A high level view of IOTs, design of smart objects that provide collaboration and ubiquitous services will be explored. Design for longevity/energy efficiency will be highlighted. Step by step system design will be introduced. Small video chips that will allow students to prototype will be displayed. At the end of the course, the student is expected to make the right choice of hardware, software and protocols for the proposed application.
