Using Azure Percept to detecting room occupancy

During current times, room occupancy is top of mind for many businesses to ensure everyone's safety. Microsoft MVP, Goran Vuksic, shares a great Azure Percept use case to address the room occupancy opportunity. 




Harnessing the Azure Percept DK and its camera, Goran can detect people in a room, upload data to Azure IoT Hub and stream it using an Azure Stream Analytics job into a Power BI dataset to offer a nice visualization in a Power BI report.
