Sensor Networks


Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón, Exercise Tutor: Chia-Yen Shih
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 use real sensor nodes to understand better the effects of real-world phenomena in aspects like link quality, localization, etc.

The exercises will provide hand-on experience in developing applications with wireless sensor nodes (MEMSIC TelosB) using TinyOS. For more information about the content of the exercises, please contact Chia-Yen Shih.

The first lecture will take place in Room BC 319 at 12:00h on Monday , October 11, 2010. The access key to the moodle page of the lecture/lab will be announced in the first lecture.
