Building tomorrow society: IoT applications & data management Summer School

Internet of things, smart homes, smart buildings, smart cities, big data… these increasingly popular words describe the future ahead of us.

All these application domains require handling an incredible amount of data and interacting with an incredible amount of devices (sensors and actuators), with sufficient intelligence and power to select information and actions relevant to the end-user.
The Summer School introduces the fundamental aspects of the new breed of smart applications, and will cover their full design cycle: distributed wireless sensors, data sensing, data transmission, and collection and management, intelligent behaviors, data visualization and user interaction.
The teaching approach will be practical, with theoretical lectures intertwined with hands-on experimental activities.
Students will develop simple Smart Environment applications.

Participants will receive 4 ECTS credits upon successful completion of a final exam.


Politecnico di Torino, Italy


July 16th - 20th, 2018


All the activities will be held in English
