The subject covers knowledge and skills essential for integrating heterogeneous subsystems into a smart system. The subject will adopt a systems engineering approach to examine current and emerging trends, key techniques and strategies for developing system and network integration solutions. Students will be exposed to integration challenges such as legacy integration, human-system integration and system of system integration. The subject will cover knowledge and skills on commonly used IOT protocols and industrial connectivity standards and fieldbuses, as well as relevant hardware and software interfaces suitable for such integration. A mini-project will provide opportunity for the students to apply their learning to integrate heterogeneous subsystems.
Students will be able to:
- Develop human machine interfaces using unified architecture protocols for monitoring and control.
- Integrate various corporate systems to leverage on data visibility across multiple sites, using industrial connectivity standards and fieldbuses with suitable hardware and software interfaces
