CS490K: Internet of Things (IoT) (Fall 2014)
Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging area of information and
communications technology (ICT) involving many disciplines of
computer science and engineering including sensors/acutators,
networking, server platforms, data analytics and smart applications.
This course will be very useful to students whether they intend to
work in industry after graduation or to receive further education
in graduate schools, as this course combines all the things students
have learned in their undergraduate program. This course aims at
introducing the latest technologies, protocols, standards in IoT.
The course will cover all important aspects of IoT and students will
have a valuable experience of developing smart applications for a

Suggested References and Applications:
- Evaluation on each student will be done based on the following:
- Assignments - 40%
- Term Project - 50%
- Class Participation - 10%
- Note: the above evaluation scheme may change slightly during the course.
There will be a major term project (worth 50% of the final mark) on IoT.
The project topics will be discussed in class. Students will be asked to prepare, present and submit materials
related to the project throughout the course.
- Project Proposal Preparation
- Project Proposals (due: Oct. 31, 2014)
- Requirements & High-Level Design Document (due: Nov. 6, 2014, in-class presentation: Nov. 11, 2014)
- Detailed Design Document (due: Nov. 18, 2014, in-class presentation: Nov. 18, 2014)
- Demo & Final Document including Implementation Document (due: Dec. 16, 2014, in-class presentation: Dec. 16, 2014)
- There will be a few assignments (worth 40% of the final mark).
- Note: the above assignment schedule may change slightly during the course.
- Late assignments may be handed in, but there will be
a penalty of 20% of the mark for assignments turned in less than one day
late, and an additional penalty of 10% for each day thereafter.
- Cheating Policy -- Cheating will not be tolerated in this course.
Students are encouraged discuss things related to courses and assignments
but the materials handed in must be his/her own. The maximum penalty for
the first offense is for the assignment in question. For
subsequent offenses may result in an automatic failure of the course
and possibly other academic punishments.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and to participate
in discussions during lectures. 10% of the final mark is assigned for good
and active class participation.
