ECE 245 Wireless Sensors and Sensor Networks

The course focuses on developing a thorough understanding of sensors, actuators and sensor networks spanning deployment, system architecture and communication requirements. MAC protocols, data gathering, routing and queuing are covered by using lectures and a series of specific examples and problems. These illustrate and require the student to understand analysis and design of sensors networks. Finally, the course introduces the student to advanced topics such as collaborative signal processing, distributed computation and security.
