Connecting your IoT devices

blended course
when 24 June 2020 - 4 July 2020
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 4 EC
fee EUR 870

The summer school provides theoretical and practical lessons about recent advances in enabling technologies for smart devices leveraging sensors, electronics and future wireless transceivers, systems and networks in scenarios such as IoT, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical-Systems (CPS), autonomous vehicles, robots or UAVs.

Students will discover the various aspects of a smart device, from the sensors themselves to the data processing and transmission. Classical IoT standards will be detailed (BLE, ZigBee...). Long range communications (LoRa, Sigfox, NB-IoT...) will be also investigated.

Practical lessons will consist in a team project whose aim is to develop a prototype for an innovative IoT applications. Each small groups (4 people) will conduct the full project: from the application specifications to a demonstration of their prototype. The prototype will be based on various sensors and wireless transceivers plugged to Arduino motherboards.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam ENSSAT will register the course as an official exam of 3 ECTS.

French lesson courses: some lessons will be organized to give you some introductory basis to the French language and some cultural insights about the Breton culture

Course aim

The "Connecting your IoT devices" Summer School organized by ENSSAT offers a deep-in depth study in the fields of digital electronics, embedded software and networking for IoT.
Both hardware and software aspects of IoT will be presented and discussed during the school, and hands-on practical courses will allow attendees to familiarize with IoT standards. A smart device box including a motherboard, sensors and a wireless transceiver will be offered to each attendee at the end of the Summer School!
You will solve a societal issue to measure human activities supported by a local company Eco-Counter specializing in pedestrian and cyclist counting solutions.
