Grupo de Investigación de IoT UNMSM

Vision

To discover, develop and commercialize IoT Solutions that can help advance innovation, education and common good in our country.


To discover, develop and commercialize Smart City Solutions that can help advance innovation, education and common good in our country, while challenging our members to make a difference and building a thriving Team.

We are a group from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM) in Lima, Peru. The group was formed in 2017, following regulations established by the Vice-President for Research and Postgraduate Studies at the UNMSM. Our focus of Research and Development are:

1. Internet of Things

2. Industrial automation (Industry 4.0)

3. Smart Cities

One of our main strengths, we are a multidisciplinary team formed by students, teachers and professionals in Systems Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Industrial Engineering, as well as graduate and thesis students, and even seasoned and active business developers. The UNMSM was established in 1551. Needless to say, we enjoy a body of knowledge and expertise that is hard to come by easily in a public setting. And the secret of our success lies in our student body. We believe in them, and in their ability to use our teachings to fulfill their full potential.

Publications relevant to IoT

A couple of our members, Professors Guerra and Fermin participated at the ITiCSE 2017, the 22nd Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education at the University of Bologna, Italy. ITiCSE is organized by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), which is a SIGCSE (Special Interest Group): http://iticse.acm.org/ITiCSE2017/

At the ITiCSE they published IoT relevant articles:

• The Internet of Things in CS Education: Current Challenges and Future Potential: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3081331

• Implementation of a Robotics and IoT Laboratory for Undergraduate Research in Computer Science Courses: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2925494

• Alignment of Undergraduate Curriculum for Learning IoT in a Computer Science Faculty: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3073001

Also, these same Professors have been accepted to participate at the ITiCSE 2018 (Cypress), organized by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery): https://iticse.acm.org/.Their working group will be presenting: “The Internet of Things in CS Education: Updating Curricula Exploring Pedagogy”.
