Duration: One Day
The Internet of Things (IoT) technology revolution today is what the internet revolution was in the 90s. It is completely changing the way we live, work and play. Whatever industry or field you are in, a basic understanding of the various components of the IoT value chain is crucial. This course will help you answer the “why, how and what” questions for IoT.
The course will start by exploring examples and case studies on why we need IoT and how it can impact our day-to-day work in various industries. You will then learn about the various components of an IoT solution – things, networks, cloud and software – through hands-on experiments using open source IoT development boards and IoT cloud software. The course will end by discussing the real-world challenges of deploying IoT solutions and brainstorming use cases that you would like to implement once you go back to work.
The course uses a unique mix of theory, hands-on experiments, brainstorming and challenges to ensure you absorb and retain the knowledge and skills learned during the course.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in Emerging and Disruptive Technologies.
The course aims to:
- Introduce absolute beginners to the world of IoT and connected hardware
- Inspire participants to start their Corporate IoT or Digitalisation projects
- Provide hands-on experience on the popular IoT Wi-Fi Microcontrollers
- Equip participants with the skills to create an end-to-end IoT prototype solution within a day
- Brainstorm IoT ideas and applications for participants’ respective industries
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Conceptualise IoT solutions for their business cases
- Independently create IoT proof of concept demonstrations
- Choose the right IoT technologies for their use cases
- Estimate the effort and resources required to roll out IoT projects
Who Should Attend
Executives, managers and leaders
- Basic computer skills
- Knowledge of high school physics – electricity
