ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering was started in the academic year 1999 – 2000. This discipline is a unique, featuring courses of both Computer Science Engineering and Electronics Engineering The department has eminent faculty from both areas to equip the students with the current technological trends. The Department in collaboration with CENTRE FOR DEVELEOPMENT OF ADVANCED COMPUTING (CDAC) - BANGLORE have set up an "Excellence Centre -Internet of Things" (IoT) for taking up research activities which enables the researchers and students to explore different aspects useful to the society and develop applications related to smart cities in IoT field . The Department has a well equipped Embedded Systems Lab and a Research and Development wing. Apart from this, the department also has a computer centre that is equipped with state-of-art computer system. The Department stands tall with the latest achievements made by the students in research and innovation. Active Research is going on in Embedded Systems, Sensor Networks and Internet of Things.
AIM AND SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging technology area in recent years. Market research has predicted that by 2020, more than 50 billion smart devices will be deployed and connected to Internet, serving people anytime and anywhere. New devices have been developed using IoT technologies, for sensing and collecting information to understand user needs, and for composing and deploying services to make lives easier. There are many application domains that IoT technology can provide very useful services, such as healthcare, transportation, infrastructure and home.
This workshop aims to bring together people from both academia and industry to discuss promising new technologies and to highlight open research challenges In IoT. The workshop will be covering basic concepts of programming in embedded things using Arduino / Raspberry Pi.
