The IoT Centre at CENSIS helps companies overcome many of the challenges they face in product development and allow them to fast-track the development of IoT products and services. In addition to a demonstration area and project development space, we offer regular technology seminars with high profile vendors to provide advice and guidance on how best to use their products to generate greater business efficiencies.
Aims and Objectives
This workshop focuses on the Sigfox network for non-commercial use, R&D and PoCs/PoVs. SMEs can use the Sigfox network for free for up to 100 devices for one year with no commercial commitment required.
You’ll be introduced to LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) technologies and the simplicity of connecting devices to a real world live network. You will learn how to create a sensor device and connect this to the cloud in just a few minutes, so that data can be logged immediately with zero commercial or technical barriers to success. The day will include demonstration and hands-on practical work, and will include how to register a Sigfox account, obtain device subscriptions, find tutorials and coverage maps and get access to user forums.
At the end of the day, you will have the skills you need to start your own development with this technology.
Who Should Attend?
The workshop is aimed at experienced Design Engineers, Technical Managers and Solution Architects, keeping them up-to-date with the latest technical developments around connected devices and IoT. Regrettably the workshop is not suitable for current undergraduates or new graduates/students.
Just bring your own WiFi enabled laptop. The session will require an up-to-date Chrome browser and USB port. The delegates will need to install the Arduino dev environment software during the session. Any further joining instructions will be sent to you before the day.
