The 2019 edition of the Summer School Enabling Technologies for Industrial Internet of Things (ET-I2oT 2019) is organized to offer 6 ECTS (48 hours of front lessons) in the fields of electronics, electromagnetics and ICT for Internet of Things (IoT), targeting an audience of Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, early-stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.

Lessons will be held in English at the Meeting Room of the Department of Information Engineering (DII), via G. Caruso 16, Pisa, Italy.


Lessons will be held at the Aula Magna of the School of Engineering, University of Pisa, exploiting all facilities available in terms of conference rooms and labs. The official language will be English.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ETCS (European Credit Transfer System). Indeed, the school has got already an accreditation at European level being part of the network of European Summer Schools.

The summer school provides theoretical and practical lessons about recent advances in enabling technologies for electronics, electromagnetics, future wireless transceivers, systems and networks in scenarios such as IoT, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical-Systems (CPS), autonomous vehicles, robots.

Wireless circuits and systems and internet technology are becoming pervasive in many applications fields such as logistic (e.g. RF identification), vehicle industry (e.g. connected cars, advanced driver assistance systems, V2V and V2I wireless communications, radar, lidar), automation in industrial or domotic scenarios (e.g. wireless sensor and actuator networks), smart manufacturing (e.g. industry 4.0), health&wellness (e.g. wireless wearable sensing and biomedical circuits), robots.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ECTS.

The school in the past 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions hosted about 30 students/year, from 4 continents (Europe, America, Asia, Africa) with invited speakers like Federico Faggin, the ""father of the microprocessor"", Franco Maloberti, IEEE CAS society President, Lorenzo Fioramonti, Undersecretary of State for University and Research

The teaching material has been published in the IEEE book " Enabling Technologies for the Internet of Things: Wireless Circuits, Systems, and Networks", 2018, Editor: Sergio Saponara, University of Pisa, Italy
