The Department of IT conducted a series of workshops for IT and Math faculty of ACT on ‘IoT - Hands on with Real Devices’, facilitated by Ms. Tamil Arasi. The workshop was conducted in two parts. Part 1 was held on 23 October 2019, Wednesday and Part II was held on 7 November 2019, Thursday.
In Part 1 of the workshop, the participants were given an introduction to the real world of IoT through a demonstration of the components and an explanation providing fundamental knowledge about the same. The Arduino software was also explained. The participants were arranged in groups and IoT components were distributed to each group. Later, they were guided using circuit diagrams indicating connections and finally an interfacing the components with Arduino was done.
In Part II, the participants were given another set of experiments which involved sensors. The group performed the activity as per the described procedures.
Both the sessions of the workshop were found to be informative, relevant and extremely interesting.
