The Internet of Things (IoT) can be broadly defined as an umbrella term for a range of technologies that enable devices to connect and interact with each other. Interacting devices generating data provide the foundation for a range of new applications. Industrial automation, healthcare, smart home, smart cities, smart grids and smart farming are some of the areas in which IoT provides substantial benefits.
Dubbed the "fourth industrial revolution" or Industry 4.0, the Industrial IoT (IIoT) is the digitization of industrial assets and processes that connects products, machines, services, locations/ sites to workers, managers, suppliers, and partners. Closer networking of the digital world with the physical world of machines helps achieve higher productivity, safety, efficiency and sustainability.
The core task of any IoT solution is to get data from the field to the cloud where analysis of the same generates the desired value addition for the application. This application note aims to propose an elegant solution to achieve this task based on Adrastea-I Cellular module.
