Everything is connected. Your coffee machine can stream music, your refrigerator can remind your car to pick up groceries, and your sprinkler systems check weather data before watering your lawn. We are living in an era in human history where the cheapest computer costs $9 and everyday devices are increasingly smart. The Internet of Things has become one of the hottest topics in tech and everyone from appliance manufacturers to car companies has jumped on the bandwagon. Do you want to help build the smart products of the future, or develop an embedded system for BMW?
In Level 3 of Engineering and Entrepreneurship we’ll continue building programmable gadgets, but with an increased focus on connectedness. Students will learn the fundamentals of computer networking, build smart gadgets that talk over the internet, and develop companion applications to control their creations. This is a perfect class for students interested in developing hands-on expertise in designing and developing for the Internet of Things.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects. Introduced in 2005, the Arduino platform was designed to provide an inexpensive and easy way for hobbyists, students and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators.
