Embedded Computing for the Internet of Things World
Ciclo de Conferências 2019/2020 - Tecnologia, Empresa e Sociedade
Computing involves a combination of hardware and software, where the software engineer is tempted to believe that the hardware always delivers the necessary computing power. However, with the arising of new concepts and architectures, particularly with the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), the need for low cost, low power, and small form factor computing devices, assumes great importance and new challenging issues.
In this seminar, we will take a look at the embedded capabilities of several microcontrollers and how to approach their embedded programming. Particular emphasis will be given to the new fields of Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs) and Edge Computing.
