IWKS 4120: Physical Computing and the Internet of Things

Introduces techniques for (1) designing cyber-physical systems that can sense and respond to humans in meaningful ways, (2) creating networks of physical objects that collect and exchange data, and (3) for creating autonomous artifacts. Examples of such systems include interactive art, wearable health monitors and game playing robots. Working individually and in teams, students develop projects using Inworks’ materials, devices and fabrication tools, culminating with a final project of the students’ choosing. The course involves considerable prototyping and software development, but requires only introductory programming and prototyping experience.
