This project is to use Amazon Web services Internet of thing core platform to deploy individual complicated functions and send and retrieve data, eventually, demonstrating computing heavy workloads with a single-chip computer.


  • Develop serverless computing functions, e.g., image recognitions
  • Deploy functions to AWS Lambda
  • Develop a simple client—the “button”—at the Raspberry Pi
  • Activate the functions deployed at AWS Lambda by pressing the “button”
  • Develop simple code handling the results returned from AWS Lambda functions
Serverless architecture.
