General Information

Overview

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of networked sensors that feed information to applications to make smart decisions. In this unit, you will learn the fundamentals of the IoT as well as the opportunities IoT brings to the connected smart world. This unit will develop your understanding of the hardware and software components of IoT systems, including sensors, gateways, and applications, as well as the network protocols used to communicate between devices. You will learn to store and present IoT data using a dashboard, and learn of the challenges associated with the proliferation of IoT, such as standardisation of communication protocols, reliability, and sustainability, and identify how they impact future IoT deployments. Finally, the unit will cover privacy, security and ethical issues raised by the connected smart world of IoT.
