Node-RED, the JS Foundation's flow-based programming tool which allows for rapid application development and is used to map data flows within IoT applications continues to grow in both adoption as well as support and contribution. Today, Hitachi has announced (article currently only in Japanese) that they will be contributing new, critical features to the Node-RED project and that Node-RED will be an integral piece in their IoT platform, Lumada, which is a multi-tiered platform designed to bring critical insights into an organizations IoT data.
In their work to develop and advance their Lumada platform, Hitachi realized that it would be critical for their customers and partners to be able to easily develop IoT solutions and that a "low-code" environment like Node-RED would bring this to the platform. At the same time, it was clear that additional features would be needed in Node-RED to optimize its use in Lumada. Specifically, the need for automating the communication and cooperation of different systems would be critical to their customers. This need led to the creation and contribution of Flow Connection Gateway which manages this communication between systems. They have also created functionality to automatically generate Node parameters in Node-RED based on an API specification to further enable their customers to rapidly develop their IoT solutions.
