(312g) Vertically Integrated IoT, Off Grid Control-Sensors, Advancing with Arduino, Android App Shells, Programming, Rapid Big Data: The Kitchen Sink
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 10:00am to 10:20am
There are a number of âinternet-of-thingsâ, i.e. IoT, topics that have emerged since the turn of the century. Chemical engineers have the ability to contribute to and use IoT as stepping stone means to learn new skills, apply classic principles, and extend them to current topics such as the fusion of data-controls-safety. This workshop segment will focus on a vertically integrated project that brings together societal stakeholders in the context of technology, education, and arts. The overall project makes use of culturally relevant arts theme in Richmond, Virginia âthe river cityâ, resulting in what could be called a âboundary objectâ. Stakeholders include primary & higher education students-teachers, community, and professional societies with extensions to industry. The focus of this segment involves technology and the repurposing of an urban space into an âurban commonsâ, resulting in a multifunctional learning center. The project allows community and higher education to participate in integrated science technology education and mathematics, i.e.STEM, while incorporating art. This segment demonstrates advanced topics of developing integrated affordable electronic-controls IoT projects. Specifically, environmental sensors, a heater, a motor and Arduino shield development are integrated in an off of the grid electrical system. The segment demonstrates electronic development principles, programming, trouble shooting, and data collection. Extensions are made from chemical process control to data collection and wireless networking. A particular focus of discussed aspects will include purposeful and flexible interfaces for future modifications. Flexibility is introduced because it is expected that higher education students would interface with community to introduce upgrades or modifications in addition to teaching-learning infusions at the community level. The experience is akin to working with chemical processes in an industrial setting.
