IWKS 5120: IoT: The Internet of Things (CSCI 2942)*
In a world where everything is connected to everything else, how does that work? This course introduces techniques for (1) designing systems that can sense and respond to humans in meaningful ways, (2) creating networks of physical objects that collect and exchange data, and (3) creating autonomous devices. 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.
