Présentation :

During the last decade we have experienced the emergence of a new paradigm called Internet of Things (IoT) in which smart and connected objects cooperatively construct a (wireless) network of things. Those things can be deployed or embedded nearly everywhere, at homes, universities, cities, agricultural fields, in the sea, even in the human body or any other natural or man-made object. With accelerated deployment of tens of billion of those connected "things", the IoT is transforming the future industries (i.e., Industry 4.0) into large economic opportunities, and eventually into the development of the future Smart Cities. Indeed, industrial and urban IoTs are designed to support the Smart City vision, which aims at employing the most advanced communication technologies (i.e., short and long range communications) to support added-value services for the citizens

To this end, wireless industrial communications emerged to support the previously presented visions of future industries and smart cities. For instance, several short range standards emerged during the previous years, such as WirelessHART (for wireless industrial buses), low power standards such as ISA100.11a and IEEE802.15.4-2015 (i.e., by utilizing the IETF 6TiSCH architecture). Furthermore, several long range solutions appeared in the community, such as Sigfox that connects low-energy objects such as electricity meters, smartwatches, and washing machines, LPWAN a wireless network designed to allow long range communications at a low bit rate among things.

In this inter-semester, the students will have the opportunity get some flavor from future Industrial IoT standards (e.g., LoRa, 6TiSCH, TSCH), along with large number hands-on during the dedicated TPs with support and guidelines both from industrial and academic experts. Moreover, the students will have the occasion to follow talks (and demonstration) as well as to meet researchers from leading IoT industries, such as Sigfox, Itron LACROIX sofrel.

Objectifs (obsolète):

During this course, the students should get a notion of what is the Internet of Things, and why it is the game changer in 21st century in the area of wireless networks.

Then, we will provide the necessary background on how these things communicated between themselves and across the existing network infrastructure such as the Internet. Basically, layers 2 and 3, MAC and routing, respectively.

Finally, through series of presentations and talks from industrial partners, the students will realize why Industries need Internet of Things to achieve the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0.
