Internet of Things – Introduction
This course will introduce the role of IoT in modern life as well as basics of concepts that are necessary to understand IoT systems. The definitions and explanations for the terms System, Information, and Network will be considered in the first part of this course. Later we will learn about applications of theoretical concepts in some practical cases. The course is designed for people who want to understand what role IoT systems play in Fourth Industrial Revolution known as Industry 4.0 and to help them find relevant applications for these technologies in their work and studies.
The main goal of this course is to give a comprehensive introduction into the state of IoT in the modern world and familiarise a student with key concepts of the subject. Student will learn about different types of data and their possible impact on communications between devices. At the end of this course student will be able to identify the applications for IoT systems and perform basic analysis of such systems. As this course is only an introduction one of the goals is to spark interest in students for further studies of the subject.
- Understand definitions of IoT, data, information, system;
- Understand types of networks and their features;
- Familiarise student with IoT as a subject for further studies.
The course is divided into 4 chapters, each has theoretical part and a short assignment in a quiz form at the end, as follows:
- Systems, Information, and Networks;
- Probability and Game Theory;
- Applications of IoT systems.
