The African Center of Excellence in the Internet of Things (ACEIoT) in collaboration with WAZIUP is organizing a short course in Rapid Prototyping for IoT. This hands-on activity will focus on building open, low-cost, sustainable IoT solutions.
The new version of WAZIUP IoT application platform is released. Let us guide you through the making of full IoT solutions from the sensor to applications: you will build your own IoT LoRa sensing platform and your own web application.
We are proud to announce you that we have a partnership with LA FÁBRICA ALEGRE to give WAZIUP one (1) Loranga board for every 10 boards sold (when they reach the campaign goal). WAZIUP can then give these boards to some selected African organizations.
Wazihacks #4 and #5 were organised by our partners from UGB (Senegal) and Ispace (Ghana) in late 2017 and early 2018. It was as usual a good occasion to gather developers and proceed to a buisiness spin off.
The IRD (Institut de recherche pour le développement) is a French research organism that emphasizes on interdisciplinarity research. The IRD has focused its research for over 65 years on the relationship between man and its environment, in Africa, Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and the French tropical overseas territories. UMMISCO is the IRD’s international laboratory on complex system modelling.
The Ecole Nationale des Sciences Appliquées (ENSA) at Safi, Morocco and the IRD/UMMISCO at Yaoundé, Cameroon, have recently expressed great interest in the low-cost and open IoT approach promoted by the EU H2020 WAZIUP project.
At Swinburne Sarawak, in addition to presenting the WAZIUP technology to CDF’s researchers, a workshop on the applications of Internet of Things (IoT) for government officials was organized on 7 February 2018 by Director of CDF, Prof.
The IoT Lab at Ho Chi Minh University of Technology (HCMUT, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) and the Centre for Digital Futures (CDF) at Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus (SUTS, Kuching, Malaysia) have recently expressed great interest in the low-cost and open IoT approach promoted by the EU H2020 WAZIUP project.
Dr.-Ing. Abdur Rahim (project coordinator) of WAZIUP organized a seminar on IoT and Big Data for Sustainable Development at EAST WEST University (EWU) of Bangladesh on 23rd January 2018. The students and staff from universities participated in the Seminar.
In the wake of the physical meetings, UGB (Université Gaston Berger) of Saint Louis ( Sénégal) organized a workshop that gathered professionals and teachers in several areas such as agriculture, water, mathematics, and so on. The objective was to point out the problematics in those areas of competency and present how Waziup platform and IoT solution could face issues.
Wazihack has been organized with the collaboration of the UGB incubator, in St Louis, Senegal. During the Wazihack call for proposals, more than 30 teams submitted their projects from all over the country. However, 10 proposals regarding IoT, and innovative aspects were selected.
IoT Clubs are original initiative to tackle the process of spreading IoT in Africa. They are based on the FabLabs networks to localize the european project WAZIUP. Then the clubs become the lieu for sensibilisation and experimentation on the issues and potential of IoT.
WAZIHACK Togo took place in the capital of Togo, Lome in February 2017. The event lasted three days from 17th to 21th February 2017.
This event took place in iSpace the 24-25 February 2017.
In Ghana, the participants were not very familiar with the Arduinos and LoRa. The format was modified and turned into an Introduction to IoT, the sample sensors, how to assemble the devices, etc.
Do you want to know exactly and in a simple and visual way how to build your low-cost long-range IoT Gateway with Lora?
WAZIUP partner UGB (Gaston Berger University) mounted 3 gateways and 3 end devices with temperature and humidity output. They have been placed on the roof of the IT computing center.
Charlotte Dupont, EGM data scientist, and Sabrine Fatnassi, EGM test & validation engineer, presented a poster at IotBigData 2016 in Roma, Italy. The poster showed an overview of the project, with both IoT andBigData Platform.
WAZIUP partners visited two different real-life testing scenarios that will be used to effectively integrate the real world fish farming situations/solutions with the digital world of WAZIUP.
The second physical meeting between WAZIUP consortium members occurred in Accra, Ghana lasting 2 days. It culminated with a public presentation event for the developer community in Accra to learn about the platform, a hands on demonstration, meet the WAZIUP partners, learn about the program and present the evolution of tasks achieved to date.
WAZIUP has been evolving since its launch in February 2016. The coordination consortium is progressively making the first steps towards the accomplishment of the objectives targeted.
The IoT week was this year held in Belgrade on 31st May to 2nd June and attracted about 400 participants from 30 countries.
