41305 Industrial IoT Studio6cp
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Students are recommended to have completed 41092 Network Fundamentals or an equivalent introductory subject in the area of networking and programming. As a minimum, students should be familiar with how to connect devices over a network, network protocols and be familiar with components and layers of networks, e.g. hosts, clients, servers, switches.
The industrial internet of things (IIoT) will transform current industries as we know them, with sectors, such as manufacturing, currently undergoing a digital transformation. Ultimately, this will lead to network-based, connected factories. This studio addresses a critical gap created when factories move beyond IIoT pilots and into full production – that is re-skilling and retraining their workforces. The studio is an introductory course in IIoT for students aiming for a career in IIoT, or persons already working in the manufacturing sector and wishing to learn contemporary skills. Principally, students work on a well-defined design problem to develop skills and experience in the engineering design process for IIoT systems through engagement with:
- Introduction to the IIoT – its technologies and potential applications.
- Skill development in relevant software (e.g. IoT middleware, dashboards and databases) and hardware (e.g. sensors and actuators).
- Practical, hands-on experience of overall IIoT system/architecture design and implementation, using industry-standard equipment.
