- Device provisioning from Cloud
- ThingWorx private Cloud
- Firmware and configuration update
- Portable solution (Windows, WEC2013, Linux)
RTSoft has developed a new cross-platform solution (a communication agent) for WEC2013, Windows 10 and Linux. The agent is based on Anjay.io framework which is an official reference implementation of a LWM2M client, and is written in C language with small memory footprint and good performance. RTSoft was a first company who ported a LWM2M client to WEC2013. Also, RTSoft implemented a communication stack for the agent which uses HTTP and CoAP protocols. These functionality were ported to WEC2013, Win 10, Linux platforms as well.
The solution should allow an automatic rollback in case of update failures such as connectivity problem or unexpected power loss, implement versioning and secure delivery mechanisms, and be customizable for future integrations.
Additionally, the solution should include a cloud back-end service for device and software repository, content delivery and rollout management.
The target devices’s characteristics are:
- SoC: Mediatek MT7688
- Flash memory: 64MB
- Operating system: Linux (OpenWRT)
The solution was presented at the CES 2018 Show in Las Vegas.
G+D Currency Technology has assigned RTSoft to code the agent for automated remote software updates and data exchange for BPS C2 banknote processing systems with central dashboards.
