We will work on Connected IoT Objects for Smart Citizens giving participants an intensive hands-on experience about the understanding, planning and prototyping of IoT devices for smartcity purposes. During the workshop we will uncover the technical issues and the design strategies leading to a lean and smooth IoT device prototyping. Under the guidance of the IoT pioneer Adrian Mc Ewen, we will combine a technical hardware exploration with a market oriented approach to development, while unlocking inclusive technological solutions for smart citizens and municipalities through ethical business. 

All along the Open Innovation and Design Research format of the workshop, Opendot laboratory will become for 5 days the perfect environment for meeting skilled and talented makers, developers and designers and together co-create and co-develop innovative solution for smart citizens and smart municipality based on IoT hardware.
Come and spend a week getting to grips with the latest developments in the Internet of Things and smart cities, and prototyping ideas to make Milan a smarter urban environment.
Learn more about the low-power sensor network protocols LoRaWAN and Sigfox, and get hands-on building devices using the network. We will work with several boards included about SmartEverything LION board deploying LoRaWan protocols sponsored by Arrow. We will try IBM's open-source Node RED platform for quick and easy prototyping of IoT solutions with its visual flow-based programming, and see how it can be used to interact with the real world and build simple dashboards to visualize data from your sensors.
