What is AWS IoT Core?

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud service that lets connected devices interact with cloud applications and other devices. It includes the Device Gateway and the Message Broker, which connect and process messages between IoT devices and the cloud. AWS IoT Core connects AWS and Amazon services like AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon SageMaker, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon QuickSight, and Alexa Voice Service to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage any infrastructure. The AWS IoT Device and Mobile SDKs include open-source libraries, developer guides with samples, and porting guides so that users can build innovative IoT products or solutions on your choice of hardware platforms.

Data collection is something that we very much rely on in our company. On top of that, we use a bunch of AWS products such as Lambda, S3, and Sagemaker to collect, gather, process and analyze data. AWS IoT Core helps us stream data collection from multiple points in order to do all that.

We developed a solution on Electronic health record as a service and found the need of AWS iot core for subscribing devices for automated notification and messages for updating electronic health records and screening methods. AWS iot core enable us to develop and scale a full stack solution without the need of managing the entire infrastructure. We wish to continue exploring its need in asset management and predictive maintenance solution of medical devices.

We help a customer adopt IoT Core for their manufacturing floors, where they have wanted to establish a network to connect data from all machines, plants, and systems across more than 100+ factory sites. The customer has been sitting on low productivity and high factory cost, and adding in IoT Core was able to help them achieved not only a smarter manufacturing process but a better cost-value basis.

We had a mobile application and with the help of that, we used to connect with IoT devices using Bluetooth and send the data to the elastic cache using a firehose. we were mainly using MQTT for the data transmission from one place to another.

AWS IOT core is used to integrate smart locks with mobile for example door lock and case lock. The business requirement is to implement a solution, where- a user should be able to issue a command to the lock, to generate a temporary key for an approved accessor who wants to access it. that temp key is able to open the lock for a specified duration.

We were using it to scan BLE signals from devices such as mobile ones and successfully send the data to the Amazon Elastic Cache product for more important use by checking which signal could be used based on certain conditions depending on our business needs.

AWS IoT core helps in collecting, managing data from IoT devices without having to manage the underlying infrastructure and focus on creating better experiences for customers.
The industrial, customer data collected with the help of core had 1 major usecase for us. First was to send service updates to customers based on usage of IoT implemented consumer durable household devices. This lead to timely servicing of devices and increase in revenue for our clients.

AWS IoT is used to develop and prototype IoT devices. Recently, I have been prototyping an IoT device using a Raspberry Pi, and I decided to choose AWS IoT Core for the cloud solution. Basically it is used by IT departments and the technicians used this to communicate with IoT-based applications. By hosting on the cloud and using AWS, our processes have improved dramatically. Increased speed, reliability, and ease of maintenance. AWS IoT has also helped streamline device management and has allowed more free time for our IT folks. Data analysts of the QA department can now quickly analyze data coming from the sorting machine sensors.

We use IoT to integrate with on-prem warehouse technologies. It is a scalable system for building a complete solution for smarter device integration, management, observability and monitoring. As a multi-faceted offering with direct integration to other AWS services we are able to solve a wide variety of novel problems that arise for our specific use-cases

We are using AWS IoT in the whole organisation as a platform of choice to connect our IoT device to the AWS cloud. It enables us to access the cloud in an easy, convenient and, what is the most important aspect, secure way. Currently due to coronavirus pandemic cloud connectivity became crucial for our company.

AWS IoT is used to develop and prototype IoT devices. Recently, I have been prototyping an IoT device using a Raspberry Pi, and I decided to choose AWS IoT Core for the cloud solution. AWS IoT is used by the engineering department only to prototype and connect IoT devices to cloud solutions and perform analytics on the sensor data generated by IoT devices. By using AWS IoT Core, the business does not have to think about separate analytics software and data storage solution for the data generated by the IoT devices. With the use of the AWS IoT Core, we don't have to think about backend solutions and our focus remains on developing a power IoT edge device with less cost.

AWS IoT helps us to connect our IoT applications to cloud based services. It is more secure and allows us to pass tons of messages. Basically it is used by IT departments and the technicians used this to communicate with IoT based applications. Technicians test their devices through the cloud based services.

AWS IoT is being used by ASU to transform our campus into a smart campus where we deploy sensors across the campus and the stadium to gather valuable telemetry data. It has addressed the business problem of providing a better gameday experience during football games.

As a part of the R&D department at my organization, we were working on an IoT based solution for one of our use case. I explored Azure IoT and AWS IoT for the same. We had some Temperature and other sensors and we wanted to show their readings at a reliable platform. Due to the AWS ecosystem, we went with AWS IoT connected it with our sensors then took its data processed it. Many things can be achieved but this was our simple solution when we used AWS IoT.
