The IoT Device Simulator is a solution that that enables customers to create and simulate hundreds of virtual connected devices, without having to configure and manage physical devices, or develop time-consuming scripts. The solution also includes a pre-built automotive module that you can use to simulate vehicle telemetry data using pre-defined device types. The automotive module uses a power train simulation model to generate simulated vehicle telemetry data.

The solution deploys a device simulator API, which leverages Amazon API Gateway to invoke the solution’s microservices (AWS Lambda functions). These microservices provide the business logic to perform operations on virtual devices and device types, record simulation metrics, and perform administration tasks. The solution also deploys Amazon ECS containers provisioned by AWS Fargate that contain a simulation engine for running simulations. For pricing details, see the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution. To learn more about the IoT Device Simulator, see the solution webpage.

The AWS Solutions team communicates AWS architectural best practices and develops standardized, automated solutions for the platform. Our offerings currently live on the AWS Answers webpage, where customers can browse common questions by category to find answers in the form of succinct Solution Briefs or comprehensive Solutions, which are AWS-vetted, automated, turnkey reference implementations that address specific business needs.
