On 16 May 2017, Hands On Future project had its second workshop in Milan.
Hands On Future is a project addressed to those who need to cross the line: real pioneers of hi-tech who like to get their hands dirty and test their skills for building the future. It allows people to discover future technologies and experience innovation before it happens, with the idea that what is brand new today, will be already obsolete tomorrow.
Organized by A2A Smart City and Ultrafab, the format “Hands On Future” offers a series of workshops in which the latest technologies are presented by experts and then tested on the field. This is made possible thanks to development kit based on the A2A Smart City network data, available to all participants.
After a first edition on 18 November 2016, the second workshop of the project took place at Casa dell’Energia - Fondazione AEM on Tuesday 16 May 2017 from 2.00pm to 6.30pm. This event open to everybody focused on the LoRaWAN technology, a long range wireless protocol designed to allow low energy devices to communicate with applications that are connected to the internet.
The workshop comprised theoretical and practical sessions about transmitting and receiving data using the standard of the Internet of Things (IoT): the participants received a special developer kit to design useful applications in many fields such as safety, mobility utilities, fitness and sport, for building the smart city of the future.
