Deploying and configuring one device to act as a node in the Internet of Things is relatively easy. Doing the same for hundreds or thousands of devices is not so easy though. This is where the new Eclipse project Kura comes in.
Kura is a Java/OSGi-based container for M2M applications running in service gateways.
Kura was contributed to Eclipse by Eurotech who developed the original technology to run on everything from general purpose devices, rugged mobile computers, wearable devices, service gateways and vehicle consoles, all the way down to the Raspberry Pi.
