Raspberry Pi Tutorial
Welcome to the Vuforia Studio Raspberry Pi tutorial!
In this tutorial, you’ll develop an application that integrates data from a Raspberry Pi (including other options that you’ll choose. For example, 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. We’ll walk you through the following steps:
1. Generate an Application Key
2. Create a Thing
3. Set Up the Raspberry Pi
4. Hook Up the Sensors (Optional)
5. Copy Scripts to the Raspberry Pi (Optional)
6. Create a Project
7. Add a 3D Model to the Experience
8. Add a ThingMark
9. Add a 3D Label
10. Add 2D Widgets
11. Name the Experience
12. Publish the Experience
13. View the Experience in Vuforia View
