Description of module content:

Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging network of physical objects that connects various sensors, software, and other technologies to the Internet. The aim of this module is to learn about design and development of IoT systems, including embedded architecture of IoT, technologies and autonomous systems. On this module you will learn concepts, practical aspects and applications of sensors, wireless technologies, robotic systems, data collection (and related processing technologies) for remote control of objects. The following topics will be covered: Introduction to Internet of Things, basic concepts and the state of the art technology used in IoT systems. Transducers and sensors Drones and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) Autonomous systems sub-components : Sensors, motion control and intelligent decision making (i.e. an introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Techniques).

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to

LO1: Describe and evaluate key technologies related to Internet-of-Things and their applications for autonomous systems.

LO2: Describe and discuss a comprehensive understanding of the data transmission and processing for IoT systems.
