TNWiki Article Spotlight – Full Home Automation with Azure & Voice Assistance using Intel Galileo Gen 1 & Windows 10


Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.

I remember the time I first played around with a Raspberry Pi. Endless possibilities. Short after that a GrovePi joined the party. A lot of sensor you can combine in multiple ways. The fun part of it was to demo it to an actual customer with an analytical backend. They call it IoT (or in German also "Industrie 4.0", Industry 4.0). I call it a toy for a grown-up. If you feel the same way (or you want to) Rishabh Banga, a fellow Microsoft Student Partner, wrote an article about a full home automation, which is using Azure, voice recognition and the Intel Galileo board. He shows step-by-step how to set up every component in this scenario.

I really enjoyed reading and hope you will too!

  1. Voice recognition too! This is awesome! Thanks go out to Rishabh!

    This article is completely misleading. I thought I will get to learn many things from this but I don’t know how author has done this project. Windows 10 IoT core is not available for Intel Galileo but he has installed it and made it working? How? In the
    first half of article he was talking about Galileo but at last he posted image of Raspberry Pi. He has copied the voice command part from Instructables completely but in the Galileo code he did not write how he will receive the cortana commands or how he will
    send data to Azure.

    Simona, a humble request to you – Kindly search for things over Google before making accusations.

    1. Windows IoT Core WAS available. They’ve recently said that they’d be withdrawing support for the same starting 1st November.

    Here’s your link:

    http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win8/SetupPC.htm

    2. We do not see any images that may otherwise resemble a RPi2 to a Galileo Board, so if you could point out the mage, it would be helpful.

    3. The procedure to how data will be communicated between Azure and Galileo has been given and some excerpts of the code have been provided. This isn’t a spoon feeding article, but a simple motivational article to show people what all can be achieved by integrating
    multiple Microsoft Technologies.

    It is useless to argue with a fool. You run a Maker Space and doing this type of fake work. What you said in the first point is true but it is not related to your article and you are not even accepting your mistake and arguing, go and check your revisions
    where you cooked up stories and posted images of different devices. I am not asking for any explanations, all i just wanted to say your article is completely wrong from the begging. For your third point, it is actually hilarious . Hope any Windows IoT expert
    will look into this.
