Exploring the ESP32 based M5Stack Core WiFi ApplicationsStatus: Available Now
This talk will discuss the ESP32 with WiFi from the perspective of the M5Stack Core. The ESP32 WiFi architecture will be explained in the presentation. The following talking points for the discussion will consist of the following topics.
- Seminal Research Perspective on Communication Systems.
- ESP32 with WiFi Introduction
- M5Stack Core WiFi Setup
- Build a basic M5Stack Core WiFi Scanner
- Build a M5Stack Core Access Point and Web Server Controller
The two build projects will align with the ESP32 with WiFi discussion and provide physical examples participants can explore on the bench.

Building an Interactive IoT Dashboard With Speech Synthesis Using Node-REDStatus: Available Now
Hardware devices, Application Programming Interface (API), and online services can be wired together using a data flow-based programming tool called Node-RED. Node-RED allows developers to build IoT devices using a web browser editor quickly. A developer can create an IoT device using a variety of Node-RED widgets provided with the data flow-based programming tool. In this talk, the participant will learn the essential visual programming environment by building an IoT interactive flow dashboard with a speech synthesis demonstrator.
How to Train the Future IoT Workforce Remotely? (2020)Status: Available Now
With Covid19 impacting hands-on learning at higher education and postsecondary institutions, undergraduates and postsecondary learners have no to limited access to engineering and technical instructional labs. How can instructional training in IoT be implemented remotely? In this Virtual Talk (VT), the spending cost of IoT products and the demand for a technology- oriented workforce needed will be presented. To meet this workforce demand, instructional strategies for learning IoT technologies remotely with low cost hardware development platforms will be discussed. Also, open source software tools to aid in creating IoT applications will be presented. Further, WiFi and Bluetooth (BT) development approaches will be compared along with alignment of hardware platforms. The specific hardware platforms to be discussed in this VT will include ESP32, ESP8266, the Raspberry Pi, Arduino Nano 33 BLE/Nano 33 BLE Sense, and the BBC micro:bit. In addition, WiFi and BT application concepts for sensing and control will be presented.
