In a nutshell

The summer school is organized in three parts:

  • The first part consists in an introduction about Digital Fabrication, what is the Internet of Things, what are the applications and what technologies are used.
  • The second part is about building a device, an air and energy monitoring hardware from open source hardware and software. This device will connect to a LoRa network deployed for the summer school, and the goal is to accumulate and analyze data from within the conference and beyond.
    • Then you will group in teams of two and build a cool smart device with lots of sensing capabilities.
    • We will develop Python software to access the sensors and actuators.
    • Then we will work on the LoRa network connection that will allow you to carry your device around in St. Malo and do some measurements on the road. You will develop your own communication protocol to optimize battery usage, data accuracy, and more.
    • If you are more in to data analytics, you will work on the challenge to get interesting insights from combining and processing the data from the other teams. You will be able to push your results to the other group's devices and to a large info screen in the conference.
    • On Friday we will have a slot in the conference where
  • The third part of the summer school is the participation to the international conference Adhoc Now, especially the invited keynote speaker.

We are looking forward to working with you on the exciting challenges!
