Want to on or off the physical robotic arm from the digital twin 3D scene

RAJBHAR, SUSHANT 0 Reputation points

I am pushing my physical robotic arm data to the digital twin through IOT hub and azure functions. I also integrated the digital twin with the 3D scenes and I would able to view the data in it. Now, my requirement is I should be able to on or off the bot using the digital twin. I would like to know is it feasible? If yes, then explain it in brief and provide documentation if any.

    welcome to this moderated Azure community forum.

    The Azure Digitial Twins environment does not support DTDL commands (yet).

    Controlling hardware can be achived easily via a second channel:

    device->iot hub -> 3d Scene -> 3d Scene URL widget -> Website call -> direct method call -> IoT Hub -> device

    Just build your controlling logic (a direct method call on the iot hub?) in a website, possible secured by the same AAD accounts users use for your 3D Scenes studio.

    Then make use of the URL widget so a user can click on it and execute the action url directly of executes it via a landing space.
