I Scored 3rd at the Azure AI Hackathon With an IoT Smart Water Meter

January 20, 2020 / GUEST WRITER

I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Microsoft Azure AI Hackathon, where close to 1,000 participants hacked together projects using Azure’s Cognitive Services. In this blog post, I’ll cover how I used the Azure Anomaly Detector API and an IoT Starter Kit – featuring a Raspberry Pi and an IoT SIM card – to create an award-winning smart water meter that measures drastic changes in water levels. First off, let’s cover what we’ll be doing with the above components. The main goal is to collect readings from the starter kit’s ultrasonic sensor and send it via HTTP over cellular to Soracom Beam.
