Our society has been revolutionized by the use of computers and the exchange of information over the Internet. This revolution is taking place in industry as movements like Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet Consortium attest. Industries must integrate this technology to stay competitive. Since this is a new technology, it is usually purchased. The question that this course aims to answer is what requirements should be made when purchasing such solution.
The students will learn how industrial IoT solutions work and have to develop a simple solution for their industry to grasp the implications of the requirements they make when purchasing a solution.
About the course
The course contains both theoretical and practical components. The theoretical part covers basic Internet communication, Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). It also covers the Eclipse Arrowhead framework as an example.
The practical part uses a development board with a modern microcontroller that measures temperature (among others). The students connect securely over the Internet the development board to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and are able to subscribe to the sensor values in a web browser. No prior programming knowledge is required.
The course is provided as contract education and is subject to a fee. Please contact Luleå University of Technology for more information.
