The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing our lives using connected devices. This course begins
with an overview of networking fundamentals that are essential for reliable and secure IoT
device connections. It covers specific networking technologies, protocols, and security issues
that are important for IoT devices. Participants explore how to connect devices to IoT platforms
such as Amazon AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, and ThingSpeak. Since there are now so many
IoT devices and since the technology is relatively new, security is a major concern for IoT device
developers and users. The course examines how to design strong security into IoT devices.
Course participants gain hands-on experience using the Raspberry Pi hardware/software
platform to explore specific concepts and technologies that are important for connecting and
securing embedded IoT systems. For the final course project, participants outline a specific IoT
application, evaluate the networking and security issues, and connect a device to an IoT
Students are required to purchase the following:
- SparkFun XBee 3 Wireless Kit (includes 2 of the 802.15.4 Xbee 3 modules, 1 Xbee Explorer, 1 Xbee Shield, and headers that must be soldered to the shield)
Note: The Sparkfun XBee 3 Wireless Kit includes an Xbee Shield that requires that you solder headers that are included in the kit. If you do not want to solder, you may purchase a shield with headers already soldered, such as Gikfun Bluetooth XBee Shield V03 Module Wireless Control for ZigBee Arduino
