Deploy from GitHub actions to Raspberry Pi

After IoT devices have been deployed into the world, it may be necessary to update them for additional security or functionality but gaining physical access to the device may no longer be possible or might be very costly. In 2015, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the world's seventh largest automaker, issued a safety recall notice for 1.4 million vehicles in order fix a software hole that allowed hackers to wirelessly break into some vehicles and electronically control vital functions. Vehicle owners were left on their own to install the patch, which would typically be done by downloading the patch to a USB drive, then plugged into a vehicle port and uploading (source).

Fortunately today, there are over-the-air (OTA) software and firmware updates that allow embedded devices to be reprogrammed over their wireless connection instead of with a physical hardware device. In short, an OTA update is the wireless deployment of new software, firmware or other data to edge devices /Internet of Things use cases like consumer electronics, automobiles and smart sensors.

Emerging IoT Applications Utilizing Edge Computing

delivery drone fleet communicating over the internet with low latency

A new generation of innovative technology solutions that lower latency are converging to empower an industrial transformation upon which tomorrow’s world will be iterated and dependent. This is driven by the need of seamless high data exchange applications that currently experience challenges in the latency of their network connectivity, meaning the amount of time it takes for data to travel between sender and receiver is too long. There is a growing portfolio of solutions aiming to lower latency making far-reaching new applications possible and existing use cases more efficient.
