Introduction to the Drone Journey
This post is the tenth post in documenting the steps I went through on my journey to build an autonomous, voice-controlled, face recognizing drone. There are 9 other posts building up to this one which you can find at the end of this post.
Focus of this post
Up until now we have been mostly working on controlling the drone, using the Microsoft Cognitive Services Face API to identify people and lastly making use of the Microsoft Cognitive Services API to convert text to speech and speech to text.
In this blog the focus will move to:
- How we can take some of the telemetry information from the drone and pass it to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub.
- Using Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics to grab data in real-time
- Visualizing the acquired data in real-time using Microsoft PowerBI.
Ultimately we will have built an intelligent end-to-end IoT solution featuring analytics and visualization. The instructions here can be used to also understand how to get data in from other devices as well!
