Paper accepted at the 26th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN 2017)

Paper Details: Hugues Smeets, Matteo Ceriotti, Eduardo Ferrera, Pedro José Marrón: Replacing Free-Ranging Robots with Alternative Mobile Nodes Abstract: A wide range of mobile devices, e.g., wireless sensor nodes, RFID tags and smartphones, gradually coalesces into the Internet of Things (IoT). Debugging and optimizing such systems is challenging and necessary […]


Paper accepted at the 8th International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN 2017)

Paper details Ngewi Fet, Marcus Handte und Pedro José Marrón: Autonomous Signal Source Displacement Detection and Recalibration of Fingerprinting-based Indoor Localization Systems Abstract: Fingerprinting-based indoor localization systems rely on stable signal distribution characteristics of fixed signal sources for location estimation. However, indoor environments are not static and changes in the […]


Microcomputer Systems Lab

Tutor: Marcus Handte The lab extends the lecture Microcomputer Systems with practical experiments. During the experiments, participants of the lab will implement small programs for an ATMEL micro-controller using assembler and C. The lab provides participants with hands-on experience on software development for simple embedded systems. At the end of the […]


Embedded Systems

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón This lecture and the associated practical exercises convey the fundamentals of system-level application development. The lecture provides a brief review of embedded systems applications and hardware. Furthermore, it provides an in-depth discussion of various operating system abstractions such as processes, threads, IPC, etc. At […]


Wireless Sensor Network Application Development Project

Tutor: Dr. Chia-Yen Shih Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been widely deployed in many application domains including environmental monitoring, surveillance, healthcare, automation control and more. A typical WSN consists of a set of low-powered and inexpensive embedded sensor devices with specific sensing modalities and with computation as well as communication […]


Context Recognition with Mobile Devices Project

Tutor: Marcus Handte  More and more mobile devices are equipped with a broad variety of sensors such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, video cameras, and microphones. To provide better task support, future applications will have to use these sensors to determine the state of their environment unobtrusively. As a simple example consider smart […]

Sensor Networks

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón, Exercises: Robert Sauter This lecture describes the fundamental concepts of sensor networks and how they differ from traditional networked systems that do not take energy and resource constraints into account. During the experiments, the students will deal with real-world deployments of sensor networks and […]


Context Recognition Seminar

Tutor: Marcus Handte  Nowadays, most devices are equipped with differnt types of networking technology and a broad spectrum of sensors. Examples include gyroscopes, accelerometers, cameras, and microphones. To provide better task support, future applications will have to use the sensors of multiple devices to determine the state of their environment in an automated fashion. This requires novel software […]
