Admission information


This laboratory on Wireless Sensor Networks offers students a theoretical and practical introduction to the concepts of wireless networks, focusing on sensor network aspects. The course consists of three different components: 1. Lecture hours: Introduction and theory of wireless sensor nodes and networks, MAC layer protocols and routing algorithms 2. Practical introduction to and programming of sensor network nodes 3. Hands-on sessions: implementation of an application of a wireless sensor network by the teams In the course, we use dedicated sensor node hardware. In small groups of two students each, the participants will first have the opportunity to familiarize with the sensor hardware during several hours of introductory programming sessions in the first phase of the course. In the second phase of the course, each group applies the acquired knowledge by realizing an individual project using the available sensor hardware.
