What is the Smart Machine with Vibration Monitoring IoT Demo?

The Smart Machine with Vibration monitoring demo is pre-programmed on the board and demonstrates how easy it is to connect a device and sensor to the cloud. The kit shows how a vibration sensor attached to any machine like a regrigerator or a fan can send data to the Medium One cloud here it can be analyzed for vibration levels. Pre-built cloud-based workflows are provided allowing users to create rules and alerts based on the analytics. The kit can be configured and mounted on any machine without the need for any programming.
