Alessandro Beghi

Tullio Vardanega

The Internet of Things extends digital connectivity to physical entities and real-world situations, giving rise to extraordinary opportunities to conceive, realize, and deliver value-added services including cognitive and life-support aid, smart appliances, remote monitoring, guidance and control systems.
PhD students in the BMCS program should be familiar with the IoT concept, its foundations for vision and architecture, and its use prospects.

The course will have two parts of 8 hours each, plus a public, collaborative and interactive exam session that will be included in the total hour count.
One part of the course, delivered by prof. Beghi, will present use scenarios of IoT services and applications (in particular, in the Smart Manufacturing and Smart Cities settings), focusing on the use-case concept and bringing forward lessons learned in their realization.
The other part, delivered by prof. Vardanega, will illustrate the origin of the IoT concept, and the relation that it has to the Internet that we know.

Course requirements (if any)
The course intentionally places no restrictions on the background knowledge of participants.

Exam modality
The students will be requested to work in pairs (or at most in groups of three members), with different curricular background. The instructors will suggest a number of recent scientific publications that expand on scenarios of use of IoT. Each student group will study a publication of their interest and will deliver a public presentation that illustrates the contribution of that work and discusses its merit and limitations. All student groups shall also actively participate in the presentation of others, by offering comments, observations, and opinions on the objects of discussion.
