Building an EV Battery Monitoring solution with AWS IoT FleetWise (Part 1/2)

Introduction Automakers, fleet operators, and automotive suppliers are recognizing the potential of vehicle data to transform their business models and optimize their operations. However, implementing data-driven use cases is often challenging. Proprietary vehicle data formats, high costs of data ingestion and implementation complexity can slow down innovation. AWS IoT FleetWise is a service that makes […]

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 […]

How Trend Micro improved their velocity and agility using AWS IoT Core Device Advisor

Introduction Developing an IoT device or client can be a significant undertaking. Development efforts, ranging from design, prototyping, testing, quality assurance and more, can take months, if not years. Improving the development velocity and agility is obviously attractive for product cost and time-to-market. However, any acceleration should not compromise on quality, and deliver a device […]

How to develop distributed IoT applications using the AWS IoT Greengrass PubSub SDK

Introduction IoT applications are synonymous with the Publish / Subscribe (PubSub) model where distributed services communicate via event triggered messages. The PubSub model offers flexibility in design and is well suited to event-driven distributed IoT systems. However, this flexibility puts many design decisions in the hands of the developer that creates dependencies across systems, services […]

Planning a Seamless Migration to AWS IoT Core

Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem has evolved rapidly over the last several years with an explosion of connected devices and data. This has also resulted in a shift for some customers as they look to evolve and adapt their solutions to match their business needs, or simply transition away from less scalable and […]

Introduction Industrial digital transformation is driving changes to the Operational Technology (OT) landscape, making it more connected to the internet and IT systems and solutions. With OT/IT convergence, OT environments are leveraging more IT solutions to improve productivity and efficiency of production operations. Industrial customers can use AWS edge and cloud services to securely access […]

Trigger AWS IoT Greengrass component deployments from AWS CodeCommit

As computing power extends into Internet of Thing (IoT) devices, software becomes more and more crucial to making decisions, processing data, and providing insight to end users at the device. Devices are the backbone of many businesses and applications. Regardless of the use case, customers benefit from quick, widespread deployment of software updates and improvements […]

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 […]

Build resilient IoT device applications that remain active using the AWS IoT Device SDKs

Introduction In this blog post, we provide recommendations on how you can build resilient Internet of Things (IoT) device applications using AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Device SDKs, and MQTT protocol. These recommendations cover: managing your MQTT client, publishing and reception of messages, initiating the device application process, setting up the network connection, performing software […]
