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 water flow sensor, you will develop an electronic device that can detect the flow of water and record the volume of water that flows through the pipe for a given period of time. The data is then sent to the cloud for storage and analysis. By placing this system in a smart building, we will be able to collect and analyse the water usage patterns of the residents and save a lot of water from wastage.
Apart from gaining practical skills on Internet of Things technology, you will learn about the Arduino Architecture, Arduino Programming, Calibration of Flow Sensors by doing this project based course. The program can also be modified to send an email alert or tweet whenever water flow crosses a certain threshold.
