Internet of Things (IoT) Teaching Solution – IoT Sensors and Power Management

Designed to equip students with the knowledge on how to characterize the power consumption of IoT devices onboard controllers, sensors and wireless modules. Students will understand the principles of power management and will be able to characterize micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) devices. With teaching slides and a training kit (development kit, sensor devices, MEMS pressure sensor, XBee ZigBee® kit, lab sheets with model answers and problem-based assignments) included, this solution is a useful resource for lecturers.


Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to:

  • Explore the critical selection parameters of sensors for IoT applications
  • Discover the principles of commonly used sensor technologies
  • Evaluate performance of commonly used sensor modules
  • Understand the design considerations in IoT applications (power management)
  • Evaluate and validate power consumption of IoT devices and the sub-circuits using industrial-grade test and measurement instruments such as a digital multimeter (DMM) and oscilloscope
