What is meant by the Internet of Things? It existed long before it was defined in this way and crosses our daily lives more than we imagine, precisely because it concerns the whole world of real objects connected to the Internet.

From thermostats to clocks, passing through numerous types of sensors and detectors (brightness, humidity, environment and territory), the technology that makes devices interconnected pervades everyday life and promises giant leaps. The evolution of the use of the net is making things endowed with their own intelligence, capable of transmitting data and receiving information. The sectors smart home e smart city are currently the most consolidated, for example through video surveillance and security applications used in homes, home automation systems and traffic monitoring in large cities. But the IoT also finds its way into the manufacturing, automotive and biomedical industries, not to mention the field of robotics.  

This is why theUniversità Campus Bio-Medico di Roma has included the IoT System Design teaching within the e-health curriculum of the Master's Degree Course in IngBiomedical engineering. Characterized by a teach approaching by doing, in which students are mainly engaged in design activities in the laboratory, the course aims to train students ingengineers capable of designing and developing devices, sensors and systems, distributed and interconnected via the internet. A proposal supported by the University's research activity, which boasts important scientific results in reference application fields such as biometrics, telemedicine and food production monitoring.
