If you want to know what technology is needed for things like IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and Mobile CPS (Cyber Physical Systems), you should take this course. The course addresses the concrete building blocks of such systems; starting from user interfaces and spanning from the sensor/actuator devices to the related cloud services.
Course formatThe course is an advanced course in a project format, where you learning by doing. The topic is varying and is assigned per group. Also, the number of credits is not fixed (can be 5-10 ECTS):
- 5 ECTS: typically a project spanning 2 periods and having 2 intermediate reports.
- Over 5 ECTS: typically more deliverables and a longer time span
Topics I/2018Note that this is the 2018 autumn page. The contents of the course vary, but the most of the project topics address Mobile Cyber Physical Systems and use model scale car as the platform.
As a reference, see the intro slides of 2017 autumn (under the section "Material"). Detailed information on the course, the topics available, etc. will be given at the introduction lecture.
- Also, the group formation process is started at the intro lecture (so, it is important to be present)
- Remember to enroll to the course
ScheduleA typical project spans over 2 periods. The basic flow is:
- Group forming phase (with supporting lectures)
- Planning phase (with supporting lectures)
- Work phase (lab work)
- Termination phase (final demo)
Detailed schedules for the work phase are planned per project.
Assessment and gradingProject is done in a group preferably of 3-4 students. The group completes a common project work aimed at learning a particular topic and whose results are documented in a set of technical/scientific reports. In addition, each member of a group prepares a personal learning portfolio about his or her work and studying.
PrerequisitesAs the course is an advanced one, you should have done general studies and studies related to the topic. Note that participation can be restricted.
