If I want to automate something at home, I can use a Raspberry Pi or Arduino to hookup some sensors and put the business logic on the chip. Internet-of-Things-style, I can even read those sensors on my laptop.
I sincerely hope Raspberries aren't industrially accepted solutions. In the past, I've used a CX9020 to do industrially what I'd do at home with a Raspberry. However, those are fairly expensive, heavy and overly complicated.
What's the industrial equivalent of the Raspberry Pi or Arduino? Something able to withstand industrial (harsh) conditioins and a product owner wouldn't be ashamed to use as an add-on for existing hardware to do the above mentioned.
I've seen the Intel Edison with boards, Beaglebone, the Riotboard, would those fit the bill or are they too 'hackey'?
