As part of the IoTalentum project, a course on "Developing technical skills for IoT" has been delivered by researchers from the University of Salamanca and the Higher Institute of Engineering of Oporto (ISEP). The programme ran from 1 to 10 June 2022 in online mode.
The course covered some basic concepts which are essential to understanding how the IoT (Internet of Things) works. More specifically, concepts such as Industrial IoT (IIoT), cyber-physical systems, Industry 4.0, Edge and Cloud Computing, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and open data platforms.
Introduction to basic IoT concepts
- IoT protocols
- Single board computers
- IoT architectures
- Cyber-physical and semantic-based systems
- Using IoT as an enabler for smart buildings
- Existing platforms and integration (CKAN and Deepint)
- IoT case studies and industrial applications
By acquiring these basic notions, the students’ knowledge regarding the industries in the current technological panorama, will be complete and more precise.
During the course, several practical cases of IoT and applications in the industrial field have been presented.
IoTalentum is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Horizon 2020 European Training Network on the Internet of Things. IoTalentum aims to provide interdisciplinary and comprehensive training and research in IoT: infrastructures, cybersecurity and applications. IoTalentum will train 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), who will be recruited during the implementation of the project, through a unique training programme that includes coordinated research in different fields of IoT.
