Description

#Cloud #IoT #Drone

How do you bridge the world of the cloud and autonomous robots, leveraging Cloud Native applications like machine learning, scheduling, serverless functions, and logging to build a control plane for autonomous drones? This talk answers this question by examining the composition of Selfie Drone. Selfie Drone is an autonomous cloud-connected drone for taking selfies; the concept is to simplify and improve the capabilities of an IoT device by moving the computational aspects to the cloud. We will investigate how Cloud Native applications like Prometheus, TensorFlow, and Nats.io, and patterns such as event-driven architecture, and zero-trust security can be leveraged to build a control plane for an autonomous drone. Through a combination of theory, and practical demonstration we will examine the good the bad and the ugly aspects of when the two worlds of cloud and robots meet.
