The course analyses the new technologies that are emerging for the implementation of the Internet of Things in a large variety of complex environments. The course addresses the Hardware Subsystem (dedicated design of antennas and radiofrequency circuits, choice of microprocessors and radios, study of intersystem compatibility) and the Physical Layer Subsystem (choice of the modulation scheme, the wireless standard and analysis of ad hoc dedicated communication schemes). As a case study, the techniques to deploy the of wireless sensor networks, RFID tags and Internet gateways in jet engines, snow, ice and water, ground and mines, human and animal bodies, dangerous environment (within fire, gassed, polluted premises) will be introduced.
The course analyses the new radio technologies that are emerging for the implementation of the Internet of Things in a large variety of complex environments. The course addresses the Hardware Subsystem (dedicated design of antennas and radiofrequency circuits, choice of microprocessors and radios, study of intersystem compatibility), the Physical Layer Subsystem (choice of the modulation scheme, the wireless channel and analysis of ad hoc dedicated communication schemes), the MAC Sublayer Subsystem (medium access protocols suitable for IoT needs). The main IopT wireless standards (IEEE 802.11ah, IEEE 802.15.1 Low Energy, IEEE 802.15,.4, LPWAN, LoRa and LoRaWAN, SigFox, RFID) are analyzed and compared to ad-hoc solutions. Every year a few case-studies involving the realization of wireless sensor networks in non-standard environments are presented by the lecturer or students (e.g., agriculture, automotive, jet engines, snow, ice and water, ground and mines, human and animal bodies).

The course is mainly organised through theoretical lectures. Short conferences and seminars given by external experts can be organised, Students may be requested to work on specific subjects, through bibliographic searches and scientific reviews.
The course is mainly organised through theoretical lectures. Short conferences and seminars eventually given by external experts can be organised, During the course, students are requested to analyze a specific IoT wireless subject with a choice between two alternatives: 1. Experimental Project, through the realization of a hardware or network or software component of an IoT system chosen by the instructor 2. Design Project, through bibliographic searches and scientific reviews on an IoT subject chosen by the instructor The execution of an Experimental Project or Design Project is not compulsory.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato progettuale individuale;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Individual project;
One esperimental project assigned at the very beginning of the course, to be completed by the end Weight: 50% Public presentation of the project Weight: 20% Oral exam on the theoretical subjects Weight: 30%
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Individual project;
The exam evaluates the knowledge acquired by the student in all fields described in the Course program. Grades are expressed as a part of 30. Exam is passed if the grade is at least 18/30. Every student is interviewed about the theoretical subjects taught during the course. If the student has chosen a project (Experimental or Design), she/he is requested to submit a report and to give a presentation, which are evaluated as part of the Exam. The oral exam is consequently formed by an interview on any theoretical subject taught during the course, eventually combined with a Project presentation. Student's preparation is evaluated by means of theoretical questions as well as the request to apply the theoretical issues to real applications. Independently on the kind of project chosen by the student, the student is requested to show her/his ability to address a technical problem and her/his capability to obtain a suitable result. During the Project presentation, the capability to present, synthesize, comment the obtained results will be evaluated. The oral exam and the project presentation are given in class. All students are invited to attend to others' project presentations. The report must be uploaded as pdf. The grade is assigned according to the following rules. If the student has chosen the experimental project option: Experimental project assigned within the first month of the course, to be completed by the end Weight: 60% Public presentation of the project Weight: 20% Oral exam on the theoretical subjects Weight: 20% If the student has chosen the design project option: Design project assigned within the first month of the course, to be completed by the end Weight: 50% Public presentation of the project Weight: 20% Oral exam on the theoretical subjects Weight: 30% If the student has not chosen neither the experimental, nor the design project: Oral exam on the theoretical subjects Weight: 100%
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
