On June 25th, we held the “Agricultural IoT 1-Day Study Session” which covered sensor assembly, environment setup, programming, and visualization. The event lasted for five hours, and all the participants completed visualization of their measured data.
The session provided a set of practical IoT equipment and environment that is easy to continue to utilize after attending the session. The lecture covered downloading and setting up the code editor “VScode” and the build environment “PlatformIO” for microcontrollers, programming, wiring connection of temperature sensors, ESP32 development boards, and PCs, and visualization using the IoT data visualization cloud service “Ambient,” along with explanations of key points to keep in mind for each.
Combined with hands-on active work, knowledge becomes easier to understand. The session was packed with offline benefits to deepen understanding of the IoT interactively.
The program also touched on Wi-Fi communication and source code for home vegetable gardening at home using this environment. We hope the participants enjoyed the review of the IoT environment and the kit they created while having fun at home.
Here is a report on the feedback from those who attended.
It would have been difficult for me to prepare everything I needed on my own, but the management provided the equipment and made it easy for me to get started.
The materials were easy to understand.
I had no experience assembling the wiring myself, so that’s where it took me a while.
I would like to participate again if given the chance.
The organizers were greatly helped by the participants, who proactively sought solutions to any problems that arose. We will continue to make use of the feedback we received to improve the event in the future. Thank you very much for your participation.
Due to insistent public demand, the seminar will be held again in the near future.
We are planning to hold the next session in Tokyo in addition to Osaka, as we have received requests from some participants who said they would like to participate but are too far away to go.
If you are interested in learning IoT is, and you don’t know where to start, or you don’t have the necessary equipment and environment to get started, this is a great opportunity to learn more about IoT.
