快速入门:从 Android 设备发送 IoT 遥测数据Quickstart: Send IoT telemetry from an Android device

在本快速入门中,请通过运行在物理或模拟设备上的 Android 应用程序将遥测数据发送到 Azure IoT 中心。In this quickstart, you send telemetry to an Azure IoT Hub from an Android application running on a physical or simulated device. IoT 中心是一项 Azure 服务,用于将大量遥测数据从 IoT 设备引入云中进行存储或处理。IoT Hub is an Azure service that enables you to ingest high volumes of telemetry from your IoT devices into the cloud for storage or processing. 本快速入门使用预先编写的 Android 应用程序来发送遥测数据。This quickstart uses a pre-written Android application to send the telemetry. 遥测数据将通过 Azure CLI 从 IoT 中心读取。The telemetry will be read from the IoT Hub using the Azure CLI. 运行此应用程序前,请先创建 IoT 中心并在中心注册设备。Before you run the application, you create an IoT hub and register a device with the hub.


  • 如果需要,请安装 Azure CLI 来运行 CLI 参考命令。If you prefer, install the Azure CLI to run CLI reference commands.

    • 如果使用的是本地安装,请使用 az login 命令登录到 Azure CLI。If you're using a local installation, sign in to the Azure CLI by using the az login command. 若要完成身份验证过程,请遵循终端中显示的步骤。To finish the authentication process, follow the steps displayed in your terminal. 有关其他登录选项,请参阅登录 Azure CLIFor additional sign-in options, see Sign in with the Azure CLI.

    • 出现提示时,请在首次使用时安装 Azure CLI 扩展。When you're prompted, install Azure CLI extensions on first use. 有关扩展详细信息,请参阅使用 Azure CLI 的扩展For more information about extensions, see Use extensions with the Azure CLI.

    • 运行 az version 以查找安装的版本和依赖库。Run az version to find the version and dependent libraries that are installed. 若要升级到最新版本,请运行 az upgradeTo upgrade to the latest version, run az upgrade.


本文使用最新版本的 Azure IoT 扩展(称为 azure-iot)。This article uses the newest version of the Azure IoT extension, called azure-iot. 旧版本称为 azure-iot-cli-ext。只应同时安装有一个版本。The legacy version is called azure-iot-cli-ext.You should only have one version installed at a time. 可以使用命令 az extension list 来验证当前安装的扩展。You can use the command az extension list to validate the currently installed extensions.

使用 az extension remove --name azure-cli-iot-ext 可删除扩展的旧版本。Use az extension remove --name azure-cli-iot-ext to remove the legacy version of the extension.

使用 az extension add --name azure-iot 可添加扩展的新版本。Use az extension add --name azure-iot to add the new version of the extension.

若要查看已安装了哪些扩展,请使用 az extension listTo see what extensions you have installed, use az extension list.
