“Cloud IoT Core was designed to simplify digital transformation by helping customers leverage Google Cloud’s data analytics and machine learning capabilities and act on insights, in real time, from operational data that was previously inaccessible,” said Adam Massey, director, Strategic Technology Partners at Google Cloud. “By working with industry leaders like NXP, we are expanding the surface of innovation to help more customers realize the value of connected devices for their businesses.”
Developed in early partnership with Google, the NXP Android Things platform features an i.MX applications processor to enable cost-effective, feature-rich functionality to a broad group of developers, makers and OEMs. The platform was designed to enable rapid development of affordable, connected, Android-based IoT devices. Now with Google Cloud IoT Core, enterprise and city developers can utilize NXP’s platform to help create a smart, interconnected system of devices that are securely managed and provisioned through the Google Cloud in a city-wide deployment.
