    Afternoon Hands-on Workshops (format: title, leader, description)

    Indoor positioning

    Leader: Comtech

    Description: Determining the position of a device through GPS is great but it is not always an option. Modules can be expensive, power hungry, and only works outdoors. This workshop introduces alternative positioning methods and gives a practical introduction to indoor positioning through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy.

    Bluetooth Low EnergyX

    Leader: Austin Blackstone, Arm

    Description: It's estimated that in 2018 around 1 billion Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices will ship. That's an unbelievable number! Interested in being part of this massive market and want to learn how to develop BLE devices, join us at this workshop. This workshop will cover the basics of BLE and how to use Mbed OS to develop BLE applications.

    Introduction to LTE


    Leader: Avnet

    Description: Cellular connectivity works almost everywhere and has great range, but is also power hungry and is not always a good fit for IoT devices. Not anymore, LTE Cat-M1 is an optimized version of LTE specifically for IoT devices, offering great range, improved power consumption, and a data-rate much higher than competing IoT networks. This workshops lets you build your first LTE Cat-M1 device.

    Introduction to Data Science

    Leader: Takuya Kitazawa, Treasure Data

    Description: Gathering vasts amount of data is only part of what the Internet of Things is. How do you do something useful with all that data? This workshop introduces you to data acquisition, visualization, and running machine learning models on big data sets.

    Using LoRaWAN with The Things Network

    Leader: Johan Stokking, The Things Network

    Description: LoRaWAN is a networking technology that combines kilometers of range with very low power consumption, which is a perfect fit for IoT devices. And because it's operating in the unlicensed spectrum everyone can set up a network. This workshop introduces you to the worldwide community driven by The Things Network, and shows how to build and connect LoRaWAN devices.

    Introduction to the Mbed simulator

    Leader: Jan Jongboom, Arm

    Description: The feedback loop when developing IoT devices is slow. It requires compilation, flashing, and getting the device back into the state that you were testing. In addition, it always requires hardware, which is not always practical. Wouldn't it be great if you could test the software on a computer first? This workshop introduces you to the experimental online Mbed simulator and shows how to dramatically shorten your feedback loop.
