Learning Outcomes

Graduates of this module are endued with competences in architectures, protocols, and technologies for connectivity, communication, (semantic) data exchange and (Edge-based) virtualization used within Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use cases. They will further be abIe to identify and systematically solve prospective challenges of future IloT developments and applications.


The module consists of the compulsory lecture "Industrial Internet of Things" (SS) that treats fundamental concepts, architectures, protocols and interfaces of current and future Industrial Internet of Things (lIoT) platforms, based on the converging operational technologies (OT) and information and communication technologies (lCT). This covers a wide spectrum of topics, starting with connectivity, including programmability and communication and ends with semantic interoperability. It is expected that students intensively study material and references to prepare for the lectures and the exam.
