Challenges in the Internet of Things

The building blocks of technology require delivery on the most fundamental challenges.


Variety of wired and wireless connectivity standards are required to enable different application needs

Sensing a complex environment

Innovative ways to sense and deliver information from the physical world to the cloud

Power is critical

Many IoT applications need to run for years over batteries and reduce the overall energy

Security is vital

Protecting users’ privacy and manufacturers’ IP; detecting and blocking malicious activity

IoT is complex

IoT application development needs to be easy for all developers, not just to experts

Cloud is important

IoT applications require end-to-end solutions including cloud services

Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity Protocols

covered during the course

There exists an almost bewildering choice of connectivity options application developers working on products and systems for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security and power demands and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of technologies. These are some of the major communication technologies on offer to developers.

Course Overview

The course duration is — academic hours and will be delivered over — meetings of 5 academic hours each

This is a comprehensive and intensive course. (see the course syllabus)
