The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) at SRM University-AP is hosting the third edition of the ongoing online Workshop Series “Learn & Earn: Hands-On Science & Technology (HOST)” to learn and explore the latest techniques in the field of science and technology. The workshop series-III, titled “IoT Hands-on with MATLAB & ThingSpeak”, will be held on August 10, 2021. Mr Ramana Anchuri from MathWorks will engage the participants of the workshop from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
The main objective of organising the workshop on IoT is to impart practical lessons on the following topics: a) Leveraging low-cost hardware for IoT, b) Setting up ThingSpeak Channel c) Basic Hardware Integration such as Blinking an LED, Reading sensor data and acting on data, d) IoT Analytics using ThingSpeak like Apps and Data Explorers.

Prerequisites for a highly effective workshop session:
- All participants should have a MathWorks account, if they haven’t already – follow the instructions in the attached doc for account creation.
- All participants must complete the MATLAB Onramp & Simulink Onramp prior to the session. Each of these free Onramps typically takes 2-3 hours and is self-paced. Participants get a completion certificate from MathWorks for each of these courses.
- Since we have hands-on activity during the session, every participant needs to join with a working laptop with access to MATLAB installed version/MATLAB Online – They need not have hardware at their end.
- For those participants who don’t have a license to access MATLAB, they can request a trial.
