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 a DHT sensor, 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 will automatically send an email notification!
In the second project, you will work with a soil moisture sensor, ESP8266 module and an Arduino board to develop a smart irrigation system project which detects the change in moisture level in the soil and controls the flow of water accordingly. You will also develop a Virtuino App to get notifications remotely.
Apart from gaining practical skills on the Internet of Things, by doing this project you will learn about the Arduino Architechure, Arduino Programming, Calibration of Sensors, Virtuino App development etc.
You'll design and develop the following projects
IoT based Weather Monitoring System
Smart Irrigation System using IoT
