Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, will organize an IoT Bootcamp from December 2019- January 2020.
The Bootcamp is designed for both beginners and expert level of IoT enthusiasts. It focuses on selecting the right platform [Arduino, R-Pi, PSoC] for an IoT application, with an application-oriented hands-on exercise on Hardware, Software, Sensor system and Communication technologies.
- Differences between Arduino, Raspberry-Pi and PSoC
- How to choose the right embedded board and design an optimum architecture for your application
- Build your own IoT system for a real world application with the hands-on training.
Eligibility: Basic programming knowledge
