General Information

Learning outcomes

The student will have the ability to design and realize applications in the industrial domain from the informatics point of view, by considering algorithms, interface with sensors and actuators, hardware infrastructures, programming interfaces, software architectures and RTOS; he/she will be able to demonstrate a solid knowledge of the architecture of industrial applications and of the hw (computers and interfaces with sensors and actuators) and sw components utilized in such domain; will be aware of issues related to security, cost, power consumption and standards.


Course contents

The course aims to explain the architecture, the technologies and the design methodologies that characterize industrial applications from the informatics point of view. Students will be able to design and realize industrial applications, by considering algorithms, interface with sensors and actuators, hardware infrastructures, programming interfaces, software architectures and RTOS. A significant part of the course is devoted to the development of an industrial application, starting from the ideation up to the implementation on real hardware of sample prototypes.
