AWS wants to make to make Internet of Things smarter by giving them compute capabilities.
Users will be able to run IoT applications across both its cloud and local devices thanks to the application of AWS Lambda and AWS IoT.
The ability to build these in to IoT devices is said to make them more intelligent by giving them the ability to do things like respond to local events while operating with intermittent connections.
Currently in preview, the company said that devices which are running Linux and support x86 or ARM architectures will be able to host Greengrass Core, this enables local execution of Lambda code, security, cashing and messaging.
Once this is running then a device will run as a hub that communicates with other devices that have the AWS IoT Device SDK installed.
