13690 - Hands on Wireless Sensor Network Applications Modulübersicht

Module Number: 13690
Module Title:Hands on Wireless Sensor Network Applications
  Praktische Anwendungen von drahtlosen Sensornetzwerken
Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Langendörfer, Peter
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Every summer semester
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:After successfully completing the module, students are acquainted with the practical approach for implementing a wireless sensor network application. They know the technical foundations as well as the security and data protection aspects.
They are able to recognise the different aspects of the application and determine the partly conflicting requirements from this. They can make the necessary decisions to determine the final application and its features. In the case of several solutions, possibly with several parameters, they are able to find an optimal solution.
  • Architecture of wireless sensor node
  • Mechanisms to save energy
  • Communication protocols and data processing
  • Security and privacy aspects
These topics are prototypically implemented in the exercises using example problems.
