Seminar Technische Informatik on Internet of Things & Security
In large part, the Internet of Things (IoT) will consist of interconnecting low-end devices with very small memory capacity (a few kBytes) and limited energy consumption (1000 times less than a RaspberryPi).
The IoT promises a new world of applications, but also brings up specific challenges in terms of programmability, energy efficiency, networking and security.
After an introductory session at the start of the term, MSc students will pick a topic related to current technologies in the field of Internet of Things & Security, and write a report (IEEE LaTex template, 12 A4 pages including figures and references, single column, 1.5 spacing, 11-point font) discussing corresponding questions. At the end of the term, the participants present their results in the form a short talk (20 minutes + 10 minutes Q&A) in a meeting, which will also include cross-reviewing of student's reports. During the term, there will be deadlines for status reports, but no weekly meetings of the complete seminar group.
