What is this course about?

Internet of Things, or IoT in short, is the internetworking of physical devices like sensors, motors or simply a smart device and linking them to cloud, so as to get updates remotely from almost anywhere. IoT has promising applications for smart homes, wearable devices, smart cities, connected cars and more.

This course introduces you to the amazing world of IoT and its fascinating applications. Using an Arduino board and an LDR sensor, you will develop an electronic device that automatically switches the street light ON and OFF based on the amount of sunlight present. This is one of the key components of smart cities where energy will be used very efficiently by turning the streetlights ON and OFF at the right time as needed. The system will have an LDR sensor that detects the light intensity continuously and sends data to the Arduino. The data will be sent to the cloud for storage and analysis where reports can be generated to show the duration when lights are ON, the amount of power consumed and saved.

Apart from gaining practical skills on Internet of Things technology, you will also learn about Arduino, Arduino programming, interfacing sensors with Arduino and calibrating them by doing this course.
