FREE IOT Workshop (From Concept To Implementation) – CCWC

2:15pm – 3:30pm & 4.00pm to 5.00pmWednesday, 10th January 2018

IEEE CCWC 2018 which will provide an opportunity for researchers, educators and students to discuss and exchange ideas on issues, trends, and developments in Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication. The organizing committee has graciously offered to provide 100 Student, on a first-come, first-served basis, with a FREE one day Workshop to promote academic projects in IOT among enthusiastic students.

The Workshop Chair will be Prof. Dr. Indraneel Mukhopadhyay & Prof. Dr. Himadri Nath Saha  of the Institute of Engineering and Management.The Workshop will cover the following topics: 1) IoT using Raspberry Pi 3  2)IoT using Arduino.

The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure.

Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of about 30 billion objects by 2020. It is also estimated that the global market value of IoT will reach $7.1 trillion by 2020.

The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.

“Things”, in the IoT sense, can refer to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, cameras streaming live feeds of wild animals in coastal waters, automobiles with built-in sensors, DNA analysis devices for environmental/food/pathogen monitoring, or field operation devices that assist firefighters in search and rescue operations.Legal scholars suggest regarding “things” as an “inextricable mixture of hardware, software, data and service”.
