Guide Concept

The Edge MicroServer (EMS) facilitates connectivity from Edge devices to ThingWorx Foundation.

It’s often easier, though, to start development with simulated Edge values rather than hooking up sensors.

This guide will show you how to simulate vibration values of an engine using the EMS.
