Action 1: Building Smart Applications in the Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Connecting these embedded devices, including smart objects, is expected to introduce automation in almost every field, while enabling advanced applications such as the Smart Grid. The term “things” in the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a wide variety of devices, such as implanted cardiac monitoring devices, biochip transponders for livestock, cars with integrated sensors, field operation devices that assist firefighters in search and rescue operations. Other examples include smart thermostat systems and Wi-Fi-enabled washing machines/dryers for remote monitoring. Participants will familiarize themselves with these environments and related technologies through workshops, in order to implement small-scale prototype projects.
Learning Outcomes: Participants will acquire knowledge and practical skills related to: IoT and concepts related to Cloud Computing, the use of Arduino for low-cost embedded programming, connecting Arduino to the Internet, and remote programming of Arduino.
Duration: The activity lasts a total of 25 hours, which include theoretical lectures and practical exercises for implementing original projects.
Organization: Collaboratively in teams of two individuals. Eight teams per session.
Support: Throughout the activity, support will be provided by mentors for practical exercises and the implementation of original projects.
