The concept of digital transformation is very relevant at the moment due to the epidemiological situation and the transition of the world to the digital environment. IoT is one of the main drivers of digital transformation. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an extension of the Internet, which consists of sensors, controllers, and other various devices, the so-called "things," that communicate with each other over the network. In this paper, the development of hardware and software for the organization of fog and edge computing was divided into three levels: hardware, orchestration, application. Application level also was divided into two parts: software and architectural. The hardware was implemented using two versions of the Raspberry Pi: Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi Zero, which are connected in master-slave mode. The orchestration used K3S, Knative and Nuclio technologies. Technologies such as Linkerd service network, NATS messaging system, implementation of RPC – GRPC protocol, TDengine database, Apache Ignite, Badger were used to implement the software part of the application level. The architecture part is designed as an API development standard, so it can be applied to a variety of IoT software solutions in any programming language. The system can be used as a platform for construction of modern IoT-solutions on the principle of fog/edge computing.
