A Three-day workshop on Embedded systems (IOT) Phase I was organised by the department of ECE in association with APSSDC in SSE from 5th to 7th October 2018.
The ECE department in association with Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation conducted a three days event “Hands On workshop on Embedded Systems (IOT) fundamentals for basic Microcontroller 8051 and Arduino” 5th to 7th October 2018 .This program is targeted to Electronics students with some knowledge on Embedded Systems Concepts and Microcontrollers. This course is based on the Arduino Nano board and its implementation using Arduino IDE.
The basic objective of the program is
• To gain the Hands-on workshop
• To improve the Ideas on ES projects
• To enhance Employ ability Skills
Day 1:Embedded Systems
An embedded system is some combination of computer hardware and software, either fixed in capability or programmable, that is designed for a specific function or for specific functions within a larger system. Industrial machines, agricultural and process industry devices, automobiles, medical equipment, cameras, household appliances, airplanes, vending machines and toys as well as mobile devices are all possible locations for an embedded system.” On first day few programs were implemented with the Keil software like LED display , Blinking of LEDs, Seven segment display etc
Arduino is an open source computer hardware and software company, project, and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the physical world” On the second the following contents are discussed with hands on experience • Arduino Programming • Introduction to Digital Pins & Inputs- LED Based Projects. • Interfacing of switches with Arduino • LCD Based Projects • Motor Based Projects
Day 3:Sensor based projects
The third day provides better view on programming aspects of Arduino Microcontrollers. Students actively Participated in this session. The following Projects are implemented using Arduino
• Interfacing of sensors with Arduino- LDR,
• Interfacing of sensors with Arduino- Humidity sensor,
• Interfacing of sensors with Arduino- IR sensor,
• Interfacing of sensors with Arduino- Ultrasonic sensor
• Interfacing of RGB LED with Bluetooth
