The Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering Summer School on the Internet of Things will take place in University of Limerick, Ireland, in July 2018. The summer schools provide a unique opportunity for students to learn about fundamental and state-of-the-art technology and to mingle with Industry Experts.
The 2018 summer school will approach the broad field of the Internet of Things (IoT) by considering sensors, embedded systems, wireless technologies, networks and protocols, distributed computations, ubiquitous computing, interaction in smart environments, and privacy and security concepts. The students will work on one of 7 different projects, each focussing on a different IoT application area. This includes laboratory time for practical experiments with sensor-based devices, which will be provided for each student.
The Summer School is a two-week introduction to the core technology topics needed to support the Internet of Things. On completion, the student will be well placed to play a part in this emerging technology ecosystem. At the end of the school, each group will present their concept project and how it relates to the core IoT concepts.
The School comprises a series of morning technical presentations. In the afternoons there will be a series of practical laboratory-based IoT projects. The projects will use the Diligent Analog Discovery 2, Arduino, Galileo Intel Quark Application Processor, Android, bluemix, and other relevant IoT support technologies. The school will begin with and be complemented by an industrial seminar, “The Marconi Seminar” from Ireland-based International companies: Analog Devices, Intel, Dell, Rapid7, IBM, Jaguar/Land Rover, Ceva Inc, EpiSensor etc. These companies will examine topics such as Energy Harvesting, Sensors, Business applications, Data Analytics etc.
