Abstract

This course gives an introduction to IoT as well as practical experience with the design and implementation of  end-to-end IoT systems.


Description

The course will be composed of five parts: 

  1. Architecture of IoT systems 
  2. Sensing and actuation 
  3. Operating system and abstraction levels in networked embedded programs 
  4. Wireless networking 
  5. Energy consumption of networked embedded programs 

Formal prerequisites
Before the course, the students should be able to:
  •  program in C and Python
  •  understand basic concepts of operating systems and distributed systems
Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to:

  • describe the architecture of IoT systems
  • design, implement and evaluate networked embedded programs
  • evaluate and compare a range of low-range networking technologies
  • analyse the energy consumption of networked embedded programs
  • analyse security issues associated with networked embedded programs
  • design, implement and evaluate an IoT system
  • reason about the societal impact of IoT systems
Learning activities

  • 2 hours a week of theory/lectures
  • 2 hours a week of exercises

Mandatory activities
2 mandatory assignments.
content: Design, implementation and evaluation of end-to-end IoT solutions.

The student will receive the grade NA (not approved) at the ordinary exam, if the mandatory activities are not approved and the student will use an exam attempt.
