Sensor Networks / Kommunikationsnetze 2

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón, Exercises: Songwei Fu 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 […]


Wireless Sensor Network Seminar

Tutor: Dr. Matteo Ceriotti Computing and communicating devices become smaller and smaller; they moved from desks to everybody’s pocket; ultimately, they become embedded in the environment that surrounds our everyday life. This vision has been addressed under different names, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) being one of them. As this happens, we become capable of […]


Case Study: Location-based Services

Lecturer: Dr. Marcus Handte This case study covers fundamental concepts related to the development of location-based services from a theoretical and practical perspective. During the first half of the semester, basic models, algorithms, data structures and applications are introduced in a series of lectures with associated programming exercises. During the […]
