Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are the essential infrastructure of the Internet of Things (IoT). WSNs are next step of the revolution that Internet has brought to the world of computing, entertainment, work, and human interaction. WSNs are networks of devices equipped with data collection, computing and wireless transmission capabilities. They are used for a huge variety of applications such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, industry 4.0 or smart grids. The focus of the course is on distributed algorithms for WSNs. The course starts with an introduction on applications and then presents the essential design methods for networking, data analysis, and control by WSNs.

 

Learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to provide the participants with a basic knowledge of wireless sensor networks (WSN)

After completing the course the student should

  • Know the essential communication, data analysis, and control methods to cope with WSNs
  • Analyze the performance of WSNs protocols
  • Apply the design methods to practical use cases 
  • Be able to develop a research project on WSNs

 

Course main content

The focus of the course is on distributed algorithms (data analysis and control) and networking protocols for WSNs. The course starts with an introduction on applications and then presents the essential design methods for networking (how to transmit data), data analysis (how to perfom data analysis), and control (how to use the data in closed loop control) by WSNs.
