Project Group: Smart Environments

Tutor: Dr. Matteo Ceriotti

The Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical System technologies are enabling the embedding of processing, communication and sensing capabilities in everyday environment. This project group targets the use of such technology to prototype an environment able to understand the events happening in it

After a series of lectures and tutorials in which the basic protocols, algorithms and application scenarios are introduced, the participants will give a talk on specific techniques of relevance for the project. In particular, the attendees will learn about MAC, routing, application layer protocols specific to low-power networks. In addition, different approaches will be presented to detect events happening in an environment. Among others, radio tomographic imaging will be presented as a mean to track persons in an environment without the need to carry any device.

Afterwards, the participants will design, implement and experiment with a practical system in which the acquired knowledge will be exploited to prototype a smart environment able to identify persons and their activities in an indoor environment.

This project group is only suitable for AI-SE master students and it will be taught in English. The number of participants in this course ranges between 6 and 10. The admission to this course is managed centrally.
