IoT Live Demo – 100.000 Connected Cars with Kubernetes, Kafka, MQTT, TensorFlow

Live Demo – 100.000 Connected Cars – Real Time Processing and Analytics with Kubernetes, Kafka, MQTT and TensorFlow leveraging Confluent and HiveMQ.

You want to see an Internet of Things (IoT) example at huge scale? Not just 100 or 1000 devices producing data, but a really scalable demo with millions of messages from tens of thousands of devices? This is the right demo for you! we leveraging Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, MQTT and TensorFlow.

The demo shows how you can integrate with tens or hundreds of thousands IoT devices and process the data in real time. The demo use case is predictive maintenance (i.e. anomaly detection) in a connected car infrastructure to predict motor engine failures:

IoT Use Case - Kafka MQTT TensorFlow and Kubernetes

IoT Infrastructure – MQTT and Kafka on Kubernetes

We deploy Kubernetes, Kafka, MQTT and TensorFlow in a scalable, cloud-native infrastructure to integrate and analyse sensor data from 100000 cars in real time. The infrastructure is built with Terraform. We use GCP, but you could do the same on AWS, Azure, Alibaba or on premises.

Data processing and analytics is done in real time at scale with GCP GKE, HiveMQ, Confluent and TensorFlow I/O for streaming machine learning / deep learning and bi-directional communication in a scalable, elastic and reliable infrastructure:

IoT Architecture - Kafka MQTT TensorFlow and Kubernetes

Github Project – 100000 Connected Cars

The project is available on Github. You can set the demo up in ~30min by just installing a few CLI tools and executing two or three shell scripts.

Check out the Github project “Streaming Machine Learning at Scale from 100000 IoT Devices with HiveMQ, Apache Kafka and TensorFlow“.

Please try out the demo. Feedback and PRs are welcome.

Error Handling via Dead Letter Queue in Apache Kafka

Recognizing and handling errors is essential for any reliable data streaming pipeline. This blog post explores best practices for implementing error handling using a Dead Letter Queue in Apache Kafka infrastructure. The options include a custom implementation, Kafka Streams, Kafka Connect, the Spring framework, and the Parallel Consumer. Real-world case studies show how Uber, CrowdStrike, Santander Bank, and Robinhood build reliable real-time error handling at an extreme scale.
