On March 30th, Citilab will hold the free session ‘IoT: how to make smart objects’, a 4-hour session to publicize the Internet of Things, a concept of our increasingly digital world. Registration is open.
IoT are the acronyms of Internet of Things, an idea that refers to the progressive implantation of technology in our daily lives, the digitization of everyday life and the interconnection between objects. A technological reality is more palpable than the need for the participation of all the citizens for their more social application and, therefore, needs to be explained so that everyone can know it and apply it to their daily lives.
So, in this day we will be able to know the possibilities of entering the house through an application of the mobile or feeding the dog at a distance through an intelligent dining room; all this among many other curious and useful cases in the face of a much closer future than we think. In this way, we can approach this concept in an understandable way and we can experiment with our own hands this technology.
In addition to offering an introduction to the Internet of Things, it will also present the LORA connectivity network deployed in Cornellà de Llobregat and the Whitecat ecosystem, which consists of hardware and free software, which allows the programming of objects for to the IoT and that will be used during the practical part of the session.
