The 2022 edition of the Summer School Enabling Technologies for Industrial Internet of Things (ET-I2oT 2022) is organized to provide 6 ECTS (about 52 hours of front lessons) in the fields of Electronics, RFID, Sensors, Networking, Web of Things, SW for IoT, Computer Engineering, targeting an audience of Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.
Both HW and SW aspects of IoT will be presented and discussed during the school.
Lessons will be held in English at the Meeting Room of the Department of Information Engineering (DII), via G. Caruso 16, Pisa, Italy.
The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform).

Lessons will be held from 20 to 27 of July 2022 at the Aula Magna of the School of Engineering, University of Pisa, exploiting all facilities available in terms of conference rooms and labs. The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform). The social language will be English.

Lecturers from University of Pisa, University of Kiel, University Grenoble Alpes.

The exam will consist in completing a technical report, starting from one of the subject of the course and integrated with data and infos from student experience, assigned the last day of the course. The technical report should be completed within 2 months after the course (and in any case within 30 September 2022), to have the exam registered with a final mark.

Course leader

Prof. Sergio Saponara

Target group

Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Management) disciplines, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry

Course aim

The summer school provides theoretical and practical lessons about recent advances in enabling technologies for electronics, electromagnetics, future wireless transceivers and wireless sensor networks, systems, edge and cloud computing, networks in scenarios such as IoT, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical-Systems (CPS), autonomous vehicles, robots.

Wireless circuits and systems and internet technology are becoming pervasive in many applications elds such as Industry4.0 (e.g. RFID, additive manufacturing, smart manufacturing), vehicle industry (e.g. connected cars, advanced driver assistance systems, V2V and V2I wireless communications, radar, lidar), automation in industrial or domotic scenarios (e.g. wireless sensor and actuator networks), health&wellness (e.g. wireless wearable sensing and biomedical circuits), robots.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ECTS. Indeed, the school has got already an accreditation at European level being part of the network of European Summer Schools. The school in the past 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions hosted about 40 students/year, from 4 continents (Europe, America, Asia, Africa) with invited speakers like Federico Faggin, the "father of the microprocessor", Franco Maloberti, IEEE CAS society President, Lorenzo Fioramonti, past Minister for University and Research.

The teaching material has been published in the IEEE book "Enabling Technologies for the Internet of Things: Wireless Circuits, Systems and Networks", 2018, Editor: Sergio Saponara, University of Pisa, Italy, ISBN: 9788793609747

The 2022 program will be similar to the 2021 program available at https://www.dii.unipi.it/summer-school-enablig-technologies-iot
