Have you ever wanted to tinker around with a Raspberry Pi and IoT but felt that it was too daunting? We’ve developed a set of instructions for you to build a proximity detection system using a Raspberry Pi with an ultra-sonic proximity sensor. The instructions include the materials you need to purchase, how to wire everything together, and the code required to build an application on top of it.
You can now build microservices over proximity events triggered when someone comes close to the device!
Once you’ve detected an object within a certain proximity, what if you wanted to stream this as an event so that it can be picked up by microservices or a dashboard? That’s where Solace PubSub+ Event Broker: Cloud comes into play, a polyglot event broker that allows you to publish IoT events from your Raspberry Pi and subscribe to it with different applications and languages.
Take a look at the codelab here and start building!
