Create reusable, scalable, and spatially concise models of smart buildings that connect data across the physical and digital world using this video. For example, using Azure Digital Twins, you can define the location of offices at your place of business. Inside each office there are IoT devices with specific sensors (for example for temperature or lights). You can assign users to each room, so you have a clear view of the distribution of people in the office.

In this new era of smart buildings, this video enables you to visualize comprehensive virtual representations of physical environments and all the associated devices, sensors, and people within it. You will be able to create definitions of spaces and combine them together with information about connected devices and sensors so that you can manage and implement resources with precision.

What You Will Learn

  • Create new Azure Digital Twins service instances

  • Understand Azure Digital Twins object models and spatial intelligence graphs

  • Work with data processing and user-defined functions

  • Quickly connect IoT devices to Azure Digital Twins and create space definitions

  • Discover routing events and messages

  • Look at the limitations and additional resources for implementing solutions

Who This Video Is For

This video is for specialists, developers, and architects who are tasked with creating smart building solutions.

This video begins with a gentle introduction to the Azure Digital Twins service, offering an overview and discussion of the key concepts related to it. From there you will progress through data processing and user-defined functions and learn about real IoT device integration with Azure Digital Twins. You will learn about Azure Digital Twins object models and spatial intelligence graph.

Video Transcript


Welcome to the video introduction to the Azure Digital Twins, IoT device integration in digital and physical spaces. My name is Daniel, and I have pleasure to guide you for this topic. Let me briefly introduce myself. So I’m an active Microsoft most valuable professional. And I work as our principal software engineer in one of the companies in Warsaw, Poland.

I also implement solutions, based on the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, and I am passionate about IoT, Azure, and DevOps related topics. I encourage you to visit my blog and contact me, either on Twitter or LinkedIn.

Let me present the content I will discuss during these video. In the first segment, I will make introduction to the Azure Digital Twin service. I will discuss what it is and how it can be used. In the next segment, I will discuss Azure digital Twins object models and spatial intelligence graph. Next, I will discuss data processing and user defined functions.

I will also present a sample project, where IoT devices with sensors are connected to the Azure Digital Twins. Next, I will present routing events and messages in the Azure Digital Twin service. And at the end, I will present some current limitations and additional resources for Azure Digital Twins. Let’s see what Azure Digital Twins is, and how it can be used in the first segment called Introduction to the Azure Digital Twin service.
