Smart City Projects
Have you ever imagined how to create your own smart city? This package can produce at least 11 smart city projects. The following are some reference examples. The scope of coverage can be divided into 5 categories, including automation, security, entertainment, personal wellness, and energy management.
Smart Car Park Access Barrier
A distance sensor is used to detect the vacancy of the parking space. When the parking space is full, the brake lever will automatically fall to prevent the vehicle from entering.
The above are examples only, you can design your own smart city, simply combine different cases together or create dedicated cases in your city!
Teach students the knowledge of smart cities and IoT
Through the kit, students can make their own smart cities, and understand and learn the importance and operation of smart cities.
Includes 9 commonly used smart city models and a city map
Allow teachers to focus on teaching smart cities and reduce crafting time. At the same time, a flexible smart city map can facilitate students to design on the map.
Advanced Internet of Things
In addition to the basic IoT functions Thingspeak and IFTTT, it also supports panning control, cloud control, and object intercommunication functions.
Suitable for group learning (computer classes/activities)
This kit is recommended to be used by a group of 2-3 students. The teacher can teach each topic of a smart city, and let the students make their own ideal smart city.
The kit is highly flexible, allowing students to design their own ideal smart city model.
