Internet of Things (IoT)

What is IoT?

Cyber-physical systems (Internet of Things) interact both with the real world, through sensors and actuators, and with computer networks. This discipline Integrates a variety of computing, sensing and electronic technologies to develop complete solutions that include aspects of system and software design, networks, security, user-experience and electro-mechanical systems.

Key Topics

  • Cyber-Physical computer development environments and languages
  • Real-time systems
  • Cyber-Physical systems (CPS)
  • Sensors and actuators for CPS
  • Small networks
  • Cyber-security for CPS
  • Human-Computer Interaction for CPS
