IoT is an evolving area. The purpose of the workshop is to present a current technological snapshot. The architectures, protocols, processors as well as sensors and actuators in use today are looked into.Free source development tools introduced in an earlier lecture will be further discussed in the context of the overall ecosystem. A simple demo application and its development will be taken up to illustrate the typical development process. The technology overview will bring out the areas that are changing,so that participants have a complete picture of the situation and exactly how it is going to change over the future.

Course Contents:
Generally IoT systems involve sensors & actuators at the lowest level with a processor managing the local processing. The things/objects housing these structures need to communicate both ways through the internet cloud. Current technology, significant trends and standardization activities in these areas along with appropriate free source development tools will be covered.

Benefits/ Takeaways
Like many evolving technological advancements it is difficult to get a complete picture. Most often the one gets a fragmented view of the landscape. It is essential for future developers and technology managers to get a good feel of the current scenario and how that is likely to change.

Who Should Attend
Developers, development managers as well as business development people could benefit from this workshop.

No significant prerequisites are required. Exposure to embedded technology will be an advantage

Delivery Method
Detailed and modular and interactive presentations on the significant areas. The demo will illustrate important development steps through an application running on a free-source hardware (Raspberry Pi) being controlled through the Internet.


3 to 4 hours
