This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Virtual IoT sensors and their purpose in an ecosystem
There are two categories of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors namely
physical sensors and software based sensors. The latter are also
referred to as virtual IoT senors. These virtual senors base their
output and operation on aggregated calculations of one or more
underlying physical sensors or alternatively they process data input and
provide a new interpreted value. An integral part of the operation of a
virtual IoT sensor is to post the data as an output to a database where
it can be accessed by an API and displayed on a portal.
