Industrial IOT

With this workshop you will be introduced with the amazing world of IOT and its thrilling applications. Using Arduino development board and other required electronics components, you will develop an electronic device that streams temperature and humidity data over the internet. You can program the system in such a way that say whenever the temperature exceeds a certain limit, the device can automatically generate a tweet. As well as a module will also be develop to control home appliances using the Wifi network available.

Prerequisites: –
