Course description

Internet of things solutions: smart devices, processes and services


IDU0310 spring semester professor: Enn Õunapuu 6 EAP

A world where physical objects are seamlessly integrated into the information network, and where the physical objects can become active participants in business processes. Services are available to interact with these ‘smart objects’ over the Internet, query and change their state and any information associated with them, taking into account security and privacy issues. The network formed by things/objects having identities, virtual personalities operating in smart spaces using intelligent interfaces to connect and communicate with the users, social and environmental contexts.

Internet of Things (IoT) is an integrated part of Future Internet and could be defined as a dynamic global network infrastructure with self configuring capabilities based on standard and interoperable communication protocols where physical and virtual ‘things’ have identities, physical attributes, and virtual personalities and use intelligent interfaces, and are seamlessly integrated into the information network. In the IoT, ‘things’ are expected to become active participants in business, information and social processes where they are enabled to interact and communicate among themselves and with the environment by exchanging data and information ‘sensed’ about the environment, while reacting autonomously to the ‘real/physical world’ events and influencing it by running processes that trigger actions and create services with or without direct human intervention. Interfaces in the form of services facilitate interactions with these ‘smart things’ over the Internet, query and change their state and any information associated with them, taking into account security and privacy isuses.

Me liigume maailma, kus füüsilised objektid on sujuvalt integreeritud informatsiooni võrgustikku, kus füüsilised objektid võivad saada äriprotsesside aktiivseteks osalisteks.
Meile saavad kättesaadavaks teenused, millega on võimalik suhelda nende ‘tarkade objektidega’ interneti kaudu, teha päringuid nende seisundi kohta ja muuta nende seisundit, võttes seejuures arvesse turvalisuse ja privaatsuse probleeme.
Kursuse käigus esitatakse asjade interneti mõiste määrang. Tutvustakse vastavaid seadmeid ja vahendeid nende loomiseks. Esitatakse lahenduste arhitektuur ja loomise vahendeid.
Üliõpilased saavad interneti asjade ‘tarkade’ lahenduste loomise kogemuse.

Laboris saavad üliõpilased katsetada valmis asjade interneti lahendusi (Elioni tark kodu ja Yoga systemsi targa maja lahendust), neid täiendada ja luua ka iseseisvalt asjade interneti lahendusi (kasutades näiteks Open Energy Monitori vabavaralist lahendust.
