Course Objective


This course will be focused on introducing students to new trends, applications, system architecture and challenges involved in developing/deploying internet of things systems using real industrial use cases. A number of systems are getting connected to the internet, where the sensor data is analyzed to monitor and control the systems. Correctly analyzing data coming from multiple sensors, choosing the right hardware given the power and performance tradeoff, hardware heterogeneity and security are some of the challenges involved in developing IoT applications. In this course, students will read research papers from top-tier conferences and journals for IoT to learn the most recent advancements in IoT research. The course will cover the real-world use cases of IoT applications and hands-on projects related to those based on the concepts learned in the class.
