The Internet of Things remains one of the hot topics of the day as it starts to come good on its promise to transform businesses and homes, with more and more devices gaining connectivity. Earlier this year, Gartner estimated that this year up to 8.4 billion ‘things’ will be connected with total spending reaching almost $2 trillion in 2017. By 2020, the estimate is for 20.4 billion devices to be connected.
Many, therefore, are keen to get involved in this lucrative new industry but until you get hands-on with creating an actual working IoT product, the IoT can still seem as more of a buzzword rather than a reality. If you’re a software designer or developer looking to put some meat on the IoT bones then you’ll want to sign up for our upcoming workshop, ‘Building an IoT Smart Monitoring Solution – from Sensors to Cloud to Mobile’.
The workshop will be based in Imagination’s Santa Clara offices and will take place on the 31 May 2017 – go here now to register.
During the workshop, you’ll be using a mikroBUS motion sensor stacked on top of a Medium One MIPS-based Microchip IoT Ethernet Monitoring kit – an end-to-end IoT solution in a box that will enable you to easily connect sensors to the Cloud within minutes and start processing sensor data in real-time.
Voice control is rapidly becoming the new norm for interacting with devices, and during the session, you’ll even learn how to use an Amazon Echo speaker to control your device.
What’s more, after the event, you’ll be able to purchase the kit -including a mikroBus motion sensor, worth $112, for only $45, so you’ll be able to take what you’ve learned and take your IoT prototype solution to the next level.
