What we're about

The Brisbane Internet of Things (IoT) Interest Group aims to help newcomers to IoT understand the potential of the medium, and to help experienced practitioners stay in touch with new technologies, emerging trends and our peers in the field. The promise of the Internet of Things is to extend our reach and awareness beyond our immediate presence, to allow our buildings, vehicles and cities to become an extension of our person. Computers that inhabit our homes and workplaces are positioned to react to our unique needs in a way that mass-market consumer items cannot.

Our evening symposia begin with refreshments and a networking session, followed by 40-60 minutes of of presentations.

We also offer weekend practical sessions where you will have the opportunity to be hands on with technology, learning about techniques and technologies, and creating devices to meet each attendee's unique needs.

**ONLINE IoT Karaoke** - Design a crowdsourced disaster alert

• Topic for this month Sometimes a minute's warning is all you need. Be it fire, flood, hail or just a rain shower on your washing, what if we filled the city with (enough) weather sensors to track weather events in real time, and warn those in their path. Let's consider how Brisbane's (admittedly modest) free-access LoraWAN network can be leveraged to support a cloud of weather-event sensors that provide an open event notification system. This is not a presentation, rather a brainstorming session, or what we call "IoT Karaoke" where a problem (song) is proposed and we all suggest (sing) how to solve it. • What we'll do At our usual monthly evening events we begin with networking and a light dinner (finger foods, beer, wine and soft drinks), then presentations commence from 6:30. At the current time Queensland OHS guidelines limit venue spaces to 1 person per four square meters, so it is not practical to hold our usual evening gatherings. We expect to resume physical events when these restrictions are relaxed. Our Sunday open lab events are proceeding with a limit of 10 people, to suit our 45m2 space. What would you like to learn about? Let us know! Is there something you would like to share? We can offer you encouragement and guidance to present to the group. • What to bring • Important to know

Sunday (mad) Science - Bring a problem seek an answer

Talk to experts, chat with your peers, discover solutions. Enjoy free access to our 3D printers, CNC machines and other tools. Get hands on with sensors, motors and displays to explore new possibilities. Kids welcome (TV/games room in case they zone out).
