@Shalini Govinda Nayak Let's start with the Architecture of IoT Central smart inventory management application template to understand the terminology used in the application.
- Set of IoT sensors sending telemetry data to a gateway device
- Gateway devices sending telemetry and aggregated insights to IoT Central
- Data is routed to the desired Azure service for manipulation
- Azure services like ASA or Azure Functions can be used to reformat data streams and send to the desired storage accounts
- Processed data is stored in hot storage for near real-time actions or cold storage for additional insight enhancements that is based on ML or batch analysis.
- Logic Apps can be used to power various business workflows in end-user business applications
RFID tags transmit data about an item through radio waves. RFID tags typically don't have a battery unless specified. Tags receive energy from the radio waves generated by the reader and transmit a signal back toward the RFID reader.
Energy beacon broadcasts packets of data at regular intervals. Beacon data is detected by BLE readers or installed services on smartphones and then transmitting that to the cloud.
RFID & BLE readers:
RFID reader converts the radio waves to a more usable form of data. Information collected from the tags is then stored in local edge server or sent to cloud using JSON-RPC 2.0 over MQTT. BLE reader also known as Access Points (AP) are similar to RFID reader. It is used to detect nearby Bluetooth signals and relay its message to local Azure IoT Edge or cloud using JSON-RPC 2.0 over MQTT. Many readers are capable of reading RFID and beacon signals, and providing additional sensor capability related to temperature, humidity, accelerometer, and gyroscope.
Total Tags is the number of tags exported based on condition.
Regarding your specific query,
Is it possible to have a condition so that I can relate two capabilities.
I am not aware of such condition, could you please explain bit more about the scenario you are looking for so that we can assist you accordingly.
