Another highlight of TIMSCDR’s E Week celebration was a four day workshop for students that would help them develop new innovative inventions by leveraging Internet of Things (IoT), one of the hottest topics in the industry.
The session started with an overview of IoT, its applications and future prospects. The students were divided into small groups – each group was supervised by a professor and was provided a special kit that consists of an Arduino board, a Raspberry Pi board, jumper wires, breadboard, resistors, LEDs, temperature sensors, motion sensors and other electronic components necessary for learning the concept of IoT. Each component and its working was explained to the group, followed by a demonstration for assembling the kit.
The students were even made to compile, upload, and run several simple programs using the programmable circuit boards.
