Azure Maps Weather services (https://aka.ms/iotshow/AzureMapsWeatherService) add a new layer of real-time, location-aware information to Azure Maps portfolio of native Azure geospatial services.

Bringing Weather Services to Azure Maps means IoT developers have a simple means of integrating highly dynamic, real-time, historic and forecasted weather data and visualizations into their applications through their existing Azure subscriptions.

The Weather Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Accuweather. Weather is a critical factor for many scenarios—whether it’s to ensure the safety of mobile assets, model and forecast need for renewable energy, or predict risk and assess claims in the insurance industry.

Outi demonstrates how a few of these APIs can be used to enhance data visualizations with radar and infrared map overlays with an Azure Maps Web SDK, and how call APIs to make weather-based decisions with current and forecast based weather, as well as weather along route.

Even as threats to IoT devices increase, very few of them are being designed with security in mind. Azure Sphere introduces a trusted and secure platform to build software upon, combining the security of open source with Microsoft’s Seven Properties of Highly Secured Devices. Let’s walk through our security model and what it takes to keep a system secure for the next decade. Learn more: https://aka.ms/iotshow/defenseindepth

Azure Sphere is now generally available (http://aka.ms/iotshow/azuresphere), marking an important milestone in Microsoft’s commitment to provide an end-to-end security solution for securing any IoT device.

What is the Azure Sphere security promise and how does it deliver end-to-end security for IoT devices

? We’ll look at the security demands of safety critical equipment and IoT deployments at scale. 

Because of Azure Sphere Security Service, a.k.a. “AS3” (aka.ms/iotshow/azuresphere), Azure Sphere devices are more secure when they’re connected.

Caitie McCaffrey, leading the Azure Sphere Security Service engineering team joins us on the IoT Show to tell us what her team delivers and why device developers should care.

Andon is a methodology originally designed by Toyota in the 80’s to allow responding faster and more efficiently to issues on manufacturing lines.

Skoda is modernizing the methodology to allow operators to respond more quickly to production problems, as well as automatically notify supervisors, leveraging Azure IoT Hub and Office 365.

Stepan Bechynsky joins us on the IoT Show to show how the solution implemented at Skoda works using the “hello world” of IoT demos: a simple button that operators can press to signal problems on a piece of equipment and that integrates into business applications such as Microsoft Teams.

Businesses can now run cloud intelligence directly on IoT devices at the edge managed by Azure IoT Central (https://aka.ms/iotshow/iotedgeiniotcentral).

This new feature helps businesses connect and manage Edge devices, deploy edge software modules, publish insights, and take actions at-scale – all from within IoT Central.

In this episode of the IoT Show, Ranga Vadlamudi, Principal PM in the Azure IoT team joins Olivier to demo how the integration works.

The Vision AI DevKit (https://aka.ms/iotshow/visionaidevkit) is a smart camera device powered by Azure IoT Edge. Equiped with a camera and microphones, it allows developing proof of concept (or even actual) projects implementing advanced image and sound analytics directly on the device.In a previous episode (https://aka.ms/iotshow/185), Mahesh Yadav showed us the unboxing and first time experience with the device.

In this new episode, Mahesh is back to show us how you can train and deploy new AI models on the device in a matter of minutes.
