A two-day workshop was conducted at RCET, on March 18 and 19 ,2023, focusing the ground-breaking field of the Internet of Things (IoT) by the Department of Science and Humanities, RCET. The workshop, titled “IoT Applications for Agriculture and Medical Systems,” was designed specifically for first-year students of the Electronics and Communication Engineering department. The sessions were led by experts Mr. K. Hariharan and Mr. K. Pon Raj from R&D at AB Technologies, providing students with valuable insights into the potential of IoT in critical sectors.
The workshop aimed to introduce students to the world of IoT and its applications in two key areas: agriculture and medical systems. IoT, which involves connecting everyday objects to the internet to collect and exchange data, has the potential to revolutionize various industries by enabling smarter and more efficient processes.Understanding the applications of IoT is vital for aspiring engineers and the workshop provided students with practical insights that will prepare them for the technology-driven future.
Over the course of two days, students delved into the intricacies of IoT and its practical implementations. The sessions covered a range of topics, including sensor technology, data collection, connectivity, and the role of IoT in enhancing agriculture and medical systems.
Mr. K. Hariharan and Mr. K. Pon Raj, both experienced professionals in IoT and R&D, shared their expertise with the students. Their insights into real-world use cases highlighted the transformative potential of IoT in optimizing processes, reducing inefficiencies, and improving decision-making in agriculture and medical contexts. The workshop was an eye-opener for the students and learning about IoT’s impact on agriculture and medical systems made them realize its significance in shaping the future. The Department of Science and Humanities was delighted to have experts like Mr. K. Hariharan and Mr. K. Pon Raj to share their insights with students. Workshops like these empower students to bridge the gap between theory and real-world applications.
As the workshop came to an end, the students left with a deeper understanding of IoT’s potential in agriculture and medical systems. The workshop aligned with RCET’s commitment to providing students with experiences that enhance their academic journey and prepare them for the technological advancements of tomorrow.
