IIoT Platform architecture design

IIoT Platform architecture design



This activity involves the end users MARINITITANIA and KEMI

Objective and Outcomes

The taks aims to:

  • design the architecture of the Dig_IT Platform;
  • define the Dig_IT data management technologies.

The ask help to achieve the WP3 goals defining the design of a well-established IIoT Platform which incorporates various data management technologies and its outcomes affect task T3.2 “Local and wide area communication infrastructure and localization techniques” and WP4 “Digital Twins Layer” and WP5 “Intelligence Layer”.

IIoT Platform architecture design​


The Dig_IT architecture platform for the different components (from devices and sensors, the monitoring units, controllers, data gathering technologies, networks etc.) is accomplished by transforming all system requirements into technical specifications. The platform architecture features real time data collection from the distributed sensors across the worksite of the demo cases. Consequently, near real-time data transmission was implemented with publish-subscribe messaging protocol technologies such as MQTT and Kafka. All the software and hardware infrastructure were designed on such a way that it will expedite and ease the work of end users. The whole architectural design is scalable, flexible and it ensures interoperability and easy information flow between the various components and different data concepts (e.g. real time measurements, input or output of models, economical information etc.). Therefore, IIoT platform stores data from multiple data sources and sends them to multiple data destinations. All of Dig_IT data are stored in a central location and can be accessed from all Dig_IT components and users.
