In the winter semester 2020/21, the new stream “HAT” (Home Automation with Internet of Things) was already initially executed in the Master of Business Administration “Applied Business Innovation”. The stream shows the technical fundamentals and possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT). Using the example of Smart Home, sensors and actuators are linked together.
The participants, who mainly started without a technical background, do not learn IoT theoretically, but build a larger case based on the single-board computer Raspberry Pi and various sensors. They read out values, control output devices and graphically create and operate data-based processes using the Node-Red automation tool. Furthermore, the participants learn about and use the MQTT (“Message Queue Telemetry Transport”) protocol.
