Then you design, write, test and deploy an application to collect the data and integrate the machine into our production process.

Part of that process is to manage the software that runs on our fleet of edge devices. This requires to deliver software and OS updates to thousands of edge gateways remotely, reliably, securely and at scale. For this, we have built a custom fleet management system and Linux distribution that you and the team continuously improve.
