Sensor Networks (Main course) AE0B38SES
Credits 5
Semesters Winter
Completion Assessment + Examination
Language of teaching English
Extent of teaching 2P+2L
The course introduces the fundamentals of sensor networks (primarily wireless sensor networks). Emphasis will be placed on distributed data processing in sensor networks and differences between sensor and computer networks. Laboratory exercises enable an implementation of small sensor network for real application in the frame of individual student project.
