Experimenting with data capture using Raspberry Pi and Microsoft Azure

Experimenting with data capture using Raspberry Pi and Microsoft Azure

There are a plethora of cloud-based services that can be used to receive and analyse data, and the following example uses Microsoft’s Azure to receive data from a Raspberry Pi. In order to demonstrate this, Instructables user cgaine has two DS18B20 temperature sensors that are connected to a Raspberry Pi which captures the data and sens it to Azure.

Both hardware and software sides are explained, including the python code for the Pi, using the Azure API and also setting up the Azure database and event hub.

For complete details on this interesting application – visit the project’s Instructable page. And for more, we’re on facebookGoogle+, and twitter – so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you’re interested in measuring temperature with a reliable sensor – consider using our DS18B20-based temperature sensor module:

The Freetronics temperature sensor modiule uses the Dallas DS18B20 1-wire digital temperature sensor, with a wide measurement range of -55 to +125°C at an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C. For more information, tutorials and to order – visit the product page
