This module provides an overview of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing concepts, infrastructures and capabilities. This will help students gain the necessary knowledge to construct IoT systems and use cloud services for processing and storage of the data produced by the IoT devices. Emphasis will be placed on the architecture and design of IoT systems, the different technologies (wireless/mobile/sensor) governing system implementation and the migration of the data to the Cloud for processing. This module aims to develop knowledge and critical understanding of the underlying principles of Cloud Computing and IoT systems, and the commercial and business implications of technical advances in this area. Students will gain practical experience in the development of Cloud-based IoT systems and exposure to appropriate hardware and software platforms that underpin such development.
By the end of the course, you are expected to be able to:
This course is divided into 4 modules, namely:
Unit 1: Introduction to IoT & Cloud
Unit 2: Internet of Things
Unit 3: Cloud Computing
Unit 4: Application of IoT & Cloud
