Module 4: Deploying Remote Updates with Torizon OTA



Torizon OTA is a convenient and secure mechanism that enables over-the-air updates for either a single unit or a fleet of devices. It is part of the Torizon platform and works out-of-the-box with the TorizonCore OS. You can:

  • Update your application.
  • Update the default TorizonCore OS.
  • Upload and update your own custom version of TorizonCore.
  • Manage devices.
  • Manage fleets, a.k.a groups of devices.

In this module, you will get used to the experience of update containers remotely using Torizon OTA.

Warning: Follow precautions for handling electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD)
