Subject code: CC5903
Sensor devices are the foundation of any Internet of Things (IoT) system. This subject presents a hands-on introduction to sensors and the embedded computing systems that drive them. Students will develop software for IoT edge devices, specifically focussing on data acquisition from sensors. Students will also learn the operational mechanisms, strengths, and limitations of commonly used sensors, how to calibrate sensor devices and how to interpret technical specifications.
- Explain the operational principles, benefits and limitations of commonly used sensor technologies
- Select and justify sensors for given application scenarios, taking into account the relevant technical, economic and social constraints
- Design and implement software in order to interface with sensor and communication modules
- Communicate the project and its findings to a variety of audiences through advanced written and oral English language skills in a variety of media.
This is one of the interdisciplinary subjects studied in the online Graduate Diploma of Data Science (Internet of Things).
