Course Description

The “intelligence” of smart environments (cities, workplaces, homes) is mainly due to the different sensors that are embedded in roads, walls, or integrated in the smart devices of the users. These sensors continuously monitor the surrounding physical world, gather raw data, which are then shared by joining them in a network. The raw data are processed and then value added information is generated and fed back to the users. The course provides an insight into the broad area of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). It discusses the problems of data gathering, processing and ad hoc communication for resource-constrained devices, it presents the necessary middleware services, and briefly touches the areas of security and privacy related to wireless sensor networks. It presents the most important current and future application domains of sensor networks, special emphasis being on applications and services related to intelligent environments.
