About the course
The course contains both theoretical and practical components. The theoretical part covers basic Internet communication, Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). It also covers the Eclipse Arrowhead framework as an example.
The practical part uses a development board with a modern microcontroller that measures temperature (among others). The students connect securely over the Internet the development board to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and are able to subscribe to the sensor values in a web browser. No prior programming knowledge is required.
