Previously I have discussed Kura Wires — the upcoming feature in Eclipse Kura aiming to solve Industrial IoT challenges.
Today, in this post, I would like to show you a sneak peek on the beta version of Kura Wires.
Kura Wires Composer UI
This is the Composer UI of Kura Wires to implement Industrial IoT scenarios by creating a Wire Graph. (Please refer to this link to know more about the different terminologies involved in Kura Wires.)
This shows an example IIoT scenario. We're accumulating and storing telemetry data from Modbus PLC and publishing it to the cloud platform.
This partially shows the different configurable parameters for a Modbus Asset. Based on the driver implementation that the Asset uses, the configurable options get changed. Here, what you see is strictly specific to Modbus Driver, as I have associated a Modbus Driver implementation to the Asset in the Wire Graph.
In my upcoming talk on Kura Wires in EclipseCON Germany, I would love to discuss the nitty-gritty details of Kura Wires and would love to present an end-to-end scenario using Kura Wires. I hope you like the new feature in Eclipse Kura, as it focuses on speeding up development of any IoT application scenario. Apart from these, we are also striving our best to create an ecosystem surrounding Kura Wires, where developers around the world would develop special purpose Wire Components and Drivers that any IoT application developer can use from the Eclipse Marketplace by dragging and dropping it to their Eclipse Kura installations as well.
