Wireless Sensor Network Application Development Project

Tutor: Dr. Matteo Ceriotti, 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 capabilities. These devices collaborate with each other by exchanging data through energy-efficient, short-range radio. The application provides its services by manipulating the sensory data collected by the deployed WSN.

In this project, you will learn how to develop an integrated application providing services by making use of a WSN. The topics that will be covered include:

  • Wireless sensor system programming
  • Sensory data collection
  • Data delivery and communication through IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee networks
  • Interfacing between the user and the deployed WSN

For further information about the project, please contact Dr. Matteo Ceriotti at matteo.ceriotti@uni-due.de.

The kickoff meeting for this project will take place in Room SA126 on Tuesday, 15.4.2014 between 13.00h and 14.30h. Participation in this meeting is mandatory.
