Embedded design for Wireless Sensor Networks

Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous with the extensive use of custom designed embedded controllers & edge sensor nodes getting more and more intelligent and capable to transmit their information directly to a cloud and also get controlled/actuated from the cloud. The pervasive nature of hooking anything to the Internet which was not thought previously opens up a new era of imagination and deployment for a connected world with endless possibilities. The hands-on workshop covers the architecture of TI CC3200 which is a wireless microcontroller and the first in the industry to evolve to a single microcontroller programmable to wireless (WiFi standard) connectivity. The learning outcomes are :

  • Good exposure of Internet enabled systems and their applications.

  • Learning the CC3200 controller design & architecture.

  • Working knowledge of Energia IDE .

  • Understanding on working of Wireless sensors.



1. Overview of IoT and its Applications

  • Introduction to Electronic Systems , Examples Embedded systems, basic peripherals to build an embedded system. Overview of IoT and its roadmap, Opportunities & Challenges in implementing IoT Solutions.

  • CC3200 Platform, Value Line Architecture, Features and Peripherals.


  • Connectivity Solutions using CC3200 Wi-Fi –Accessing HTML Page from HTTP Web Server and interfacing with Microcontroller for control applications.

  • WLAN connection in Access Point Mode.

3. Embedded System using Energia IDE

  • Digital Out, Digital In, Analog In, Analog out, UART using CC3200 Launch pad.

4. Wireless sensor network using sub 1GHz RF and MSP430 G2

  • Establishing sensor nodes and sending data to sensor nodes



1. WEB Server – Wi-Fi

  • Creation of own Web Server and Web page for Monitoring and control applications.

2. Cloud Application – Thingspeak cloud Cloud Application – free board.io

  • Exercises on cloud application using Thing speak cloud server and connecting CC3200 to monitor the data on the free board.io dash board and on mobile APP as client.

3. Wireless sensor network + Cloud

  • Exercises on Connecting multiple sensor nodes to a Gateway and sending data to cloud.

  • Q&A session
