Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Langendörfer, Peter
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Every winter semester
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:Participants know the architecture of wireless sensor networks. They can select and classify protocols for different applications. Participants can design and understand complex protocols. They understand the connection between physical impacts on communication and necessary technical means to keep the network alive. They can design own networks and argue about the design decisions. They can judge about future developments.
Contents:Architecture of sensor networks, node-architectures, MAC protocols, addressing, routing, synchronisation, operating systems, topology management, applications, security and key-exchange protocols.
Recommended Prerequisites:Basic knowledge of technical computer science concepts and communication systems.
Mandatory Prerequisites:None
