SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Internet of Things for a Connected World includes the hardware, technologies, operations and software involved in the world of IoT. This module will explore disruptive innovations made possible by IoT, with hands-on examples from Singapore. We aim to overview the entire ecosystem from single devices to smart cities and consider questions ranging from how to implement IoT and provide a strategic advantage to the business.

This module aims for students to gain knowledge and understanding of IoT embedded systems, their architecture and operations, through to deployment, operation, maintenance, and analysis of IoT. We will understand IoT devices through a taxonomy of systems, sensors and networks, be familiar with the state-of-the-art in IoT, current constraints in design and operations, and think about future trends.

Through a mixture of lecture-based instruction backed up with demonstration and discovery, self-paced learning and online sub-modules, students will master the ability to understand and analyse IoT systems. This includes significant aspects related to development, operations and maintenance, and being confident to interact directly with IoT devices.

What You’ll Learn

Students will learn about:
  • The architecture and operation of embedded IoT systems.
  • Software development for, and deployment of, embedded IoT systems.
  • Operation, maintenance and analysis of IoT in the real world.
  • A taxonomy of embedded IoT devices, sensors and networks.
  • State-of-the-art in IoT, current constraints and future trends.
Additionally, students will be able to:
  • Understand IoT systems, analyse them, appreciate operations and maintenance challenges.
  • Interact directly with IoT devices.
Embedded IoT System Concepts
  • Taxonomy and outline architecture, basic concepts relating to storing and moving data, communications, power and security. Example systems (e.g. Raspberry Pi), introduction to the IoT ecosystem, driving trends, industry players and technology roadmap.
Architecture of Embedded IoT Systems
  • The architecture of embedded CPUs, sensors/actuators, transceivers, peripherals. Embedded device memory and system issues, remote storage and processing devices and architecture. The implications of using memory- or compute-constrained devices and interlinked systems.
Software for IoT Targets
  • IoT operating systems and embedded programming, code development. Cross-compilation and development tools. Software debugging, performance and testability. Operating systems for embedded IoT devices (e.g. embedded Linux, mbed).
IoT Communications Protocol
  • These topics explore the various wireless communications that are frequently used in IoT ecosystem such as LoRA, BLE, NB-IoT, Sigfox, and 5G.
Systems of IoT
  • Introduction to popular communication middleware, i.e. CoAP and MQTT. Design and prototype an IoT ecosystem that performs operations and IoT management such as MQTT and ThingSpeak (open-sourced IoT data analytics platforms).

Who Should Attend

  • Industry practitioners with a wish for hands-on learning.
  • Anyone with a basic knowledge of networking, computers and programming, who wants to get a taste of what IoT is and what it could do for their business.
  • Technical employees who wish to upskill in a new area.
