We use EPC-R3220 as an example.

  • Version: R3220A1AIM20UIV20003_am335x_2020-04-13
  • OS: Ubuntu 18.04
  • Kernel: 4.14.79


To install Moby-engine for Arm platforms.

$ curl > ./microsoft-prod.list
$ sudo cp ./microsoft-prod.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
$ curl | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg
$ sudo cp ./microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install moby-engine

IoT Edge

Install the latest stable version.

$ sudo apt-get install iotedge

Or, you can get the specific version and install maunally, e.g. we have 1.0.9 currently.

$ wget
$ wget

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Once it's done, you can get the iotedge version correctly.

$ iotedge --version
iotedge 1.0.9

Configuration & Deployment

For Azure configurations, please refer to [1] for details. You can learn how to create a IoT hub and register an IoT Edge device.

To fix DNS check error, add DNS settings for Docker.

$ vim /etc/docker/daemon.json
        "dns": [""]
$ sudo systemctl restart docker


To manually provision a device, you need to provide it with a device connection string that you can create by registering a new device in your IoT hub.

$ cd /etc/iotedge
$ sudo chmod 666 config.yaml
$ sudo vim config.yaml
  source: "manual"
  device_connection_string:  ";DeviceId=XXX;SharedAccessKey=dgls932Y/ej8/quF+b+Kg/Bbd4V+PaQOc54upbO/09c="

Then, run the commands below to make sure iot Edge device is running well.

$ sudo systemctl restart iotedge
$ systemctl status iotedge
· iotedge.service - Azure IoT Edge daemon  
  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/iotedge.service; enabled; vendor  preset:  
  Active: active (running)

$ sudo iotedge list
NAME             STATUS           DESCRIPTION      CONFIG
edgeAgent        running          Up 30 seconds

You are able to see the device is connected on Azure as well.


To deploy a module into IoT Edge device, please refer to [3] for details.
