Workshop Title: From Conceptualization to Implementation: A Hands- On Workshop on End-to-End Product Development leveraging the Arduino MKR Rapid Prototyping Platform.
Researchers and students can greatly benefit from transferable abilities in methodically developing challenging technology ideas via rigorous product development. This intense hands-on workshop teaches participants how to build investment-ready Internet-of-Things prototypes from the ground up, covering opportunity sensing, systems design, quick implementation, and robust testing on the Arduino MKR platform. Attendees can expect to gain substantive expertise in envisioning ventures by building functional prototypes to effectively communicate viability to external partners through scaffolded modules augmenting focused fundamentals across abstraction methods, minimum viable product generation, and entrepreneurial cognition. The pragmatic perspective strives to empower researchers with the tools they need to transform ideas by directing end-to-end management from concept crystallisation to demonstrable technical and business traction.
