Converting industrial protocols with AWS IoT Greengrass

Gaining access to sensor data or telemetry of industrial machines is a key requirement for implementing high-value use cases around smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0. For instance, predictive maintenance or automated quality control is not possible without having such data at a high temporal resolution. Given the heterogeneous environment of modern industrial production lines with […]
