OGO Internet of Things



Internet of Things (IoT) is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items. IoT enable devices may include unique electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity modules in order to collect and exchange data. IoT is quickly gaining an industrial foothold in The Netherlands and internationally and requires engineers with IoT expertise. In this hands-on project students are asked to work in multi-disciplinary groups to address a challenge concerning how a large pool of IoT devices, connected to form an intelligent network can be used to solve practical engineering problems relating to emerging applications such as autonomous driving and in building navigation and localization. The students will engage in the design and optimization of the wireless network connecting the IoT nodes, the establishing of algorithms and protocols for data exchange as well as the introduction of appropriate sensors to collect essential data for performing the project. Next to the technical challenges also the business aspects of the project will be explored within the groups. At the end of the course, the students will demonstrate that their solution can indeed solve the challenge taking into consideration specifications such as speed and energy efficiency.
