Description: Project LOOM | Design an Internet of Things Rapid Prototyping System!
The Problem? Developing Internet of Things projects, especially for non-engineers is hard. Yet, IoT is poised to transform every industry, from music, fitness, agriculture, to robotics. Your team will help develop an Open Source solution: LOOM IoT. You'll work directly with Dr. Chet Udell, Director of OSU's Openly Published Environmental Sensing Lab and CEO of eMotion Technologies LLC (IoT systems for Musical Instruments).
Cisco Systems estimates that by 2020, more than 250 things will connect to the Internet each second with 50 billion total devices communicating online. Today, shoes keep track of how fast and far we run and watches can detect if its owner has heart trouble and call for help. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the notion that everyday objects like cars, coffee makers, umbrellas, and traffic lights will collect data and not only communicate over the internet, but autonomously collaborate together to optimize our daily lives.
LOOM is like LEGOS for building IoT projects. Simple enough for a kindergartner to use, limitless in scale and complexity. Your team will help develop this plug-and-play, modular IoT learning and development platform to enable anyone, from K-12 students, musicians, artists, farmers, scientists, to experienced engineers to quickly and easily realize their IoT dreams.
Objectives: • Create a suite of modular IoT sensor and actuator "bricks" that can be configured to make just about anything with minimal to no programming or soldering.
• Create a series of activities and apps to enable anyone to quickly begin making IoT based projects with LOOM.
Deliverables: • Proof of Concept suite of modular IoT sensor and actuator "bricks" that can be configured to make just about anything with minimal to no programming or soldering.
• a series of activities and apps to enable anyone to quickly begin making IoT based projects with LOOM.
