The Internet of Things (IoT) vision has been harnessed to develop a motivational curriculum with the objective of accelerating learning in this transformational new field of engineering. This IoT curriculum focuses on the technology and the broad societal impact of IoT with instruction and hands-on development. This is an open source development with the objective for creation of an international community that will expand and shape the curriculum. Most importantly, an IoT platform integrating the state of the art processor, sensor, and wireless network interfaces is required. In partnership with STMicroelectronics, we have developed a curriculum based on the STMicroelectronics SensorTile IoT platform providing an affordable kit for every student along with open source, powerful development tools. Rapid immersion in C code development is designed to accelerate learning while developing an understanding of IoT technology and the SensorTile platform. Large classes of students in their first university session and without prior computing experience have been entirely successful in hands-on project development missions. This presentation will describe the new curriculum, the SensorTile IoT platform, the Tutorial sequence, new embedded machine learning tools and methods that have been introduced for scaling enrollment to large class size for courses supporting Freshman through Senior capstone design offerings.
During the expo hall hours, meet with STMicroelectronics at our booth during the 2018 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition. This three-day annual forum has over 4,000 leaders in the field from more than 500 university and college engineering schools, including professors, deans, instructors, and students, to present papers, exchange ideas, and interact with their colleagues and industry counterparts. The conference features more than 400 technical sessions, with peer-reviewed papers spanning all disciplines of engineering education.
