I am currently experimenting with IoT using a Raspberry pi 3 and Windows IoT core. I have orded the sensors but in the meantime I am simulating them by using hard codes values. This is all for a project that we are designing. I am looking for a dashboard where I can pass the data from the pi through an API to a dashboard using C#. The dashboard must be able to map multiple pi locations on a map and be able to send alerts when a pi gets disconnected. This is a little customized but I am pretty sure there is something available and any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Why does it have to be in c#? – hardillb Nov 26 '20 at 14:35

    Simple enough to code. Each Pi sends a "heartbeat" to a central server every X seconds/minutes. When no heartbeat is received update the map; when a heartbeat is received from a previously dead Pi, update the map. Personally, I would make this browser based, rather than desktop app (and use LeafletJS & Open Street Map, rather than Google Maps). If it must be C#, then ask us on Software Recommendations for a C# mapping library. Great question (+1 & starred as favo(u)rite). – Mawg says reinstate Monica Nov 27 '20 at 11:41

    @mawg thank you so much for the response. I have managed to find an Azure solution that perfectly fits my needs. The solution is called IoT Central. You should check it out. – user9422677 Dec 1 '20 at 4:14
  • Congratulations! I imagine that that would be Iot Central. You can post that as an answer, explaining why you chose it (and accept your own answer), which will help others who read this question in future. That seems like the best for you. Others, who prefer a browser based solution, might go with Node-RED – Mawg says reinstate Monica Dec 1 '20 at 8:53
