cloud software, on the other hand, is very dependent on the specific environment and use case. That is why there haven’t been too much talk around this topic so far.
