Sensors give us a wealth of information. But how do we store the information and how do we make it available in a readable way?
In this session, I will show you how you can send the sensor data to an InfluxDB data storage with a Spring Boot application. InfluxDB is a time series database which is a perfect fit to store sensor data. It’s possible to send the data by making a REST call to InfluxDB or by using the Java InfluxDB client.
The example (including a live demo) is based on a Raspberry Pi with the following sensors:
After the sensor data is stored we make it available in a nice graphical way. Therefore we use the Grafana and Chronograf dashboards running in Docker containers.
