Our new IoT Gateway device makes it easier for developers to connect to MAP directly from devices.
The gateway runs as a Windows Service on the IoT device or on a Raspberry Pi or a micro PC. It uses a MAP importer to push and pull data from the device directly into MAP. So, the gateway allows bi-directional flow of data making it possible to send instructions from MAP back to the IoT device.
Within MAP, making use of our IoT Entity model, developers can create templates containing Items and Properties and add any calculation they want.
