Digital Twins on AWS: Driving Value with L4 Living Digital Twins

Introduction In working with customers, we often hear of a desired Digital Twin use case to drive actionable insights through what-if scenario analysis. These use cases typically include operations efficiency management, fleet management, failure predictions, and maintenance planning, to name a few. To help customers navigate this space, we developed a concise definition and four-level […]

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 […]

Managing Organizational Transformation for Successful OT/IT Convergence

Introduction Industrial organizations are facing a new challenge as they try to merge the traditional physical world (Operational Technology or OT) and the digital world (Information Technology or IT). In our experience, companies who prioritize organizational change management when implementing digital solutions get better results from their investments. This is even more true when building […]

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 […]

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 […]

Digital Twins on AWS: Understanding “state” with L2 Informative Digital Twins

In our prior blog, we discussed a definition and framework for Digital Twins consistent with how our customers are using Digital Twins in their applications. We defined Digital Twin as “a living digital representation of an individual physical system that is dynamically updated with data to mimic the true structure, state, and behavior of the […]

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 […]

Increase military readiness with AWS IoT for Defense and National Security

In this post we discuss how AWS IoT for Defense and National Security (IoT4D) increases readiness by driving operational excellence for manufacturing and supply chains, improving sustainability for buildings and bases, improving equipment maintenance and uptime, and providing situational awareness at the tactical edge. IoT workloads securely collect, aggregate, and store data from fleets of […]

Generating insights from vehicle data with AWS IoT FleetWise: Introduction

Generating insights from vehicle data with AWS IoT FleetWise: Introduction

Automakers, fleet operators, and automotive suppliers are digitalizing their products and services, and vehicle data is fueling this digitalization in several ways. First, access to vehicle data allows evolutionary improvement of existing business processes. One example of this is faster detection of quality-related issues and analysis of their root causes. Second, access to vehicle data […]

Implement security monitoring across OT, IIoT and cloud with AWS Security Hub

Introduction Industrial digital transformation can increase competitiveness and optimize processes and profitability through the use of big data, IoT, machine-to-machine communication, and machine learning. Continuous digitalization and progressive interconnectivity of the production environment is important to capturing value from industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions. While this new and expanding “physical meets digital” connectivity enables great rewards, […]
