Let's start from a quick example of what Robonomics is able to do within 5 minutes. Requirements: Metamask extension
To get the weather from sensor on Fuji Mountain, please, open the page of Fuji Weather sensor in Robonomics dApp and follow instructions below.
Here's a walkthrough video:
1. Open the Dapp
In case you don't have MetaMask extension you'll see the picture below. Go to the link provided above and install one.
2. Allow connection to the extension
3. Press "Request current values"
4. Sign a message. No token or ether are needed
5. Wait until the agent collects the data and sends it back
6. Wait until the Dapp downloads the result file from IPFS
7. Look at the weather data on Fuji Mountain
Just now you have broadcasted a demand message and got a result from an autonomous agent! The result file is stored in IPFS, the result message is signed with the agent's private key.
