Event Summary:

On the 7th November 2020, Makers Madurai Collaborated with Geeksup organized a live session on Youtube titled as Raspberry pi with Android OS @5.00 PM – 6.30 PM with their targeted audience being College Students, Developers, Working Professionals. Ms.Soundarya who is a Program Coordinator of GeeksUp introduced the guest speaker Mr.Mathan Kumar who is a IoT Engineer working @Geomeo Informatics Pvt Ltd Singapore. The session is handed over to Mr.Mathan Kumar.

First Mr. Mathan Kumar introduced himself and he is very proud to be a guest speaker for this title Raspberry pi with Android OS. He explores the screen and explains What is Raspberry pi? . That plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse.​ The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer​. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.​

Continuing the session the participants are more interested how to connect the Android OS in Raspberry pi. Mr.Mathan Kumar has explained every essentials explanation in Android OS. What is Android OS? The Android operating system was developed by Google (GOOGLE) for use in all of its touchscreen devices, tablets, and cell phones.​ 

This operating system was first developed by Android, Inc., a software company located in Silicon Valley before it was acquired by Google in 2005.​ While the Android source code is released in an open-source format to help advance open standards across mobile devices, it is still packaged with proprietary software when sold on handset devices.​

The time is going, we got more viewers in our channel. Now he went to the next step i.e. the project architecture. It is important and he explained every structure in these requirements. We went to the next step. What are the requirements for doing this project? He explained easily two types of requirements we need essentially such as Hardware Requirements and Software Requirements.

Suddenly a participant raised a doubt. What are the components and softwares we require in both. Mr.Mathan Kumar explored the screen and explained. In hardware SD Card 16GB, SD Card Reader, Raspberry pi 3GB, Powercable and etc., we need SD Card Formatter, Etcher, Image file, VNC / Putty are in software. 

The participant got more interested. The session might continue. Mr.Mathan Kumar explained every setup of this Raspberry pi and OS. As time went on he gave more ideas and excellent software to continue this project.

The session goes to end. Viewers get more interesting scenarios to this event.

Thank you

Event Objective

The main objective of this session How to “Build your own smart Hand Sanitizing Dispenser” with IoT. Hereafter Makers Madurai gives a good chance to build your smart own hand sanitizing Dispenser with IoT.

Event Summary

On 4th July 2020, Makers Madurai & GeeksUp organized a live session through youtube, titles “Build your own smart hand Sanitizing Dispenser by using IoT Technologies. Mrs.Padmapriya organizing this session and Ms.Soundariya introduced the speakers of the day after welcoming all the attendees of the session. The session were handed over to Mr.Mathan Kumar.

Now, the enthusiastic session is starts, Viewers are very excited to that topic “What is IoT?” Mr.Madhankumar explained about Internet of things – The Internet of things is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

Viewers are more interesting to learn some new technologies. Mr.Mathankumar continued the session from Simple Technical Explanation of More Expensive Hand Sanitizing Dispenser with IoT. He gave a small speech about “Problem and Prevention of Disease”.

The time is going on! Viewers are increased! Mathankumar explained about Arduino, API Json Schemas, ESP 8266 etc., In that time he gave an essential hint for every projects “Every Processer is important for Every Project”.

The session might continue, he told requirements of the “Smart Hand Sanitizing Dispenser” Project Like Arduino IDE, PHP, AWS, Android Studio & MQTT. Generally, People knows some software such why we use PHP server, IDE, AWS & Android Studio but MQTT is a new word for Viewers. Madhan explained that protocol “It is a Messaging Protocol” and etc.,

Before that Mr.Madhankumar explained the Architecture of Smart Hand Sanitizing Dispenser project. What are the Hardware kits we want to do this hand sanitizing dispenser? Such as Relay Module, Ultrasonic Sensor, Reset, USB Charger Port, ESP32 Microcontroller, DC Submersible Pump and Finally the hand sanitizing liquid. He explained about every hardware.

Event Summary:

This is the enthusiastic time the Makers Madurai community has appropriated the Hands on session on IoT. We are so excited to see the participants because they are very interesting and very attentive in this event.

Mr.Deepak Kumar started the speech about “What is IoT ? and How it uses? People are so interesting and the students are studying the 2nd and 3rd year in ECE department and IT Department so they are very attentive to learn about the Iot and trends of Iot.

Continuing this, our IoT developer Mr. Deepak Kumar has explain about “ How the IoT works in real-time with some examples like Air Conditioners in IoT , 4 Components of bridge, Sensors in IoT, Networking details and cloud Computing. These examples are explained through by how the IoT have been worked in these areas.

During this session, it was so good to see some exclusive questionaries’ happened from participants and Deepak has answered every question by showing them real time projects.

The interaction produced a positive vibration among the participants and it continued with the interesting mood till the end of event.

At this juncture, Mr. Deepak has telling about the IoT applications with some examples like Health Monitoring System for Humans (Smart Watches Example) and in Consumer side of things also explained some examples with recent products such as irrigation system used by drones etc.,

Mr. Deepak has explained about the benefits of IoT and how it works in every human life some examples also there like Home automation which means alertness of product running or not from home and he explains about the Big Data, Machine Learning, Block Chain etc.,

After completing the Deepak speech, Mr.Madhan has started the speech for participants. Mr.Madhan says about “First How IoT works and ask the questions about students. Students are replied “we are 2nd and 3rd Year students we don’t know about this and it is a good opportunity for our career platform. And continue the Madhan Speech About in depth of IoT in real time projects.

Hereafter, students shouldn’t know about what is cloud? And How It works etc., At this juncture, our developer has explained from basic of cloud to in depth. Participants has realised how it works in day to day life. During this our speaker has asked some questions about pollutions and how it pollutions are worked with Internet of things and he said some examples also.

However, he give the speech again, Upon this some real time projects also we expand to participants like Raspberry pi, Arduino, Node MCU etc. and since he explained what are the products we want to interface with IoT (Web Interface, Mobile App Development). Due to this, student is asked what are the programming languages to do IoT Products. Madhan also explained that Questions like some languages such as, C, C++, Python, Json etc. One Participant has said, now a days Json is important thing to all.


And we have to learn some Basic Electronic and Circuit Design because these are very important for IoT platform.  Some platforms also there to develop IoT that’s Cloud platform and hardware platform.

Now the event has come to frequently asked question session. Here people are so interest to ask the questions about IoT.

After break the real time project session is conducted to students, they are very interest to handle the board like Arduino UNO and very interest to programming also. Our Mentors are very happy to teach us. Finally, the real time project session also completed.

Feedback: participants gave the excellent feedback, that’s “we don’t know about the Advanced technologies in IoT”. This session is very useful to us and “we don’t know how many things are contained this IoT”. So we are very happy.
