For most IoT users, the physical device is only part of the story–a digital twin (a.k.a. virtual companion) for each device is usually needed. Imagine a smart home smoke detector that beeps loudly but fails to notify residents or authorities on a mobile device because of a system error. That’s just IoT without the “I”.
In this webinar with Hugh McKee, Developer Advocate for Akka Platform, we’ll look at “What on Earth”, a demo exploring how Akka Microservices serves as an ideal solution for high-scale digital twinning for IoT–exemplified by Tesla in this TechRepublic article.
What we cover in this presentation:
Check out the demo projects yourself on GitHub, where you can find the WoE Simulator and WoE Twin microservice examples used in this presentation. Note that these projects are still a work in progress, and the README areas will be updated.
