The course introduces the fundamentals of sensor networks (primarily wireless sensor networks). Emphasis will be placed on distributed data processing in sensor networks and differences between sensor and computer networks. Laboratory exercises enable an implementation of small sensor network for real application in the frame of individual student project.

Course outlines:

1. Introduction: motivation, sensors, data acquisition
2. Sensor Network Architecture, Wireless Sensor Networks
3. Fundamentals of Communications, Protocols
4. Sensor Network Management
5. Design principles for WSNs
6. Models for Programmability in Sensor Networks
7. MAC protocols Low duty cycle protocols and wakeup concepts,
Wakeup radio concepts, Contention-based protocols, Schedule-based protocols
8. Link-layer protocols, ARQ techniques, FEC techniques, Hybrid schemes, Framing ,Link management
9. Naming and addressing
10. Time synchronization,
11. Localization and positioning
12. Topology control
13. Routing protocols
14. Application of Sensor Networks
