Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are the enabler 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 tiny, autonomous nodes equipped with wireless transmission and sensing capabilities for a huge variety of applications, such as healthcare, autonomous transportation systems, industrial manufacturing automation, or smart grids. The focus of the course is on distributed algorithms and protocols 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.
