This workshop introduces the fundamentals of Internet of Things (IoT) and how one can implement for Smart Cities. The course covers infrastructure related architecture, technologies and principles behind IoT for designing an ideal Smart City. The workshop will also discuss about building blocks for Smart City and share few of the use cases as well as Smart City framework presented during Global City Team Challenge hosted by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

What You Will Learn:

  • Overview of IoT domain related to Hardware, Operating systems and Web IoT protocols.
  • Learn building blocks and schematic of IoT such as sensors, hardware and cloud components.
  • Learn various cloud IoT platforms available such as AWS IoT, IBM-Bluemix and Microsoft Azure.
  • How to design and develop Smart City applications.

Workshop Outcomes: At the end of this course, attendees will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Understand what IoT technologies are used for today, and what is required in certain scenarios.
  • Understand the types of technologies that are available and in use today and can be utilized to implement IoT solutions.
  • Demonstrate on understanding of Smart City architecture, development and deployment.
  • Design an end-to-end Smart City project with all required components.
  • Discuss analytics, flowcharts for a Smart City.

Full Workshop Description:
This course introduces the design principles of the Internet of Things (IoT) and their device along with infrastructure-related architectures, technologies and protocol frameworks that aimed at enabling the formation of highly distributed and ubiquitous networks for Smart City with seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices.

Participants will learn to design and analyze Smart City application. The learning model includes sensors, hardware platform and cloud. Sensors related to Smart City such as Environmental Monitoring, e-Government, Waste Management, Flood Monitoring, Smart City Lights(LED), Smart Power Grid, Smart Parking, Smart Hospital, Smart Agriculture, etc., The workshop describes the block diagram, schematic and implementation plans. It also discusses Bill of Materials required to build a Smart City. The course outlines the usage of Cloud platform such as AWS IoT, IBM Bluemix and Microsoft Azure.

The course will also introduce technologies and protocols at the service along with application layers which enables the integration of embedded devices in web-based distributed applications. Participants will get the notions for service creation, customization, execution and deployment in distributed IoT heterogeneous environments.

Who Should Attend:
The IoT workshop is designed to help City officials, Municipality, Smart City project researchers, Cloud data scientist and Business manager who are planning to adopt and deploy Smart City. The workshops also helps for startups, medium and large companies to learn the current trend, technologies and implementation strategy for Smart City.
