A value added course on “IoT Programming using Raspberry Pi and Intel Edison Boards” was conducted by the Department of MCA for the students of Third Year MCA from 2nd July 2018 to 6th July 2018.
The objectives of the course were to introduce the students to the core concepts of Internet of Things (IoT), make them understand the building blocks &characteristics of IoT and to explain the role & scope of smart sensors for ensuring convergence of technologies.
The course covered various topics starting from the basics of IoT, different operating systems used on IoT, basics of the different programming languages related to IoT and more. The students were also given hands on training during the practical sessions, where the students experienced and understood how to use the different boards such as Raspberry Pi and Intel Edison Boards. The students also performed simple programs using different components and sensors during the practical sessions. The course concluded with a session on how to align their IoT Projects with research papers.
