The 2021 edition of the Summer School Enabling Technologies for Industrial Internet of Things (ET-I2oT 2021) is organized to offer 6 ECTS (48 hours of front lessons) in the fields of Electronics, RFID, Sensors, Networking, Web of Things, SW for IoT, targeting an audience of Bachelor (last year), Master and Ph.D. students, early-stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.
Both HW and SW aspects of IoT will be presented and discussed during the school.
Lessons will be held in English at the Meeting Room of the Department of Information Engineering (DII), via G. Caruso 16, Pisa, Italy.
The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform).
Should the restrictions on student mobility and on-site teaching activities persist, the program will be activated in distance learning mode and it will be entirely held online, via Microsoft Teams.
Lessons will be held from 21 to 28 of July 2021 at the Aula Magna of the School of Engineering, University of Pisa, exploiting all facilities available in terms of conference rooms and labs. The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform). The social language will be English.
The summer school provides theoretical and practical lessons about recent advances in enabling technologies for electronics, electromagnetics, future wireless transceivers, and wireless sensor networks, systems, edge and cloud computing, networks in scenarios such as IoT, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical-Systems (CPS), autonomous vehicles, robots.
Wireless circuits and systems and internet technology are becoming pervasive in many applications fields such as Industry4.0 (e.g. RFID, additive manufacturing, smart manufacturing), vehicle industry (e.g. connected cars, advanced driver assistance systems, V2V and V2I wireless communications, radar, lidar), automation in industrial or domotic scenarios (e.g. wireless sensor and actuator networks), health&wellness (e.g. wireless wearable sensing and biomedical circuits), robots.
A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ECTS. Indeed, the school has got already accreditation at the European level being part of the network of European Summer Schools. The school in the past 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 editions hosted about 30 students/year, from 4 continents (Europe, America, Asia, Africa) with invited speakers like Federico Faggin, the "father of the microprocessor", Franco Maloberti, IEEE CAS society President, Lorenzo Fioramonti, past Minister for University and Research.
The teaching material has been published in the IEEE book "Enabling Technologies for the Internet of Things: Wireless Circuits, Systems, and Networks", 2018, Editor: Sergio Saponara, University of Pisa, Italy, ISBN: 9788793609747
The 2021 program will be similar to the 2020 program available at https://www.dii.unipi.it/summer-school-enablig-technologies-iot-2020
