Carriots SDK

Carriots SDK (Software Development Kit) is the core intelligence engine in Carriots ecosystem.

Where does it stand?
Carriots is a powerful platform that receives data streams (in a quite simplistic view). Devices may have listeners that wait for an event to occur. Events, like receiving data or persisting data, may launch a listener and execute his logic. This is the place where Carriots SDK makes its magic.

Carriots SDK is based on Groovy scripting technology and have libraries to help you work with all Carriots ecosystem. Check our Carriots SDK documentation for more details.
