Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are pervasive computing systems consisting of smart sensors embedded in physical environments. WSNs 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. WSNs is an exciting research area with many promising applications, such as health monitoring, smart home, and industrial process automation. This course will study cutting-edge technologies that deal with various aspects of wireless sensor networks. Students will perform hands-on C programming under Linux, read research papers, and design WSNs system.
