Applied Dynamics has released an update to its ADEPT industrial IoT software platform, a data framework that links real-time Linux servers as a distributed resource. Key among its uses is one-click rapid prototyping (RP) deployment. 

The company says ADEPT simplifies the RP process by allowing teams to quickly test developmental control models with real-world systems or simulations, without the need to create application-specific embedded hardware. 

Applied Dynamics says ADEPT’s use of time- and frequency-based computation allows an entire framework of digital assets to run in lockstep as a single system. For rapid prototyping, this means the bridge between virtual development activities and real-world testing is synchronized throughout the platform and all connected assets.

Key attributes of ADEPT that impact rapid development include: 

  • Mix-and-match models from a variety of toolchains 
  • Optimal I/O from top commercial sources 
  • Drag-and-drop connections for models and I/O
  • Off-the-shelf server-class computation 
  • Same codebase for real-time and synchronized virtual models 
  • Feature-rich operator interfaces 
  • Robust data acquisition and playback 
  • Performance statistics, health monitoring 
  • Python scripting, open APIs 
  • Integrated revision control

The company adds that ADEPT is also being used to develop modern data-centric Integration, Verification, and Validation (IVV) workflows, especially as a component of larger Model Based Systems Engineering deployments. 

An overview of the ADEPT framework is available here. 

ADEPT is available directly from Applied Dynamics.
