Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

The course labs and project will deal with IoT devices programming, thus programming/developing skills (especially in C/Java) are necessary. 

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student should be able to:

  • Discuss major machine-to-machine (M2M) communication characteristics and analyse them
  • Identify and analyse the requirements for network layer support for an Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure
  • Design solutions for integrating smart objects into IoT frameworks
  • Design IoT architectures and services
  • Evaluate the performance of IoT systems based on identified key performance indicators

Course content

This course introduces the design principles of the Internet of Things (IoT), their device and infrastructure-related architectures, technologies and protocol frameworks towards enabling the formation of highly distributed and ubiquitous networks with seamlessly connected heterogeneous objects. The student will learn to design and analyze such networks and architectures to support the development of intelligent services, with different performance requirements, in a variety of application domains.

Specifically, students will be exposed to architectures and methodological paradigms for the Internet of Things, and protocols at the different levels of the IoT stack. They will also learn to map those concepts on an access layer (including sensor, vehicular and cellular networks for machine-to-machine communication) and network layer (with particular emphasis on IPv6-based solutions), and analyze their performance. The course will also introduce technologies and protocols at the service and application layers, which enable the integration of embedded devices in web-based, distributed applications. 

Teaching and working methods

The course comprises lectures, programming assignments, and an implementation project.
