Internet of Things and Web Applications KIT717


Internet of Things (IoT) is a rising set of technologies that provides access to a large quantity of data through sensors. IoT is enabling users to visualize and monitor aspects of their environments that would otherwise be impossible manually. The ability to connect devices to the internet allows humans to have access to data in real time. Today there are standard web-based technologies that allow users to visualize IoT data on web browsers or apps. The cost of micro-controllers has gone down in recent years and many communication mechanisms have emerged such as LoRa, LoRaWAN and MQTT protocols.

The aim of this unit is to introduce you to Web Development for IoT and related modern technologies like Blockchain and Digital twins. The objective is to increase your awareness of the role of IoT in our society and its potential that derives from increasing data sharing activities. This unit also seeks to develop critical thinking while considering Internet of Things and, based on practical field components, provide you with the opportunity to deploy your own IoT web applications. You will use several sensors based on a micro-controller platforms like Arduino to create sensor applications that collect data and then integrate them with the internet and cloud-based platforms.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
