The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of benefits for industry, energy and utility companies, municipalities, healthcare, and consumers. Data can be collected in extraordinary volume and detail regarding almost anything worth measuring, such as public health and safety, the environment, industrial and agricultural production, energy, and utilities. New data analysis tools have been optimized for the massive amounts of data that IoT produces, enabling wellinformed decisions to be made quickly.
In this course, you will learn how to apply Internet of Things technologies to solve real-world problems.
- Plan an IoT implementation.
- Construct and program an IoT device.
- Communicate with an IoT device using wired and wireless connections.
- Process sensor input and control an actuator on an IoT device.
- Manage security, privacy, and safety risks on IoT projects.
Manage an IoT prototyping and development project throughout the development lifecycle.
This course is designed for IT professionals with baseline skills in computer hardware, software support, and development who want to learn how to design, develop, implement, operate, and manage Internet of Things devices and related systems. The student is interested in learning more about embedded systems, microcontroller programming, IoT security, and the development life cycle for IoT projects.
While students will gain hands-on experience assembling a prototype IoT device and using software development tools, these activities are closely guided, so previous experience in electronics assembly and programming are not required. This course prepares students for taking the CertNexus® Certified Internet of Things (IoT) Practitioner (Exam ITP-110).
To ensure your success in this course, you should be an experienced computer user who is comfortable setting up and configuring computers and electronic devices. You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking either of the following Official CompTIA® Content course offerings available from Logical Operations: CompTIA® IT Fundamentals® (Exam FC0-U51) CompTIA® IT Fundamentals® (Exam FC0-U61)
