Developing applications and network protocols for IoT.

  • Course code: FDAT110
  • Course higher education credits: 3.5
  • Graduate school: Computer Science and Engineering
  • Course start: 2017-10-11
  • Course end: 2017-12-31
  • Course is normally given: Next start date will be decided by interest.
  • Language: The course will be given in English
  • Nordic Five Tech (N5T): This course is free for PhD students from N5T universities
The course is centered around two parts: 
Seminar sessions to discuss academic papers and programming exercises to gain hands-on experience in using, developing and evaluating network stacks for IoT. 

For the seminar part, the students will read and discuss papers relevent to a topic important for IoT research in networking, such as the following: 
  • IoT operating systems 
  • Network simulators for IoT IP for low power wireless networks (6lowpan) 
  • Routing in low power wireless networks (RPL) 
  • CSMA/CA and asynchronous power saving MAC protocols 
  • Time synchronized channel hopping (TSCH) and IPv6 over TSCH (6TiSCH) 
  • Synchronous transmissions based protocols and in-network processing (Glossy, Chaos, A2) 
  • IoT Testbeds 

This list can be extended based on the interest and background of the PhD students. 

For the hands-on session, the students participate in actual exercises evaluating and adapting IoT network stacks. 

The exercises shall cover IoT operating systems, network stacks and testbeds deployments.

The literature list will be presented during the first seminar session and will be mainly based on academic papers published in peer-reviewed conferences proceedings.
Main lecturer: Beshr Al Nahas Examiner: Olaf Landsiedel We plan to invite guest lecturers from academia and industry based on interest and availability.
