How to get started with the new AWS IoT Core Device Location service

Introduction The new AWS IoT Core Device Location feature allows Internet of Things (IoT) devices to retrieve and report their current location without relying on Global Positioning System (GPS) hardware. Devices and clients connected to AWS IoT Core can now use cloud-assisted Global Navigation Satellite System(GNSS), WiFi scan, cellular triangulation, and reverse IP lookup techniques […]

Introducing new MQTTv5 features for AWS IoT Core to help build flexible architecture patterns

Introduction We are excited to announce that AWS IoT Core now supports MQTTv5 features that help enhance communications of large-scale device deployments and innovate device messaging patterns. Customers who already have MQTTv3.1.1 deployments can make use of the new MQTTv5 features as AWS IoT Core provides seamless integration between both versions and supports heterogeneous deployments […]

Reduce building maintenance costs with AWS IoT TwinMaker Knowledge Graph

Introduction The shift from in office work to hybrid and fully remote work is causing revenue and valuation pressure on commercial building owners. As a result, building managers are exploring ways to optimize their expenses by reducing maintenance costs while still providing a premier tenant experience. Building managers are responsible for maintenance and providing a […]

Importing AWS IoT Device Defender audit and detect findings into Security Hub

Introduction In this post, you’ll learn how the integration of IoT security findings into AWS Security Hub works, and you can download AWS CloudFormation templates to implement the solution. After you deploy the solution, every AWS IoT Device Defender audit and detect finding will be recorded as a Security Hub finding. The findings within Security […]

Developing a Remote Job Monitoring Application at the edge using AWS IoT Greengrass (part 1)

Introduction Many modern industrial operations require extensive monitoring and real-time decision making for efficiency and safety reasons. To reduce the unexpected network interruption and delay in IoT data processing, edge computing becomes a desirable option for real-time IoT data processing and monitoring. Edge computing is a system of micro computing/storage devices that are installed at […]

This UI application at the edge contains multiple custom AWS IoT Greengrass V2 components to achieve flexible IoT data […]

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 […]

Learn how to secure your IIoT solutions with AWS IIoT security workshop

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 […]

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 […]

Simplify multi-account device provisioning and certificate authority registration when using AWS IoT Core

Customers often manage multiple AWS accounts to separate their development, staging, and production environments. When deploying IoT workloads on AWS IoT Core, customers usually use unique X.509 certificates for identifying devices and certificate authorities (CAs) for validating the signature of device certificates during provisioning. In this blog, we will demonstrate how to use the newly […]
