Summer Sheffield IoT Meetup: IoT and Innovation

Posted on

Ioetec, together with co-hosts Pitch-In, were excited to hold the first of two Sheffield IoT Meetups over the summer on 30 July. The event featured our placement students who are working on IoT projects to develop a range of different sensors that make use of the regional LoRaWAN network. Along with our guest speakers, topics included technology for smart cities, manufacturing and health and well-being, include our region’s response to Covid-19.

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