The internet of things (IoT) has gained prominence with the ever increasing connected devices and sensors systems. And thanks to the advancement of fabrication technology which has now made wearable devices integral part of our daily life.

This beginner-level course is going to cover an introduction to various building blocks of a typical IoT embedded system. Throughout the workshop, there would be a lot of thrust on good industrial practices and engineering fundamentals which lead to first-time success of any product.

The following topics would be covered:

  • Sensors and calibration
  • Power sources, batteries
  • Designing with micro-controller
  • Basic digital arithmetic
  • Communication protocols
  • Application interface (Python)
  • Cloud computations, data analytics

There will be extensive lab sessions to supplement the classroom discussions. A commercially available innovative wearable IoT sensor, oblu, would be used as a case study in the classroom and also for lab exercises.

After going through this workshop, you will be in a position to appreciate working of state-of-the-art IoT gadgets and would gain enough insight to build such an IoT embedded system on your own.
