Project Concept

In this tutorial, you’ll develop an application that integrates data from a Raspberry Pi (including other options, such as a distance sensor and/or a temperature/humidity sensor).

We’ll show you how to capture, store, analyze, and visualize data utilizing Vuforia Studio and the ThingWorx platform.

Things used in this project

Environment:

In order to complete this tutorial, you will need:

  • Vuforia Studio installed, and access to an Experience Service (this is setup by default with the Studio Trial)

    NOTE: If you have never used Vuforia Studio before, follow the steps in the Getting Started with Vuforia Studio guide before proceeding with this Quickstart.

  • Download the RaspberryPiKit.zip
  • Download the Vuforia View app from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store
  • A printer to print your ThingMark
  • A supported mobile device (phone or tablet)
  • Raspberry Pi equipment:
    • Raspberry Pi with a power supply — If you don't have one, purchase one directly from the Raspberry Pi web site, or from one of their distribution partners, element14, or RS.
    • An SD card (8 GB or larger) with the Raspbian Jessie operating system installed
    • A form of external sensor if desired (for example, an HC-SR04 distance sensor or a DHT11 temperature/humidity sensor)
