About this course

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a bit of a buzzword in recent years, but what’s it all really about? In this course, developed by UTS Industry Professor Emmanuel Mastio and CEO of the Internet of Things Alliance Australia Frank Zeichner, we take you behind the hype to show you the technology behind the IoT and the conditions that make for useful IoT applications.

Learn about sensors and actuators, the building blocks of the IoT, as well as the technological and historical conditions that have led to the expansion of the IoT. What will be the next IoT breakthrough? Where will it happen? After working through this course, you’ll be better prepared to answer these questions.

You will get to see existing examples of the IoT in action and develop a framework for seeing the world through an IoTreadiness lens, which will help you and your organisation better prepare for an IoT future.
