IoT (Internet of Things) for University Faculties
Purpose:Unlike other technologies, IoT is far more complex encompassing almost every branch of core Engineering-Mechanical, Electronics, Firmware, Middleware, Cloud, Analytics and Mobile. For each of its engineering layers, there are aspects of economics, standards, regulations and evolving state of the art. This is for the firs time, a modest course is offered to cover all of these critical aspects of IoT Engineering.
For Faculty members, it is of paramount interest that they should have an overall background of evolving IoT standards. To apply for grants in IoT areas, faculties must be exposed to new research directions where they can fit their existing skills. They also need to be aware of overall idea of funding areas in IoT. This course will address those evolving areas where they can attract more research and industrial grants in IoT.
Duration: 2 Days ( 8 hours / day)-Total 16 hours.
Overview:Estimates for Internet of Things or IoT market value are massive, since by definition the IoT is an integrated and diffused layer of devices, sensors, and computing power that overlays entire consumer, business-to-business, and government industries. The IoT will account for an increasingly huge number of connections: 12 B by 2019 and 100B+ by 2025.
In the consumer space, many products and services have already crossed over into the IoT, including kitchen and home appliances, parking, RFID, lighting and heating products, and a number of applications in Industrial Internet.
However the underlying technologies of IoT are nothing new as M2M communication existed since the birth of Internet. However what changed in last couple of years is the emergence of number of inexpensive wireless technologies added by overwhelming adaptation of smart phones and Tablet in every home. Explosive growth of mobile devices led to present demand of IoT.
Industrial IoT, or IIoT for manufacturing has been widely in use since 2014 and since then a large number of IIoT innovations have taken place. This course will introduce all the important aspects of innovations in Industrial IoT area.
Over the last three years, engineering in IoT has seen massive changes primarily driven by Microsoft, Google and Amazon. These large behemoths have invested billions of dollars to develop IoT platforms that are more easy to manage and secure. Also IoT edge has gained a lot of momentum in both research and deployment as only means for practical IoT implementation. 5G is also promising to transform the business of IoT. This has led to an unprecedented large swath of new areas of research funding in IoT.
Course Objective:Main objective of this course is to introduce emerging technological options, platforms and case studies of IoT implementation in emerging verticals ( smart cities, smart manufacturing, agriculture, public safety etc) and horizontals ( edge computing, PaaS platforms, 5G-IoT etc.) for the University researchers..
