IIoT Edge Computing


Keep industrial data in sync, responding securely and in real-time.

The Digitization of Manufacturing happens on the Edge

Industry 4.0 has been a buzz word for decades. One reason why digital transformation has taken so long to manifest is the lack of mature technologies to fulfill manufacturer’s requirements. To bring rapid technology advances into the manufacturing setting, data storage and synchronization needs to happen primarily on the edge. There are two main reasons for this:

– First: Smart Manufacturing needs reliable speed (i.e. fast data); machines like motion controllers have a hard real-time requirement and factory automation has soft real-time requirements.

– Second: Data security and privacy are of the essence; keeping data out of the cloud makes this much more manageable.



With ObjectBox we provide the data storage and synchronization solution to enable your Smart Manufacturing projects.


ObjectBox Empowers Edge Computing in Industrial IoT

With ObjectBox, enable critical, real time response rates on IIoT devices and machines, and ensure that industrial applications always work whether online or offline. ObjectBox Sync keeps data seamlessly up to date and synchronized across devices, from sensor to server.

Respond Faster & Ensure High Quality

ObjectBox enables you to persist and use data in near realtime locally on manufacturing units like e.g. controllers. This means quality issues or abnormalities can be addressed the moment they occur, or additive manufacturing units can adapt to slight changes in the surrounding conditions. ObjectBox allows you to manage high I/O throughputs locally, quickly, and reliably.

Save Dev Time, Implement Faster & Easier

ObjectBox is built by developers for developers – all of our solutions are as lean as it gets and super easy to use. ObjectBox uses natural language APIs (like Java, Kotlin, swift, C, C++, Flutter/Dart, …), so developers don’t need to learn a new language. ObjectBox is fast and solves complex data synchronization out of the box. In sum, this means faster coding, more fun, and faster time to market.

Keep Units in Sync & Improve Efficiency

While IIoT edge computing has various benefits, many IIoT projects need part of their data accessible in the cloud or an on-premise server, or synced between units. With ObjectBox Sync, choose what data to synchronize and when. ObjectBox Sync takes care of keeping data accurate and up-to-date across manufacturing units, and cloud costs reasonable as projects scale.

IIoT Use Cases on the Edge


When layering, small changes in the environment need to be incorporated quickly and efficiently to ensure quality. Faster and more precise manufacturing depends on constant adaptation. The limiting factor currently is the I/O throughput. ObjectBox’ speed enables higher I/O throughput.

    • Large and complex data volume
    • Real time response needed
    • Data primarily useful at the local level


Quality Assurance

Quality issues are costly for producers; both in time and raw material. The faster issues can be caught, and action can be taken, the better. ObjectBox empowers video quality control in real time on the edge, allowing for autonomous action at the machine level.

  • High fidelity data
  • Real time autonomy possible
  • Synchronization keeps operators up to date on real time status



Catching machine failures before they occur are a huge cost saving. Processing and monitoring raw data locally at the source, e.g. analyzing audio data for anomalies, allows operators to catch and react to maintenance issues in real time while keeping cloud costs low. ObjectBox enables operators to process more data faster using existing hardware.

  • Analyse high fidelity data, while keeping cloud costs low
  • Sync only interesting data
  • Do more with existing hardware

ObjectBox in a Nutshell



ObjectBox is a high performance data storage solution for IoT and Mobile devices. For the devs: embedded, object-oriented, NoSQL, ACID compliant, <1MB footprint, time series feature, 10x faster than alternatives (see open source benchmarks).


data sync

ObjectBox Sync syncs the data you want to sync between edge device and the cloud automatically for you. It’s super efficient, so it saves energy and cloud costs. It is out-of-the-box, so developers save time and can go to market faster.


why edge computing?

Edge Computing keeps data local, and makes data storage and processing: sustainable, efficient, real time, offline, and secure. We believe Edge Computing is the future of computing, and we aren’t the only ones.
