To Commemorate 25 Years of Transforming Education and celebrate Silver jubilee under Academics Activities, The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, MRU organized a 5-Day FDP On ‘Internet Of Things (IoT) and Sensors’. In all 144 participants registered and attended the session. The session had a blend of theory with live working models and projects along with practical hands-on training. The experts from industry and academia were invited to deliver the sessions.
The session began with the blessings of Hon’Vice Chancellor Manav Rachna University Dr. I.K. Bhat, who shared his thoughts on the significance of the theme as in today’s scenario. Keynote speaker, Mr.Arvind Dixit, Director & Chief Executive Officer at Advance Tech India Pvt. Ltd- Chandigarh delivered his talk on ‘Introduction to IoT’. He explained the role of sensors in the Internet of things. Dr. Avinash Rai, Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering, RGPV, explained ‘Applications of WSN in the medical field to enhance data automation systems’. In this session, participants realized the role of wireless sensor networks in IoT applications. He also discussed how genetic algorithms and fuzzy-based decision-making systems helps in decision making within the sensors networks
Mr. KK Singh Yadav, Assistant Director Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) (Govt. of India Enterprises) focused on ‘Recent Protocols in IoT’. In this session, participants were familiarized with various protocols used in IoT like MQTT, CoAP, LowPAN, etc. A discussion on machine learning algorithms for IoT was delivered by Prof S.Kaushik from Sri Ramakrishna Engineering College, Coimbatore.
Dr. Amit Mahesh Joshi, Dept. Of Electronics & Comm. Engineering, MNIT, Jaipur delivered a lecture on IoT networks for Health care. A demonstration on CISCO Packet Tracer for IoT was given by Dr. K. Deepa from the Dept. of Electronics and Communication, MRU. Dr. Seema Nayak, HOD ECE, IIMT Group of Colleges spoke on Embedded based IoT systems in which she gave a brief on the technical road map to IoT along with the latest work being carried on. This was followed by a hands-on session by Mr. Vijay Kumar Gill and Mr. Lokesh Bhardwaj from the Dept. of Electronics and Communication, MRU on the development of IoT-based Apps.
