Master Project: Augmented Reality Navigation

Tutor: Marcus Handte  With their broad variety of sensors and their ability to render 3D models in real time, modern smart phones are an interesting platform to support augmented reality visualizations. In order to overlay a virtual 3D world on top of camera images of the physical world, it is necessary […]

Autonomous Robot Navigation Seminar

Tutor: Eduardo Ferrera Nowadays, mobile robots are used in many applications, such as rescue missions, surveillance or people assistance. In these applications, robots usually need to operate in unknown environments, so they need to obtain information with their sensors and take intelligent decisions. In general, they proceed in a loop with […]

Wireless Sensor Network Application Development Project

Tutor: Dr. Matteo Ceriotti 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 […]

Wireless Sensor Network Seminar

Tutor: Dr. Chia-Yen Shih This seminar aims to familiarize student with important research topics in Wireless Sensor Networks. The covered topics include: routing, localization, sensing coverage and communication connectivity, multi-channel communication, sensor networks simulation, modeling techniques on radio models, mobility models and sensing modalities, camera sensor networks. This seminar is offered as […]

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 […]

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 […]

Operating Systems Design and Implementation

Lecturer and exercises: Prof. Rasit Eskicioglu (University Manitoba, Canada) This is a senior level course that provides an in-depth examination of design and implementation of today`s operating systems. The course is organized in three parts: lectures, labs and readings. The first part of the lectures will introduce a simple, but functional […]

Sensor Networks

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 […]
