Moreover, the course will highlight practical aspects of the IoT infrastructures.
After completing this course, the student shall be able to:
1. describe and argue about the fundamental concepts of IoT infrastructures.
2. describe and evaluate various components in IoT infrastructures, including physical devices, communication infrastructures and computation platforms (cloud/fog/edge computing).
3. develop an IoT application based on the first two objectives and conduct an experimental evaluation.
- Layers in IoT infrastructures
- Sensors and actuators
- Controllers in IoT
- Operating systems for IoT
- Network communication protocols for IoT
- Cloud computing basics
- Fog/edge computing basics
- Industrial IoT applications
