IoT Geeks - IoT with Arduino OTA Firmware Workshop
Register in Google Form for Gate Entry About OTA Technology: Learn the concept of OTA firmware updates on remote devices and how they are transforming the future of IoT products. In the early days of IoT, updating remote devices often caused intermittent disruption and performance degradation. As IoT platforms have matured, they have embraced a novel way to remotely and reliably update connected devices with little to no disruption: over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates. Over-the-air firmware updates refers to the practice of remotely updating the code on an embedded device. The embedded hardware must be built with OTA functionality for this mechanism to work. This technology became extremely useful in case of limited or no physical access to the module. Over-the-air firmware updates refers to the practice of remotely updating the code on an embedded device using wireless connection than physical serial port upgrade. The embedded hardware must be built with OTA functionality for this mechanism to work. Application Examples on OTA: • Classic OTA • Arduino OTA Target Audience: This workshop is designed for who is working as a IoT Developers / Hobbyists and who wants to develop their skills in IoT. OTA is the technology it will helps the person who wants to upgrade their software in IOT device remotely. Prerequisite: Learners should familiar with Networking and programming concepts. Agenda: • Introduction to IoT • IOT fast news for this month • Introduction to Over the Air • Brief Explanation about IOT Protocols. • Brief explanation about HTTP server and Web browser • How the OTA helps in real scenario • Flash the Software without physical connection • Explanation about MD5Checksum Benefits for Professionals / IoT Startup Enthusiasts • Learning about OTA concepts • How to implement OTA for their IoT Devices • How to handle the Flash Memory of IoT Device • Learning about IoT Protocol Benefits for Students • Learning about IOT Protocols • Learning about Server Configuration • Learning about Internal Memories of IOT Devices • Learning about Restart in IOT devices • Learning about software up gradation Course Outcome • Opportunity understand the next phase of growth in IoT • Motivate Students / Professionals to build a product • Understand technology and how it is being utilized elsewhere Discussion Points: • How we can Flash the software if the devices have been connected in different Networks • How we can perform the OTA in Smart card Computer (like RPI, Beaglebone)
