Cyber Physical Systems and IoT Course - Digitisation in Manufacturing (Level 9, 5 ECTS)

Starts 21 November 2020

This is a stand alone module as part of the Master's in Digitisation and provides participants with the fundamentals in cyber-physical systems and IoT. This module helps learners to develop understanding of cyber-physical systems and IoT knowledge on how to collect, process and store data generated from various sources. The module adopts an applied learning approach to understanding embedded systems, the Internet-of-things (IoT) and the cyber-physical systems (sensors, control boards) necessary for data acquisition in industrial environments. The aim of this module is to enable the learner to programme standard ICT Boards, I/O, sensors and gateways in order to collect time-series data streams. Furthermore, the application of data stream analysis at the Board/Gateway level (edge computing) will be explored.

 The course in cyber-physical systems and IoT will permit the learner to
- Analyse the application of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, and industrial networks in a relevant industrial context
- Specify and configure a suitable distributed embedded system for a data acquisition application in industry
- Program an application to acquire and log time-series data streams, with appropriate timestamps, data cleansing and formatting
- Program an edge-based data analysis algorithm to provide condensed information for transfer
- Implement an application to capture and analyse relevant real-time industry data, relevant to the learners' practice
