If you have a sample that you would like to be tested to understand exactly what it consists of, you will need to capture spectral data.
You have the option of taking a picture with a multi-spectral camera or take a reading/scan with a spectrometer of any object. In either case, the spectral data is automatically uploaded to the Stream Analytics Engine through the Cloud Connect electronics. for analysis to begin.
For the hardware available through Stream, Cloud Connect is built right in and will link to the Stream Analytics Engine automatically.
