Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

June 5, 2018 - Georgia Tech-Savannah recently conducted a new Internet of Things (IoT) class for a major government organization May 7-9, 2018. The two-day, hands on class taught employees how to build their own data collection devices and the implications of IoT in cybersecurity.

“This is a local Georgia Tech-Savannah product that can be replicated for any company looking to explore and apply the Internet of Things and demystify data collection,” said Russell Clark, senior research scientist and director of mobile technology and IoT programs at Georgia Tech-Savannah. “What we’re doing with these custom courses, and the whole research area, is helping our community discover the benefits IoT can create for our homes, businesses, community, and society.”

The Internet of Things means that all of the items we interact with in our daily lives can potentially be connected to the internet. The new custom courses are designed to focus on client-specific needs and interests. From supply chain logistics to health and wellness, the Georgia Tech instructors have the expertise and capability to apply IoT to different industries.

The course content includes lectures but more than half of the students’ time provides hands-on interaction with these new technologies. Participants learn to use the technology to connect cameras, ultrasonics, and temperature sensors which collects data that is aggregated into a mobile app for viewing and use. By building the devices and apps from the ground up, they understand how the technology works and what future implications it has for their company.
