Internet of Things (IoT) with ARM-based Microcontrollers
15.04.2016, 13:00-20:00; 13.05.2016, 13:00-20:00
3W04 Seminar Room, ICT Building (2nd floor), Technikerstraße 21a, Innsbruck
An increasing number of every-day consumer products not only contain a micro-controller but they are also connected
to the Internet. Engineers designing IoT devices need skills from the embedded world as well as from Web/Internet
environment. Every time disciplines merge exciting developments are unleashed. In this course you will learn about
ARM-based microprocessors (and the Cortex M family in particular), how to program these processors, work with sensors,
to communicate with other devices using Bluetooth Smart (a low-power radio technology), and Internet technologies used
in IoT deployments. This course combines theoretical know-how with hands-on experience. The necessary hardware will be
provided by ARM.
Structure: Presentation, Exercises with laptops
Maximal number of participants: 20
Required Skills: Computer programming course in any language. We will use C (and maybe C++) for our examples. No electronics skills are assumed. The seminar will be more beneficial to you if you study computer science.
Required Equipment: Laptop (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) with privileges to install software
