The purpose of this course is to describe and understand what IoT is, to know its uses and to learn how to develop different process or service data acquisition applications.

Because IoT is the Internet of things: having electronic devices collecting data and grouping them in a space to analyze both the data collected instantly and its evolution over time. And for sure, no matter what field of work we are in, with direct and up-to-date data that generates valid information, it will be easier to make the best decision.

In the current framework of digitization and Industry 4.0, new communication and data capture systems appear that allow us to know much better and at the moment the use made of many services, spaces or the state of many devices : How many people have entered the establishment, what are the busiest times? Do you need to water the city gardens? What is the current production of our manufacturing lines? How many hours did the air conditioning work today? Will the machine bearings need to be changed soon?


This course aims to present what IoT devices are and how they are applied. Electronic devices and their application will be discussed, but always as information collection tools to improve the processes and services we are assigned in our professional role.

Therefore, we want to offer a general description of the different aspects necessary so that the participant can understand the implications of the Internet of Things (IoT) in companies, as well as in their processes and in their business models.

During the course, the methodology for identifying the necessary data and the deployment of devices and connection architecture, collection systems and data visualization tools to generate information will be presented. Success cases will be seen in the sessions and attendees will develop use cases with devices and programming tools in the classroom.

The Internet of Things (IoT) can allow us to get to know our process better, to have immediate and truthful information about it to improve productivity in our company and a data history to apply machine learning systems.

Who is the target audience?

This course is aimed at those responsible for processes and services in any public or private, industrial or commercial field who need to know and improve quality, costs, productivity, OEE, energy consumption, resource needs, use of the service…

It is also aimed at people interested in IoT applications and who want to know the way to start IoT: the connection of sensors, the selection of electronic devices and the acquisition and visualization of the collected data

It is not required to have specific computer programming knowledge (although we will see examples), but computational processes will be analyzed: it will be programmed through the Node-Red low code tool; and you will see storage databases. In both cases, a practical introduction will be given.
