Active participation, seminar work, exam.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
Introduce the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) as a new technology area in research and industry. Define and explain the essential challenges of resource constrained Wireless Sensor Network design and implementation. Give both theoretical and practical tools for WSN design and utilization. Concentrate on selected topics of energy-efficient protocol and platform functionalities. Evaluate the potential application scenarios and building blocks for WSNs.
