How To Install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 3
The Raspberry Pi might not be an ideal tool for process automation and control.
But it can be useful as a gateway for collecting data from your existing PLC systems such as Siemens, AB and Modbus devices. Allowing you to translate your industrial protocols into internet-ready ones, send data to the cloud and to basically prototype your IIoT ideas.
The cost of prototyping your ideas? Next to nothing.
And, It’s non-intrusive.
However, you’ll likely be challenged with choosing between the Linux environment of the official pi OS (Debian) and Windows 10 IoT Core.
Debian effectively makes the pi a tiny computer that can be used for many different purposes, as you’d have with a normal sized computer.
On the other hand, Windows 10 IoT Core is specifically designed for IoT scenarios in such a way that your app owns the whole user interface and experience. Allowing you to leverage existing development tool-chains in Visual Studio to access IO and communicate with enterprise applications in a robust manner.
In this video, I demonstrate how to install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 3, which is the first step to building IoT applications using this OS.
In the following videos, I’ll explore IIoT development using the pi in-depth.
THE HALF LIFE OF A LEARNED SKILL USED TO BE 30 YEARS. TODAY IT'S 5.
And it will continue to decrease exponentially. The only way to avoid becoming irrelevant is to get in the habit of reinventing yourself every single day.
