Using Amazon Alexa to drive a radio-controlled car – Part 1

First published on Nivlesh’s personal blog at https://nivleshc.wordpress.com

Introduction

Over the Easter holidays, while watching my son play with his radio-controlled toy car, I had a strange thought pop into my head. Instead of using the sticks on the remote control, won’t it be cool to control the car by using just your voice? You could tell the car to move forward, backward, left or right. What if you could save all the moves you have asked the car to take so far and then at a later time, get the car to replay all those moves?… [Keep reading] “Using Amazon Alexa to drive a radio-controlled car – Part 1”

Microsoft Teams and IOT controled Robotics — The IOT device

This is the third installment of a four part series on using Microsoft Teams and Azure services to collaborate with machines and devices. In the previous posts, I described how Teams and the Azure BOT services work to send commands to the IoT device attached to the RoboRaptor. This post will describe the IoT hardware and connection on the RoboRaptor to the MXCHIP.

To recap, Teams messages are sent from the Teams user interface to our Azure BOT for analysis.… [Keep reading] “Microsoft Teams and IOT controled Robotics — The IOT device”

Microsoft Teams and IOT controled Robotics — The BOT

Part 2 of 4 series into Teams Controlled Robotics

Part 1 https://blog.kloud.com.au/2019/03/06/intelligent-man-to-machine-collaboration-with-microsoft-teams-robo-raptor/

Microsoft Teams is an excellent collaboration tool with person to person communication workloads like, Messaging, Voice and Video collaboration. Microsoft Teams can also use Microsoft AI and cognitive services to collaborate with machines and devices. The Azure suite of services allows person to machine control, remote diagnostics and telemetrics analytics of internet connected devices.

To demonstrate how Microsoft Teams can control remote robotics, I have created a fun project that allows Teams to manage a RoboRaptor through Teams natural language messages.… [Keep reading] “Microsoft Teams and IOT controled Robotics — The BOT”

Intelligent Man to Machine collaboration with Microsoft TEAMS. -Robo Raptor

Microsoft Teams is excellent collaboration tool with person to person communication workloads like, Messaging, Voice and Video collaboration. Microsoft Teams can also use Microsoft AI and cognitive services to collaborate with machines and devices. Together with the large suite of Azure services that allows me to call Azure apps to orchestrate  person to machine control, remote diagnostics and telemetrics analytics of internet connected devices.

My Teams BOT  is set up as a personal assistant that  manages communications between several of my projects.… [Keep reading] “Intelligent Man to Machine collaboration with Microsoft TEAMS. -Robo Raptor”

Psychodynamics Revisited: Data Privacy

business camera coffee connection
How many of you, between waking up and your first cup of hot, caffeinated beverage, told the world something about yourselves online? Whether it be a social media status update, an Instagram photo or story post or even a tweak to your personal profile on LinkedIn. Maybe, yes, maybe no, although I would hedge my bets that you’ve at least checked your notifications, emails or had a scroll through the newsfeed.
Another way to view this question would be: how many of you interacted with the internet in some way since waking up?… [Keep reading] “Psychodynamics Revisited: Data Privacy”

Sending Events from IoT Devices to Azure IoT Hub using HTTPS and REST

Overview

Different IoT Devices have different capabilities. Whether it is a Micro-controller or Single Board Computer your options will vary. In this post I detailed using MQTT to send messages from an IoT Device to an Azure IoT Hub as well as using the AzureIoT PowerShell Module.
For a current project I needed to send the events from an IoT Device that runs Linux and had Python support. The Azure IoT Hub includes an HTTPS REST endpoint.… [Keep reading] “Sending Events from IoT Devices to Azure IoT Hub using HTTPS and REST”

Promoting and Demoting Site pages to News in Modern SharePoint Sites using SPFx extension and Azure Function

The requirement that I will be addressing in this blog is how to Promote and Demote site pages to news articles in Modern SharePoint sites. This approach allows us to promote any site page to News, add approval steps and demote news articles to site pages if the news need to be updated. The news also shows in the modern news web part when the site page is promoted.
Solution Approach:
To start with, create a site page.… [Keep reading] “Promoting and Demoting Site pages to News in Modern SharePoint Sites using SPFx extension and Azure Function”

Global Azure Bootcamp 2018 – Creating the Internet of YOUR Things

Today is the 6th Global Azure Bootcamp and I presented at the Sydney Microsoft Office on the Creating the Internet of YOUR Things.
In my session I gave an overview on where IoT is going and some of the amazing things we can look forward to (maybe). I then covered a number of IoT devices that you can buy now that can enrich your life.
I then moved on to building IoT devices and leveraging Azure, the focus of my presentation.… [Keep reading] “Global Azure Bootcamp 2018 – Creating the Internet of YOUR Things”
