Implementing time-critical cloud-to-device IoT message patterns on AWS IoT Core

Introduction Widely adopted Internet of Things (IoT) communication standards for device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device are typically asynchronous, enabling event-driven patterns to ensure resilience, cost savings, and failure tolerance. However, customers across industries need to enable synchronous communication patterns to ensure time-critical logic in their edge devices. Automotive manufacturers, for example, want their connected vehicles to be […]

Connected vehicles telemetry – Processing Protobuf messages with AWS IoT Core

Introduction In connect vehicles applications, telemetry data is usually very extensive, containing structure and unstructured data. To send data over to the Cloud you can use Protocol Buffers (Protobuf – binary format). Protobuf provides the application with an efficient yet well structured compressing mechanism. The built-in protocol documentation makes data serialization and deserialization more manageable […]
