Digital Systems for Humans - Technological Challenges in IoT (DS4H-IoT)

Pedagogical Approach for this course is learning-by-doing and then conceptualizing .

After a brief introduction, the first step of this course is practicing with use cases and exercices on a specific IoT Infrastructure called YoIoT. The second step is generalising some concepts towards an abstract representation to reason on other cases.

Short Introduction to IoT infrastructure

IoT Infrastructure Principes

Example of commercial solution using IoT infrastructure : HDSN (see Demonstrator)

  • From Real IoT Sensors (IoT Level) to a datacenter in a Cloud provider (Cloud Level)
  • WebApp for user access to this smart home information
  • Web Service for software access to this smart home information

Your own IoT Infrastructure (YoIoT) (See demonstration)

In order to provide a complete IoT/Edge/Cloud infrastructure for the practical part of this course we chose various free integrated solutions in the smart home application domain. Then the overall architecture consists in:

  • Various sensors / actuators and sometimes more sophisticated smart devices, using Zwave and EnOcean standards for communication protocol
  • Gateways based on RaspberryPi and the OpenHab software connected to Zwave/EnOcean but also wifi/ethernet and internet on the local netwark (LAN)
  • PCs using Node-Red software environment as the first level for programming IoT application
  • Remote Cloud services like OpenWeatherMap, ThingSpeak, Google Storage … (Cloud for SAAS)

YoIoT: Your own IoT Infrastructure for Tutorials

YoIoT is a technological example of an IoT infrastructure with only free software products !

Some materials about YoIoT deployment and manipulation can be find in IoT4SME like iot4smes_iot_demonstrator_uns_v1.3.pdf.

How to install YoIoT

See guideline here

Comment : Home I/O installation is optional. It depends on your computer skills …

From Edge to Cloud in YoIoT

RaspberryPi/PC (Edge Level) to ThingSpeak (Cloud Level) thanks to Web Service - HTTP communication protocol

Required Knowledge:
  • What is a Web Service ?
  • What is ThingSpeak ?
  • How to access to a Web Service with Node-Red ?
Tutorial : How to use Node-Red to access to Web Services ?

exercice 1 : send some values to a ThingSpeak Channel with Node-Red and visualize the result on the Web exercice 2 : get some information (like a temperature in a given city) from one Web service like OpenWeatherMap and see the result with Node-Red debug. exercice 3 : after giving a

A completet Application in YoIoT

Required Knowledge:

Nothing more …


First design and developp an application with these functionalities :

Technical specifications:

  • Get temperature value from a connected sensor in openhab
  • Display the evolution of this temperature in a chart in ThingSpeak
  • Get temperature value in Biot thanks to OpenWeatherApp Web Service
  • Display the evolution of this temperature in a chart in ThingSpeak
  • Compute the difference between them and display the evolution of this value

Question : Imagine you can get 100.000 measures like that in a Smart City. Do you have some applications in mind?

Optional Project

This project aims to use a IoT devices simulator in a Smart Home Context. To use it, you need Home I/O installation (the simulator) and to prepare a software configuration(see installation section above) to be able to access to the simulator with MQTT protocol.

After that you can collect some data from virtual sensors in the simulator, send some commands to various actuators like lights, windows etc., move accross the virtual smart home scene and interact with virtual devices.

For the most advanced student, feel free to imagine interesting applications and developp your own project in Smart Home.


Back to IoT infrastructure concepts

Main concepts

  • IoT Infrastructure architecture : IoT Devices/Edge/Cloud
  • IoT are devices using sensors but also actuators to perceive and act in the real physical environment
  • Edge consists in a set of Gateway and/or local servers that exchange information to/from the IoT Devices from/to the Cloud, sometimes after local data processing
  • Edge Advantages :
    • Resilience: data processing doesn't depend on the Internet connection
  • Edge Disadvantages :
    • Costs for large-scale IoT system: required local resources are more and more expensive (more gateways, more servers, sometimes local datacenters, technicians for maintenance …)
    • See simple costs model depending on the number of clients
  • Cloud provides web services but also data processing, data storage or even virtual machines
    • we distinguish three kinds of Cloud Software Infrastructures
  • SAAS: Software as a service (SaaS)
  • PAAS: Platform as a service (SaaS)
  • IAAS: Infrastructure as a service (SaaS)
  • Cost Model :
