Industrial IoT Reference Architecture

The Industrial IoT Reference Platform (IoT for Manufacturing - IoT4 Platform) is the synthesis of the three Smart / Digital / Virtual domains into one unified Reference Architecture that brings together FIWARE GEs, FITMAN SEs and lessons learned during the development of FITMAN's ten Trial Platforms. Its broader scope addresses complex real-world use cases involving multiple facets of the Manufacturing Enterprise. In particular, new key enabling technologies like Big Data Processing and Machine Learning have been integrated. Shopfloor security and IoT-specific issues (e.g., proximity of computation to physical systems) have been addressed by the introduction of a Smart Gateway layer which may play the role of an Edge Node in large scale distributed deployments. The diagram below depicts the relationships between the IoT4M Platform's components.
