Sheffield IoT Meetup: summer meetup featuring IoT students


Ioetec and co-hosts Pitch-In held the second summer Sheffield IoT meetup on 27 August 2020. The meetup featured Pitch-In IoT students and some excellent guest speakers. The students are developing hardware and software sensor systems which make use of the regional LoRaWAN network for Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity.

Student and guest speakers covered topics including our region’s response to Covid-19 and technology projects on smart city living, manufacturing and health and well-being.

A recording of the presentations is available below (see timings to jump to relevant sections).
