The recent trends in technology which is considered to be the next big thing post Internet revolution is seen worldwide in the domain of Internet of Things (IoT). This is the technology wherein the devices are made intelligent and will participate wisely in the process and procedures building smarter planet. IoT is the talk of the town and is the most happening buzz word. The explosive growth of the “Internet of Things” is changing our world and the rapid drop in price for typical IoT components is allowing people to innovate new designs and products at home. This workshop will be conducted in 8 weeks spread over Autumn and Spring term of session 2015-16.

Learning Outcome of Workshop #1:-


  • The participants will design, build and test a micro controller-based embedded system.
  • The participants will use an Arduino with several sensors and actuators; capture, visualize and analyse data, and write a final report.
  • The focus of your project will be to design the system so that it can be built on a low-cost budget for a real-world application.
  • The project will include some core requirements, but leave room for your creativity in how you approach the project. In the end, you will produce a unique final project, suitable for showcasing to future potential, may lead to patenting and product.
