Creating Object Recognition with Espressif ESP32

By using low-cost embedded devices like the Espressif ESP32 family, and the breadth of AWS services, you can create an advanced object recognition system. ESP32 microcontroller is a highly integrated solution for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth IoT applications, with around 20 external components. In this example, we use AI Thinker ESP32-CAM variant that comes with an […]

Integrate open source InfluxDB and Grafana with AWS IoT to visualize time series data

Across numerous types of implementations, a large portion of IoT applications collect large volumes of telemetry data. From industrial use cases to healthcare, and from consumer goods to logistics, IoT telemetry data points are highly time-dependent. In most IoT solutions, when the data is collected and reported matters for several reasons. For instance, in attribution […]

Determining state in systems with high-frequency updates using AWS IoT Greengrass

Determining state in systems with high-frequency updates using AWS IoT Greengrass

AWS IoT Greengrass extends AWS managed services to edge device systems, providing security, message routing, and local state processing. It also provides a central hub for connectivity with other AWS services using AWS Lambda functions. Some edge systems with multiple devices produce high-frequency updates, such as device shadow updates. It can be difficult to determine […]

Injecting data into AWS IoT Analytics from Amazon Kinesis Data Streams

It is easy to ingest device data directly from connected IoT devices as they are integrated with AWS IoT Core. However, AWS IoT Analytics also provides a public BatchPutMessage API action to allow you to inject data from other data resources. In this post, I show how to inject data into AWS IoT Analytics from […]

Provision Devices Globally with AWS IoT

Customers are building globally distributed IoT solutions with AWS IoT. A device that connects to AWS IoT must be provisioned in an AWS Region. However, when devices are shipped globally, you don’t know in which AWS IoT Region the device will connect when it starts operation. In this blog post, I will describe a global […]

Perform Protocol Conversion at the Edge with AWS Lambda and AWS Greengrass

In industrial automation, you will find dozens of protocols used by devices and PLC vendors: OPC-UA, Modbus TCP, serial, and more. In fact, often in just one facility, it is common to find two similar processes performing the same function with different equipment. AWS Greengrass reduces the operational overhead for businesses to change protocols as […]
