In ‘Applied Internet of Things (IOT)’ students will develop an understanding of the practical implementation of IoT in different market segments by analyzing current real-world case studies. Each case study will discuss the gap that IoT is filling, the key benefits to implementing this application and some of the challenges inherent in adopting this new technology. Case studies are chosen to demonstrate innovative and cutting-edge applications of IoT. In exploring these new applications, students will develop an appreciation for the creative solutions offered by IoT. Key market segments covered in the course include transportation, utilities, Smart City, and health. The case studies will touch on applications that help improve safety, increase efficiency, and provide better solutions to common issues. Examples of what students will learn include ‘robot sniffers’ that detect gaseous contaminants or how 5G hospital clinicians, with the aid of a VR headset, are able to visualize exactly what the paramedic sees in the ambulance and remotely direct the paramedic, with a joystick, in real time to perform any necessary procedures. They will also learn how IoT can help protect and sustain our fragile world by collecting valuable information about ocean pollution, climate change, and biodiversity. The course is open to anyone interested in learning how IoT can be utilized in key market segments. It is geared for people who wish to explore career opportunities, upskill, or want to increase their understanding of digital transformation. It is also an excellent course for executives and decision makers who are called upon to evaluate and implement IoT solutions in a wide range of sectors – public and private. With better data available and new ways to use data, IoT is providing innovative ways to creatively solve new challenges and address and fix old problems. This course shines a light on how IoT is changing the way we work and live.
