Proseminar EIM - Internet of Things Domains

In this proseminar students will be able to explore different domains of the Internet of Things (IoT). After having explored a specific domain, the participants can create a poster and present their findings in a final poster session.
Kick-off meeting: 18.10.2017 15:00-16:00 A119.

Kick-off meeting: 23.10.2019 15:00-16:00 A119


The aim of the Proseminar is to teach the principles of academic work. Therefore, students will work in-depth on a specific topic and report their findings in form of an academic report. Additionally, students have the chance to creatively present their findings in a poster.


The Proseminar will address the topic of IoT Domains (smart buildings, transportation, e-health). Participants in the Proseminar will select a specific IoT domain and explore it in depth and present their findings to the other participants of the Proseminar. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of a specific IoT domain as well as a broad understanding of other IoT domains.

The deliverables of the Proseminar will be twofold. Firstly, a research report on a specific domain must be created. Secondly, the participants of the Proseminar will create a poster which summarises the key findings of their selected IoT domain which will be presented to the Proseminar group and supervisors in a poster session. The posters created in this Proseminar will be published on the EIM Website. The best posters may also be printed and displayed on the campus.

The tasks to be performed in the Proseminar are as follows:

  1. Select, explore, analyse and report on a specific IoT domain in depth.
  2. Create a research report on your findings.
  3. Create a poster summarising your IoT domain.
  4. Present your poster in a poster session.


Students must be present in all meetings. The following things must be worked on:

  1. Literature Spreadsheet of the IoT domain.
  2. Intermediate feedback session.
  3. Academic report on the respective IoT domain (12-15 pages).
  4. Poster, presenting the IoT domain.
  5. Poster session


Each student will work on a specific IoT domain or subdomain. The available domains are as follows:

  • Buildings
  • Energy
  • Consumer & Home
  • Healthcare & Life Science
  • Industrial
  • Transportation
  • Retail
  • Security/ Public Safety
  • IT & Networks


IoT Domains



The topics will be assigned in the first meeting.
