In the next three months, our partner TOI – Things on Internet will be showing use cases and running SPRINT 4.0 workshops with Zerynth powered devices in three European universities. The first workshop will be in Barcelona, from the 8th until the 12th of July.

Furthermore, the duration of the training course is one week. There are also special time slots for the workshops, and for showing the 4ZeroPlatform use cases. Just enough time for the students to sharpen their Python skills and learn new things.

Those students are mainly, master students from Big Data, Cybersecurity, Digital Transformation, and Smart Cities. So, those with an engineering background and knowledge in programming.

During the course, other partners will deliver lessons concerning big data, security, and more.

Industry 4.0 projects with the 4ZeroPlatform

All three workshops will be focused on Industry 4.0 related projects. We’re delighted to know that hundreds of students will be able to learn about IoT, Industry 4.0 and Python with the Zerynth ecosystem.

After all, Python is the most popular programming language today. It had a steady climb in the last decade, and now it’s at the top.

TOI will be presenting their past use cases, with the 4ZeroPlatform, where they have used the Zerynth ecosystem. Projects and products like a Biogas production monitoring system in Tuscany, or the industrial refrigeration monitoring system.

We’re sure that the students in Barcelona will have some innovative and interesting ideas to share. The TOI team will be holding the week-long workshop at the La Salle, of the Ramon LLull University.  Thankfully, the 4ZeroPlatfom is versatile and ready for new uses.

The SPRINT 4.0 workshop in Barcelona will be followed by one in Bremen at Biba University (Bremen Institute for Production and Logistics) in the first half of September. The third one will be held in Pisa at the end of September. As you can see, it will be a busy summer.

Zerynth and XinaBox workshop

TOI will also be holding a workshop that combines Zerynth tools and XinaBox xChips.

They will be using popular xChips, that you’re already familiar with, like the CW02 and IP01. The CW02 xChip already has a Zerynth license on-board, which means you can start programming it right out of the box.

If you’re not familiar with the combination of Zerynth and XinaBox, you can start with our tutorial for LED blinking with Python on the CW02.

Essentially, this part of the workshop will be divided into three sections. This way it will cover multiple knowledge levels. Students will go from learning how to blink an LED to sharing data over WiFi in real time.

If you want to learn more about this, see the tutorial that explains all three parts.

More about the 4ZeroPlatform

The 4ZeroPlatform is a plug-and-play data gathering, processing, and reporting solution.

4ZeroPlatform is made out of:

  • 4ZeroBox, a Python programmable versatile data acquisition unit (Zerynth powered).
  • 4ZeroManager, a Cloud or “on-premise” system for device and data management and integration with ERP, MES and BI tools.
