Internet of Things (IoT) is a popular buzzword and currently a hot technology worldwide. The “Internet of Things” describes an important technology trend which is having lasting effects on society at large.Government, academia, and industry are involved in different aspects of research, implementation, and business with IoT. IoT cuts across different application domain verticals ranging from civilian to defence sectors. These domains include agriculture, space, healthcare, manufacturing, construction, water, and mining, which are presently transitioning their legacy infrastructure to support IoT. Today it is possible to envision pervasive connectivity, storage, and computation, which, in turn, gives rise to building different IoT solutions. IoT-based applications such as innovative shopping system, infrastructure management in both urban and rural areas, remote health monitoring and emergency notification systems, and transportation systems, are gradually relying on IoT based systems. Interesting, the explosive growth of the “Internet of Things” is changing our world and the rapid drop in price for typical IoT components is allowing people to innovate new designs and products at home. Therefore, it is very important to learn the fundamentals of this emerging technology.
This course aims to give:
a solid grounding in the key technologies involved and how they're integrated to form complete IoT systems
an understanding of how the internet of things fits within the wider context of the ICT industry
Key Points and Features
