A Survey of Big Data Analytics Software

Posted by Matt Newton on May 18, 2017 8:09:57 AM

In a previous post we covered time series data.

We talked about how process automation and control data can feed our big data applications and cloud-based software platforms, to build Industrial Internet of Things applications.

In this post we'll take a look at how time series data can be used to develop time series models.

EdgeX: An Open-source IIoT Platform from The Linux Foundation

Posted by Matt Newton on Apr 25, 2017 8:09:03 AM

One of the biggest questions companies face when surveying IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) technology is where to invest. The IIoT can be a pretty foggy and technologically diverse topic for anyone to understand. And there are so many competing standards out there today that it’s tough to identify which path to take.

But a new platform built upon an open source, extensible framework for IIoT technology called EdgeX was recently announced, and it may be just what the industry needs to part the clouds of confusion and shine some clarity on the IIoT.

Useful Node-RED Nodes for Your IIoT Application

Posted by Matt Newton on Apr 18, 2017 1:59:59 PM


In several previous posts we talked about some of the software technologies automation professionals should put on their radar in preparation for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.

JavaScript, node.js and Node-RED offer a ton of benefits to those looking to build their IIoT application. Learn more about the Industrial Internet of Things in the 2017 State of the IIoT

OptoNews: Connect serial devices to your groov Box with Admin 46

Posted by Jean Femia on Apr 12, 2017 5:15:24 PM

We've just released groov Admin 1.570.46, with a new feature some of you have been asking for: the ability to use data from serial devices with your GROOV AR1 Box.

Using a USB-to-serial converter and Node-RED software (included in the GROOV AR1), you can connect RS‑232, RS‑485, or RS‑422 serial devices (2‑wire or 4‑wire) to the groov Box.

Your IoT middleware checklist

Posted by Matt Newton on Mar 2, 2017 8:00:00 AM

In a recent developer survey conducted by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, IEEE IoT, and Agile IoT, 40.8% of respondents indicated that the IoT solutions they were either currently building or planning to build are IoT platforms or IoT middleware.

Almost every large IT or OT company today has some form of IoT platform or middleware.

In fact, right now there are over 150 self-described IoT platforms in the market today. Not neccessarily created equally.

From IoT to IIoT: an industry pivot

Posted by Matt Newton on Feb 23, 2017 8:00:00 AM

This week Opto 22 is exhibiting at the Open IoT Summit in Portland, Oregon. The IoT Summit is a Linux Foundation event, packed with a ton of technology workshops and product demos.

We also exhibited at the IoT Summit last year. It’s a great chance to connect with the Linux developer community and get their perspective on things, since it’s so much different from what a typical industrial automation professional is exposed to.
