EE Times University Series: Fundamentals of IoT System Design
Designing an IoT device requires more than expertise in embedded system design. Developers also need to understand the IoT architecture and how their device fits into the grander scheme. IoT devices are not stand-alone but links in a chain that can affect the entire internet. Developers need to understand how to secure their device, provision it and get it safely communicating on the internet. In this 3-day course, we will go beyond the embedded and examine these critical IoT concepts.Day 1 - The IoT Architecture
In this session, we will take a hands-on look at how we can build an IoT sensor node and the various sensors that a developer might consider in their design.
Day 2 - Creating an IoT Sensor Node
This class will take a hands-on look at how we can build an IoT sensor node and the various sensors that a developer might consider in their design.
Day 3 - Securing and Connecting the Edge
This final lecture will explore how to connect a device to the internet and the various security methodologies that should be considered. We will also discuss concepts such as remote provisioning and control, interoperability, and stand-alone operation.
