IoT Deep Dive
In this hands-on lab and the ones that follow, you will build a comprehensive IoT solution that demonstrates some of the very best features Microsoft Azure has to offer, including IoT Hubs, Event Hubs, Azure Functions, Stream Analytics, and Cognitive Services. The solution you build today will culminate into an Air-Traffic Control (ATC) app that shows simulated aircraft flying through an ATC sector and warns users when aircraft get too close to each other. While these labs are best to do with several peers, there is an application in the lab assets which can inject simulated drones into the workstream.
You will be the pilot of one of these aircraft. And to do the flying, you will use the MXChip IoT DevKit, which is an Arduino-compatible device that is ideal for prototyping IoT solutions. It features an array of sensors, including an accelerometer, a gyrometer, and temperature and humidity sensors, and it includes built-in Wi-Fi so it can transmit data to Azure IoT Hubs wirelessly. It also features a micro-USB port by which you can connect it to your laptop, upload software, and power the hardware. You will control your aircraft by tilting the MXChip IoT DevKit backward and forward to go up and down, and rotating it left and right to turn.
