FAQ

Q: How many devices can I create at one time?

A: With the IoT Device Simulator, you can create up to 100 virtual IoT devices at a time. For example, to launch 400 virtual devices, you can create four batches of 100 devices.

Q: How many simulations can I run at one time?

A: This solution allows you to run up to 1,000 simultaneous simulations across the simulation engine. Each virtual IoT device is one simulation. If you request more than 1,000 simulations at a given time, they will be queued and executed when the number of current simulations is less than 1,000.

Q: Can I create a virtual fleet of connected vehicles?

A: The solution includes a pre-built automotive module that you can use to simulate vehicle telemetry data using pre-defined device types. The automotive module uses a power train simulation model to generate simulated vehicle telemetry data. You can also leverage the location features of Mapbox to provide a map for your simulated vehicles. For more information, see the implementation guide.

Q: Can I deploy this solution in any AWS Region?

A: This solution uses the AWS Fargate service, which is currently available in specific AWS Regions only. Therefore, you must deploy this solution in a Region where AWS Fargate is available. For more information, see AWS service availability by Region.
