WHAT IS THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)?

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) is the concept associated with devices becoming connected as the cost of sensors and connectivity continues to plunge. Connected devices can be as simple as a toaster signaling its status, or as complex as a jet engine streaming real-time updates during flight. More than 50 billion IoT connected devices are expected by 2020.



WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

The program is designed for engineering leaders, designers, and practitioners working in a range of sectors, including corporate R&D labs, manufacturing, and/or consumer goods.


PROGRAM TOPICS:

  • What is the Internet of Things?
  • Innovation at the intersection of design and technology
  • Design thinking and human-centered design processes
  • Emerging IoT technologies related to wearables, consumer products, and infrastructure
  • Hands-on rapid interaction prototyping workshop
  • Industry Examples

OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS:

Advances in design are often intricately interwoven with advances in fundamental technologies, and the most iconic products excel in both areas. This two-day course provides a framework for thinking about the co-evolution of design and technology, with a focus on emerging trends in the Internet of Things.

Leading faculty from the College of Engineering will lecture on IoT topics, explaining how this emerging technology is changing the product and service landscape from the body to the city, and why a human-centered design approach is essential in deploying new technologies successfully.

Industry experts will complement faculty-led sessions with case studies illustrating these concepts. In workshop sessions, participants will have a chance to bring ideas together through rapid prototyping.
