San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This is our quarterly event where you get a chance to present your IoT ideas or give demos of what you have built. If you have not yet started tinkering with IoT, this is the platform to get started. Network and collaborate with other engineers.
The following demos are scheduled for the event:
Paul has invented Touché, a Braille display machine. This brings the Braille interface in electro-mechanical form to the visually impaired and potentially opens up entire libraries to them. Paul will show the many models that led up to the machine in its current form. Engineers will find it interesting to learn how he solved difficult challenges in the machine's design and construction. The machine is currently being productized by Sapient Nitro.
How would you like to build your own mechanical keyboard? By now, we are used to open source software. Lately, open source hardware is catching on fast. Abhas will talk specifically on the topic of open source keyboards. You can program the keyboard in any way you want because the firmware is under your control. You can customize key layouts, choose your favourite colours and select different types of mechanical keys. This talk will give you the necessary basics to start making your own keyboard.
Microsoft Azure is getting a lot of traction lately despite the competition from AWS and GCP. While Azure has lots of components, IoT Hub is designed specifically for handling IoT data at scale. Sudhir will lead us through the key concepts of IoT Hub and how easily we can integrate it into our IoT data flows.
One connectivity technology that's got good potential in IoT is BLE. Honey will talk about BlueBee, a BLE development board that's based on Nordic SoC. Engineers will appreciate the good things about this board. In particular, many pins have been brought out for debugging purpose. The talk will include a demo of basic usage and showcase a couple of applications using BlueBee.
IoT is more than just hardware. In this talk, Arvind will share some useful pointers about data visualization. While R will be used to do the visualization, the talk is more generic. It will be about the process of visualization including exploratory analysis, data fusion, choice of colours, and so on. In particular, the talk will be about making sense of data collected from Rio Olympics 2016.
When & Where
Indian Engineering Design Forum
Indian Engineering Design Forum (IEDF) was established to encourage innovation in engineering design for the Indian context. It is a platform that facilitates young and experienced engineers to connect, collaborate and innovate. Being committed to education, the forum gives due importance to career growth and self-development. Polytechnic students, engineering undergraduates and working professionals will benefit directly from the forum's activities. The forum's advisory board of experienced and eminent engineers will offer technical and career guidance.
IEDF website showcases design trends, news and events from around the world. It includes directories of engineering colleges, societies and regulatory bodies. Blog section contain original articles contributed by members.
Membership is free for all.
