Presenter: Geoff Sizer, Applied IOT Engineering Community Leader and CEO, Genesys Electronics Design
What you will learn:
· IOT systems architecture from the Cloud to Things, including networking and communications protocols
· hardware and software architectures for Things, mobile devices, communications devices and Cloud based applications
· How to go about defining the architecture of your IOT system and its component parts
Description: Previous webinars of Engineers Australia’s Applied IoT Engineering Community have provided an introduction to the IoT, its real-world applications, and elements of typical IOT systems.
This webinar will extend this knowledge by examining in more detail the architecture of an IOT system, considering Things, their interconnection to the Internet either directly or via local area networks, and how they communicate with each other, with the Cloud and with mobile device applications. This includes device identification an addressing, as well as typical communications protocols which will be encountered
The hardware architecture and implementation of a Thing will be described, including its sensors, actuators, intelligence, identification, communications, powering and housing. The firmware architecture and implementation of Thing firmware will be similarly explored, considering its operating system, sensor and actuator interfacing, communications protocol stack, configuration and health monitoring.
Cloud system architecture will be explored, including Cloud virtual servers, data storage and services offered by vendors such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. This will include the process for establishing a Cloud based server system.
The structure and implementation of mobile device applications on Apple iOS and Android platforms will be described.
