Internet of Things

Credits: 6

Objectives: The objective of this course is to teach the principles of internetworking of embedded devices and the state-of-art architectures, technologies and protocols aimed at enabling the formation of highly distributed and ubiquitous networks of seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices which can be fully integrated into the current Internet, fully in line with the Internet of Things paradigm. The course enables the student to design and analyze such networks in order to support the development of intelligent services with given performance requirements in a variety of application domains.

Description: After introducing the main architectures and paradigms for the Internet of Things, the course focuses on the technologies and protocols at the access layer (including sensor, vehicular and cellular networks for machine-to-machine communication) and network layer (with particular emphasis on IPv6-based solutions), discussing the different solutions provided to meet the most relevant functional and non-functional requirements (including routing, quality of service, and mobility support). The course then focuses on technologies and protocols at the service and application layers which enable the integration of embedded devices in web-based distributed as well as multimedia applications.

Assessment: Oral exam and practical project.
