About Course

The Internet of Things is generating the next Industrial Revolution. Nearly every object can now be connected to the Internet — from smart gardening to sophisticated Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems of intelligent/smart vehicles, even organic farming, waste management, pest control, crops, and cows. Connecting several things and capturing useful data transforms organizations in every industry and opens gateways for new career specializations. In that way, IoT’s foundation lies in the convergence of different technologies working collectively to solve real-world problems or enable new products and services. The main objective of this course is to provide the learners an insight into the fundamentals of IoT and understanding IoT from an embedded point of view. Compare nanotechnology and industry 4.0, understand IoT architecture, characteristics, and applications of IoT with the real-time case studies. This course gives the base to outline the technologies that have supported IoT Growth.

What is the objective of this course?

The Internet of Things is changing our physical world into a complex and dynamic system of connected devices on an unusual scale. Advances in technology are making possible more widespread adoption of IoT, from micro-cameras to smart sensors that can assess crop conditions on a farm to the smart home devices that are becoming increasingly popular. The Internet of Things is everywhere. It is used in a range of applications and has both corporate and consumer uses. This short course is designed to give an overview of the Internet of Things. This course provides a detailed understanding of a new dimension of connectivity in the Internet of Things, THING architecture, the evolution of IoT, nanotechnology, industry 4.0, applications of IoT, benefits of IoT, technologies that have supported IoT growth, standardization, and challenges of IoT, etc.

What Will You Learn?

  • Do you wonder how the bike helmet crash sensors work? Did you think about how smart smoke detectors work? By the way, you can control the washing by sitting somewhere away from it. Do you know how it works?
  • This course eases this confusion by providing a jumpstart, an overview of the basics of all four layers of the Internet of Things starting from sensor-connected IoT devices or “Things” to IoT gateway.
  • You will be introduced to useful connectivity terminologies and the network configuration of the IoT, essential building blocks of the IoT, which includes sensors and actuators.
  • You will be introduced to integrated applications, M2M and IoT
  • You will learn the basic features of Rasberry Pi and Arduino
  • You will be analyzing the real-time case studies of present technologies
  • To discuss the fundamental concepts of the Internet of Things, and connectivity terminologies
  • To analyze the functional blocks of IoT and THING architecture
  • To compare nanotechnology and industry 4.0
  • To understand the evolution of connectivity and analyze the connected things
  • To differentiate industrial IoT and consumer IoT
  • To outline the technologies that have supported IoT growth
