Hands-on workshop on “Webcam Motion Detection using IOT”

A Hands-on workshop on the topic “Webcam Motion Detection using IOT” organized on 25.08.2021 by the Industrial IOT club at Jansons Institute of Technology, Coimbatore. The session was handled by the IIOT club student coordinators of AI & DS department, where they provided the real-time simulation of the motion detection using IOT.
In this workshop, video surveillance system is presented based on a single board computer represented by Raspberry PI as an embedded solution. The aim is to make a smart surveillance system which can be monitored by owner remotely. As it is connected with IOT, the system will send the notifications when an intrusion is detected inside the room. It is required to develop an affordable low cost web-camera based surveillance system for remote security monitoring. Authorized user can access to their monitoring system remotely via internet with the use of a mobile phone and monitor the situation on application.
Students and Faculty members took part in the workshop which was enriching and highly insightful. The session ended with the discussion of future enhancements of the work.
