Microsoft Innovation Center Torino, Arrow and BEPS Engineering developed a proof-of-concept (POC) solution for public advertisements: the Kinect-Azure POC, an Intelligent Systems case study.
The current solution is focused on a real estate scenario, but the same technologies can be applied in different application domains.
The system is composed by three elements:
- A *Kinect for Windows*
sensor which enables a Natural User Experience by means of simple hand and body gestures
- A *Windows
Embedded*-powered device that runs the domain-specific application, manages the Kinect device and connects to the Cloud
- A powerful and flexible cloud
backend, leveraging the Windows Azure infrastructure, which manages application contents and enables Business Intelligent analysis.
A short demo video of the working solution is available on YouTube.
