Internet of Things (IoT) describes the concept of connecting things (any objects) over the internet. These things have embedded sensors and actuators which aid in the collection/ generation of the data and also perform certain actions through the actuators. The connection between things in IoT can be direct between the things or between physical objects and a back-ned data center in cloud or in the premises. This course gives a detailed introduction to the IoT architecture and the components in a IoT system. This course enables ones to see the complete picture of the functioning of an IoT system, i.e., the connection of sensors/ things, data generation, processing, storage, analytics and deriving meaningful inference or action from the data.
