Title: MYOSA Workshop (Supported & sponsored by IEEE Sensors Council)

Speaker: Mr.  Abhishek  Jani


Abhishek Jani is a Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics Engineering) from Marwadi University, Rajkot. Currently he is working as Research Engineer in DA-IICT, Gandhinagar, Gujarat. His interest areas are: Electronic system design, Analog Circuits, PCB design, Embedded C, Embedded Systems Design, 3D model design and Robotics. Abhishek has published papers in peer reviewed international conference in the area of assistive technologies. He is an IEEE member and currently he is Secretary cum Treasurer of IEEE Sensors Council Chapter of Gujarat Section.


A workshop for Pre-University Kids in Montreal was organized in association with IEEE SENSORS 2019 ( on 30 October, 2019.

Workshop Objective:

Learn about sensors and actuators, viz., temperature sensor, Luminosity Sensor, Humidity sensor, Pressure Sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope, Air Quality Sensor, RGB and Gesture Sensor, buzzer, relay etc.

How to collect data and monitor them

How to make meaningful decisions based on these data

How to build an application using one or many of these sensors

About MYOSA:

MYOSA (Make Your Own Sensors Applications) is a plug-and-play, multipurpose, multi-sensor system for learning about sensors and for developing sensor-based applications. The entire system of MYOSA is like a lego game. All the components of this system are in the form of ‘blocks’ and can simply be plugged into each other. Each of these blocks includes multiple sensors, actuators and an OLED display that shows the data fetched from the sensors.

This ‘Plug and Chug’ feature provides the users with ready-to-apply connections of all the necessary components with the motherboard. One doesn’t have to worry about configuring the sensors and connecting them using wires. With MYOSA board one can directly jump to developing creative applications!

The motherboard of MYOSA is an Arduino derived open source board. The motherboard also has a Bluetooth 2.0 module through which the output data of a sensor get transferred to the MYOSA mobile App. Thus, MYOSA is a complete package for getting introduced to the world of sensors and creating wonderful applications!
