This new feature enables customers to use AWS IoT Greengrass Core on Edge devices running OpenWrt on Armv7l and Armv8 CPU architectures. These customers can now connect these devices to the Cloud, execute AWS Lambda functions, execute predictions based on ML Models and keep device data in sync, even with not directly connected to the internet. Customers can deploy IoT Greengrass on any OpenWrt image that uses Linux kernel 3.17, or later.
AWS IoT Device Tester verifies that the combination of your device’s CPU architecture, Linux kernel configuration, and drivers work with AWS IoT Greengrass. It performs a series of automated functional tests including end-to-end tests with AWS IoT Core to validate that your device can interoperate with AWS IoT Services. AWS IoT Device Tester enables APN partners to qualify (AWS Device Qualification Program (DQP)) and list devices in the AWS Partner Device Catalog.
