Why should you take up this course?


The objective of this first-level course is to provide a basic introduction to the participants on developing an IoT-based system, including the various components of such a system. These systems can be deployed in industries or as prototypes for research in IoT. The course will cover aspects that need to be considered in design, implementation, hands on experience in building such a system.


Participants will become familiar and comfortable with the general IoT framework. The lecture parts will cover systems level aspects of sensors, networks, and computing involved in IoT systems. There will be associated dedicated hands-on  lab sessions that will provide the details of building such a system for a simple use cases. This will include interfacing a basic IoT system to some sensors, the associated interfacing, communication, computation and analysis of data acquired through the IoT sensor setup. The lecture and lab sessions will be integrated to give a complete picture of a basic IoT system. This course will be a pre-requisite for other advanced courses that will build on this course and will specialize in specific aspects of the course or be targeted to specific application areas.


The focus of the present course on IoT is to introduce basic concepts of IoT, its components, build a simple IoT system, and deployment of it for simplified application. The course will involve both theory and hands-on experiments involving IoT for a simple application.
