PICMG branches out with IIoT proposal, yes really

By Nick Flaherty

PICMG, perhaps more well known for the AdvancedTCA, CompactPCI and COM Express hardware standards, is looking at a new specification for the Indusitrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

It has been giving live demonstrations connecting sensor and controller endpoints using new Internet of Things (IoT) methodologies at the Sensors Expo show in the US this week.

The demos are using the RESTful API "put, get, delete" commands for the connected sensor/controller interaction and PICMG has a working agreement with the DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) to use the well-known Redfish APIs.

The new PICMG specification will intend to develop a meta-data model that encompasses a breadth of individual data models to help legacy sensors and PLCs become IoT-enabled.
