This section covers the concepts of thin-edge, starting with the problem to solve and presenting the building blocks used by thin-edge to build flexible solutions.

In order to build IoT Agents connected to cloud Digital Twins, thin-edge provides a set of versatile software components:

  • The MQTT Bus to interconnect the entities making up a device: software components and hardware.
  • Thin Edge JSON to be standardize the communication over the MQTT Bus.
  • The Agent to implement the device management features.
  • The Mapper to connect a device to the cloud.
  • Extension Points to extend thin-edge to specific application domains, operating systems or hardware.
