Sin requisitos previos.
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
Basics Competences Knowledge related to control engineering techniques that can be applied to the IoT field Capacity to apply these knowledge to the specificity of the model General Competences To identify the different control methods available for IoT and their advantages and disadvantages Capacities to identify, define and formulate the control problems related to IoT applications. This capacity includes the assessment of all the factors at stake, not only at technical level but environmental and civil responsibility. Capacity to publicly communicate the concepts, developments and results of control engineering results related to IoT, adapted to the specificity of all audiences. Capacity to apply the acquired knowledge for solving problems in a wide variety of multidisciplinary new situations, with the ability to integrate knowledge. RESULTS OF THE LEARNING PROCESS The results of the learning process will be: - Capacity of analysis and synthesis for advance control systems. - Capacity to design a system of small or medium complexity and its interaction with the environment. - Knowing and applying the techniques of automatic learning in IoT.
