Hands-On IoT Development Using Systems Engineering
This hands-on course will immerse the participant in the design and implementation of both hardware and software subsystems for the design of Internet-of-Things systems. Adriano and Raspberry Pi platforms will be provided. Participants need only a general knowledge of hardware and software systems to benefit from this course.
A system-engineering framework will be used to highlight the need for and use of a proven structured life-cycle approach in IOT product development. Requirements generation, design, testing, debugging, integration, manufacturing and supply chain challenges will be covered. Both commercial and DOD process variations will be highlighted.
A matrix of current life-cycle tools for both hardware-software IOT development and systems engineering will be provided. The importance and application of digital twins, simulation, emulation, prototyping and model-based design-verification will be emphasized. Data analysis, machine learning, edge and cloud-based computing/partitioning and the potential use of algorithm synthesis and artificial intelligence (AI) will be included. Finally, daily exercises and case studies will be used to tie all the concepts, methodologies and tool usage together.
At the end of this course, participants will have hands-on experience with both the hardware and software design of IOT systems. Additionally, participants will understand how the systems engineering approach can be used to manage the complexity of IOT projects as well as handle risk, perform powers-connectivity-data processing trade studies, incorporate reliability and security to deliver a prototype system. Material will also be present that focus on supply chain issues for full production systems.
Attendees will receive a copy of Mr. Blyler’s textbook, “Systems Engineering Management” – 5th Edition (Wiley and Sons, 2017). Attendees will also be provided with an IOT hardware-software development kit.
