Strengthening Operational Insights for Industrial Assets with AWS IoT AIML Solution (part 1)

Customers that manage and maintain industrial assets strive to keep them functioning as efficiently as possible, which they can do by monitoring and analyzing the health of their assets. Plant operators measure efficiency with key performance indicators (KPIs) like overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) or mean time before failure (MTBF) and act to improve these metrics […]

How to implement zero trust IoT solutions with AWS IoT

Introduction Zero trust is often misunderstood. It’s not a product but a security model and associated set of architectural principles and patterns. One of the main challenges customers face is determining how zero-trust principles can be applied to Internet of Things (IoT) and how to get started with incorporating zero trust with Amazon Web Services […]

Find runtime errors in AWS IoT Events detector models using type checking

Customers use AWS IoT Events detector models to describe equipment states and the events that affect these states.
