Access to Skills and Knowledge related to Internet of Things (#ASKrIoT)

#ASKrIoT a mentorship program that focuses on building the capacity of University students in Internet of Things (IoT) research and development of relevant applications that solve problems in their communities.

Through this program the team is building their own version of the #ASKotec called #ASKrIoT

#ASKotec: Access to Skills and Knowledge open tech emergency case

The #ASKotec is a kit that is designed to work as a mobile training set and is equipped with the items needed to teach others how to use Open Tech and Open Source Hardware in order to innovate, educate, and repair items, thereby providing access to vital skills and knowledge. The kit is especially valuable to communities where access to tools and materials is often scarce.

The Open Tech Emergency Case is housed in a rugged, dust-proof case and includes a range of high-quality tools and materials needed to teach hands-on skills in terms of repairs, development, and upcycling. The kit allows for

  • learning about electronics, especially the use of small-scale solar energy.
  • repairing, disassembling, and building mechanical and electronic devices.
  • the development of skills and sharing of knowledge.

Each #ASKotec contains over 50 items, including:

  • electronics, connection hardware, solar elements
  • soldering, cutting, measuring, and specialised mechanical tools
  • arduinos, sensors, LEDs, related modules
  • manuals and user-developed how-to guides
  • a compact Linux computer with open source software

 The #ASKotec kit is part of the #ASKnet program. It was created through a series of hub-development workshops as a resource kit for community trainers who work in areas where there is neither reliable power nor internet connectivity, such as in many refugee camps, low-infrastructure regions, or rural areas.
