Wireless sensor networks are pervasive computing systems consisting of smart sensors embedded in physical environments. Wireless sensor networks provide a basis for Internet of Things that challenges many classical approaches to distributed computing and networking. Embedded operating systems, wireless network protocols, and approaches to power management, real-time, and middleware services fundamentally change when confronted with this new environment. Wireless sensor network is an exciting research area with many promising applications, such as health monitoring, smart home, smart energy, and industrial process automation. This course will study cutting-edge research papers that deal with various aspects of wireless sensor networks. Students will perform hands-on, system projects using smart phones or motes (tiny devices consisting of sensors, radios, and microprocessors).

Course Announements, Lecture Slides, and Grades can be found in myCourses.
