Internet of things (IoT) or Internet of everything (IoE) is a contemporary and interdisciplinary engineering topic. It is a technology with vast market potential over the coming decades. IoT end-to-end design involves competence in wireless communication, software and analytics amongst other skills. It is also a technology which affects every vertical be it a common light bulb or a complex aircraft. This is a tutorial style workshop to introduce the participant to the vast potential of IoT technology. Engineers/computer scientists/professionals are likely to encounter IOT in the near-term and our goal is to equip people to navigate this space.

There will be also demos to help the participants appreciate the nuances of IoT including remote power control and remote monitoring of parameters like temperature/soil moisture.The various elements that went into the design of such systems will be explained.
