Summary

You should now be able to connect IBM Bluemix to the Raspberry Pi by using the Watson IoT Platform. You also know how to add a RaspCam camera to the Raspberry Pi to take pictures and then send them to the Cloudant database on Bluemix for storage, and you know how to analyze those pictures by using the Watson Visual Recognition service.

You might try adding a Twilio node to the Node-RED flow on Bluemix to send the text results of the Watson Visual Recognition service to your mobile phone.

Follow the next lab to learn how to manage your IoT application from a mobile device in Swift and optionally how to connect a Watson-enabled Raspberry Pi to one of the most popular robot platforms: iRobot Create2.
