My presentation “All your device are belong to us” [M240] is now online at MSDN Channel 9
So much hype, so many different devices, so many protocols, so much data, so little security, welcome to the Internet of Things. Come and see how you can build an affordable, securable, scalable, interoperable, robust & reliable solution with embedded devices, Windows 10 IoT and Microsoft Azure. By 2020 there will be 26 Billion devices and 4.5 million developers building solutions so the scope is limitless.
I had 8 devices in my presentation so the scope for disaster was high.
The Arduino demo used
The Netduino demo used
The hobbyist data acquisition demo collected data from two devduino devices that were in passed around by the audience and were each equipped with a Temperature & Humidity sensor. They uploaded data to Xively over an NRF24L01 link to a gateway running on a Netduino 3 Ethernet and the data was displayed in real-time on my house information page
- devduino V1.3
- Temperature & Humidity sensor
- devduino V2.0
- Netduino 3 Ethernet
- RFX Arduino nRF24L01 Shield
The professional data acquisition demo uploaded telemetry data to an Azure ServiceBus EventHub and retrieved commands from an Azure ServiceBus Queue. Both devices were running software based on Azure ServiceBus Lite by Paolo Paiterno
The telemetry stream was the temperature of some iced water.
The commands were processed by a Raspbery PI running Windows 10 IoT Core which turned a small fan on & off to illustrate how a FrostFan could be used in a vineyard to reduce frost damage to the vines.
My demos all worked on the day which was a major win as many other presenters struggled with connectivity. Thanks to the conference infrastructure support guys who helped me sort things out.
With the benefit of hindsight, I tried to fit too much in and the overnight partial rewrite post attending the presentation Mashup the Internet of Things, Azure App Service and Windows 10 to Deliver Business Value [M387] by Rob Tiffany was a bit rushed.
