Internet of Things (IoT)
The Eclipse IoT Working Group is a collaboration of industry and academic partners who are building a set of open source technology that will be the foundation for the Internet of Things (IoT). The focus of the collaboration is on building 1) open source implementations of IoT standards and protocols, 2) open source frameworks and services that will be used by IoT solutions, and 3) tools for IoT developers. This wiki page tracks the activities of the working group.
The iot.eclipse.org web site is intended to be the source of information for people who want to use the Eclipse IoT technology.
OPC Unified Architecture is an interoperability standard that enables the secure and reliable exchange of industrial automation data while remaining cross-platform and vendor neutral. The specification, currently version 1.03, is developed and maintained by the OPC Foundation with the guidance of individual software developers, industry vendors, and end-users. It defines the interface between Clients and Servers, including access to real-time data, monitoring of alarms and events, historical data access, and data modeling.
Hono provides a uniform (remote) service interface that supports both the Telemetry as well as Command & Control message exchange pattern requirements.
The Eclipse Edje project provides a standard hardware abstraction Java API required for delivering IoT services that meet performance and memory constraints of microcontroller-based devices. Edje also provides ready-to-use software packages for target hardware that developers can get from third-parties to develop quickly and easily IoT device software and applications.
Project hawkBit aims to create a domain independent back end solution for rolling out software updates to constrained edge devices as well as more powerful controllers and gateways connected to IP based networking infrastructure. Devices can be connected to the hawkBit server either directly through an optimized interface or indirectly through federated device management servers.
