Fun with Arduino & Sensors – BUILD! – A hands-on session to make your own data collection device

Have great ideas that use sensors to make your life better? Join this community workshop to put together sensors on an Arduino platform, and have them collect data on the cloud for visualisation and analytics!
Maybe it’s a sensor that analyses air quality at your location, or tracks noise level in your neighborhood, or maybe you’re just looking for a solution to get your IoT devices talking. Come and meet like-minded individuals and build together on the Snootlab Akeru Beta 3.2 – An Arduino platform that uses the Sigfox IoT technology to send small amounts of data via its own proprietary network back to the cloud. This technology is used by companies like FastPark and Whistle.

If you have some basic knowledge of Arduino, this workshop is for you! Else, just join us to learn more! Just bring your own laptops with the Arduino IDE, and Arduino-based sensors. SingTel will be providing the Snootlab Akeru Beta 3.2 boards, and 12Geeks will also have some sensors available for purchase on-site.
