Last month, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) offered a training on scientific applications for the Internet of Things.
Not only the attendance was great -over 30 attendees from 25 different countries-, but also the literature produced for the course. In fact, the ICTP released a booklet with everything you need to know to deploy wireless sensor networks using the latest IoT technologies:
- Introduction to IoT
- Introduction to IPv6
- Contiki OS introduction
- Analogue and digital sensors
- Wireless basics
- UDP and TCP over multi-hop mesh networks
- MQTT, CoAP and RESTFull protocols
- Network Simulation using Cooja
- End-to-end IPv6 applications: connecting to IoT cloud platforms (Ubidots)
We’re proud to share the fact that ICTP’s Wireless Lab has been a Ubidots customer for a while, and therefore used Ubidots as the official IoT platform for the training.
During the training, the participants also had the chance to hack different projects, among them a Solar Eclipse Tracker.
We look forward to enabling more academic projects and trainings around the world! Keep them coming and earn free credits towards your next project!
